A method for designing materials capable of slowing the propagation of light over a broad range of wavelengths has been developed by researchers at the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing.
How structural flaws dictate failure strength and deformation in nanosized alloys with super-resilient properties
A study from A*STAR reveals that designers of metallic-glass-based nanodevices must account for tiny flaws in alloy frameworks to avoid unpredictable catastrophic failure. Understanding how nanoscale metallic glass fractures ...
For engine designers in the digital age, time is money. And that time is measured in computer cycles.
A simple formula that describes the initial deformation of a droplet as it hits a solid surface is likely to help to model droplet behavior in a variety of different contexts, shows new research by A*STAR.
Extracting meaningful information out of clinical datasets can mean the difference between a successful diagnosis and a protracted illness. However datasets can vary widely both in terms of the number of 'features' measured ...
In the second it takes to 'like' this article, 6,000 tweets, 5,000 profile updates, 4,000 photos and 500 blogs will have been posted on multiple social media platforms. As that second extends to a minute, a day and even a ...
A*STAR researchers have performed theoretical calculations to explain why semiconductor microspheres embedded with metal nanoparticles are so good at using sunlight to catalyze reactions.
Researchers in Singapore are developing a microclimatic modelling tool to prevent further deterioration of the country's urban heat island phenomenon.
Scientists using supercomputers found genes sensitive to cold and drought in a plant help it survive climate change. These findings increase basic understanding of plant adaptation and can be applied to improve crops.
Calculations reveal how mixtures of different elements can control the thermal properties of nanowires
A mathematical model of heat flow through miniature wires could help develop thermoelectric devices that efficiently convert heat—even their own waste heat—into electricity.
