An optical probe with the thickness of a human hair, has been developed in a joint research effort by Australian and German medical clinicians and engineers. Named as the ‘smallest freeform 3D imaging probe’, it has proved its ability by 3D scanning from inside human and mice blood vessels.
This revolutionary discovery has the ability to eliminate foodborne germs like Salmonella and E.coli. Although preventable foodborne diseases can be dangerous and common. Handling contaminated food can spread food-borne pathogens and this can also cross-contaminate any other food or person that comes in contact with it.
The ever increasing demand for renewable and clean energy drives the researchers to come up with more efficient and cost-effective ideas. This has become a success story for the team of scientists from Tulane and San Diego Universities, USA who came up with a high performing, hybrid Solar Energy Converter.
A manufactured material named, ‘Proteus’ has become the world’s first non-cuttable material according to a study published in the Nature journal today. The research was a joint effort by scientists from Durham University UK and Germany's Fraunhofer Institute.
A military program called The Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS), is planning to use marine biology for military monitoring activities, which is run by the US Department of Defence.
Harvesting solar energy just by applying a paint coat on a conductive surface? This may be the answer to the high cost energy bills, I think at least a step towards right direction. A group of researchers at the University of Notre Dame have developed a so-called "solar paint" by using semiconducting nanoparticles to harvest energy.
