Using DNA to Investigate Cleaner Energy Sources
The key to unlocking cleaner energy might be in our DNA, according to a
by Stanford scientists. By combining synthetic DNA with microscopic particles, geothermal energy researchers at the university hope to tap into the widely available but often overlooked cleaner energy source all over the world.
Kicking Off FLAME 2016
27: The number of times guests have been welcomed to the Conference on Recent Advances in Flame Retardancy of Polymeric Materials.
Scientists Create Metal Foam that Turns Bullets into Dust on Impact
A new composite metal foam (CMF) has the potential to offer unprecedented protection from bullets or other projectiles. Developed by researchers with North Carolina State and the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Center, this armor can dissolve a bullet into dust upon impact.
Graphene Nanoflake-based Film Cools Electronics
In recent years, there has been tremendous growth, both technologically and in terms of demand, in electronic devices and systems. The technological progress has come on two main fronts: increased functionality on a single device unit and miniaturization of each unit. Both of these developments have increased the need for thermal management technologies.
Drug Repurposing May Be A Viable Strategy for Alzheimer's Disease
The rapidly increasing incidence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), improving diagnostic technologies, and the prospect of new therapies are driving the global AD market. BCC Research reports that the need for effective treatments has become even more urgent, especially given the failures of several prominent disease-modifying agents in late-stage development. AD is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects people older than 65 years. Characteristics of the disease include the gradual deterioration of brain cells, accompanied by cognitive and functional impairment. AD manifests as dementia (memory loss), impaired reasoning, repetitive movements, agitation, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other symptoms.
NIST Technical Note 1906: Ground Limestone Optimizes Mixture Paste Content
Earlier this year, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published an approach to replacing not only cement powder, but also cement paste consisting of the cement and water, with appropriately sized limestone powders. The intent is to lessen the high energy and carbon dioxide footprints of cement production by reducing the cement content of concrete.
Look! It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Cloud?
Early in the 20th century, as the scientific community grappled with the often confounding results of experiments that were ever so slowly laying the groundwork for quantum physics, the German physicist, Werner Heisenberg, made a profound comment about the nature of observation. “Natural science does not simply describe and explain nature,” Heisenberg said. “It is part of the interplay between nature and ourselves; it describes nature as exposed to our method of questioning.”
