In-depth review charts the scientific understanding of rainbows and highlights the many practical applications of this fascinating interaction between light, liquid and gas.
A Filipino fisherman in western Palawan island has found possibly the world's biggest pearl, but he didn't know it.
The forward march of science often blunders into the realization that nature's way of doing things is a lot more complicated than we thought.
The pursuit of next-generation technologies places a premium on producing increased speed and efficiency with components built at scales small enough to function on a computer chip.
There's no need to reinvent the genetic wheel.
Photons are bizarre: They have no mass, but they do have momentum. And that allows researchers to do counterintuitive things with photons, such as using light to push matter around.
A new biomaterial can be used to study how and when stem cells sense the mechanics of their surrounding environment, found a team led by Robert Mauck, PhD, the Mary Black Ralston Professor for Education and Research in Orthopaedic ...
Ultrasound imaging is used around the world to help visualize developing babies and diagnose disease. Sound waves bounce off the tissues, revealing their different densities and shapes. The next step in ultrasound technology ...
In a paper presented today at the Association for Computing Machinery's special interest group on data communication (SIGCOMM) conference in Florianópolis, Brazil, a team of computer science researchers at the University ...
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories' Combustion Research Facility are developing the understanding necessary to build cleaner combustion technologies that will in turn reduce climate impact.
