Chemical And Biological Characterization Spot The Faith Of Nanoparticles

Graphene has transformed material research worldwide. Graphene is considered an innovative material that could impact a wide variety of fields. The electronic, chemical, and structural aspects of graphene are responsible for its widespread application possibilities. Graphene, an attention-grabbing allotrope of […]

Surface Stabilization Assures Safety Of Buckminster Fullerene

The discovery of nanostructured carbon material “fullerenes” has emerged as a new substitute for widely-accepted nanocarbon material like graphene in the world of nano-research. The advent of this new nanomaterial by Kroto et al. in 1985 gave it a chance […]

Changing Luminance Levels Affects Color Discrimination Abilities In Dogs

Background: A common myth suggests that dogs don’t see color, that they exclusively see the world in shades of grey. Dogs have two cone photoreceptors within the retina, compared to humans, who have three. The spectral peaks for these two […]

USC Researchers Develop Electrically-Assisted 3D Printing Process To Build Nacre-Inspired Smart Structures

Wearable sensors that can perform motion detection and health monitoring play an important role in our daily life. But most of the sensors are soft and cannot protect the human body. In order to solve this problem, researchers at the […]

Studying Gene Flow In Zambian Lions

In a study recently published in PLoS One, we have found that small numbers of lions in Zambia are moving across landscapes previously thought to be uninhabitable by lions, accounting for sustained high levels of diversity in the population. This […]

Renewable Energy Capacity Is Now Larger Than Coal

It’s no secret that the renewable energy sector has grown immensely over the course of the past decade. Yet it is still a bit of a surprise to learn that according to a report released by the Federal Energy Regulatory […]

Scientists Solve Key Flaw In Solar Panel Design That Has Reduced Efficiency For Decades

Scientists have recently identified a key structural problem in solar panels that reduced their efficiency. The silicon used to create solar panels had a defect in them which had previously gone undetected. This defect could potentially be behind a phenomenon […]

New Insights On Aquifer Perturbation After CO2 Injection As Illustrated By Rare Earth Element Behavior

Rare earth element (REE, lanthanides plus yttrium) behavior in natural environments has been extensively studied. REEs are valuable as components of electronic and renewable energy technologies. The European Community lists REEs as critical raw materials. An understanding of the mobility, […]

Is A Drone With A Thermal Camera As Good At Locating Grassland Songbird Nests As Traditional Search Methods?

As captured in the phrase, “the canary in the coal mine,” songbirds are known to be indicators of ecosystem health. Detecting downward population trends in songbirds can be a clue to biologists that an ecosystem is declining in quality or […]

Investigating Microglia And Macrophage Function After Intracerebral Hemorrhage And Other Brain Diseases

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), one of the most common types of stroke, affects millions of people each year. During this type of stroke, also called hemorrhagic stroke, blood accumulates in the brain after a blood vessel rupture, causing severe damage. Microglia, […]
