New research challenges two prevailing theories on how Maya civilization began
The Maya civilization is well-known for its elaborate temples, sophisticated writing system, and mathematical and astronomical developments, yet the civilization's origins remain something of a mystery.
Researchers develop metamaterials able to control spread of light
Piezoelectric 'taxel' arrays convert motion to electronic signals for tactile imaging
Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals. The arrays ...
Study finds that residential lawns efflux more carbon dioxide than corn fields
More carbon dioxide is released from residential lawns than corn fields according to a new study. And much of the difference can likely be attributed to soil temperature. The data, from researchers at Elizabethtown ...
