The electrodes for connections on the "sunny side" of a solar cell need to be not just electrically conductive, but transparent as well. As a result, electrodes are currently made either by using thin strips of silver in ...
Studies find airplane crews at high altitude are exposed to potentially harmful levels of radiation from cosmic rays.
Using a climate model that can tag sources of soot from different global regions and can track where it lands on the Tibetan Plateau, researchers have determined which areas around the plateau contribute the most soot—and ...
Close-up film shows for the first time how ants use 'combs' and 'brushes' to keep their antennae clean
Using unique mechanical experiments and close-up video, Cambridge researchers have shown how ants use microscopic 'combs' and 'brushes' to keep their antennae clean, which could have applications for developing cleaners for ...
Radioactive particles can be detected deeper in the ground, thanks to the application of artificial intelligence technology developed by University of Stirling researchers.
As we walk along a forest path, the soil beneath our feet seems like a uniform substance. However, it is an intricate network of soil particles, pores, minerals, soil microbes, and more. It is awash in variety.
CERN, home of the 27-kilometre Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is developing a new particle accelerator just two metres long.
From targeted drug delivery to the self-assembly of nano robots, new research by Northumbria University, Newcastle, is using super-sized atoms to reveal the behaviour of liquids in microscopic channels.
We can't see them, but the air that we breathe contains a wealth of biological particles which could damage our health.
