An international team of researchers has created tiny, complex scaffolds that mimic the intricate network of collagen fibres that form the human eardrum.
The watery world under winter's ice is a mystery. It's also a world full of sound. Now, as the days lengthen and the ice is retreating, researchers at Michigan Technological University are wrapping up their first winter season ...
Detecting an "earthquake" on Venus would seem to be an impossible task. The planet's surface is a hostile zone of crushing pressure and scorching temperatures—about 874 degrees F, hot enough to melt lead—that would destroy ...
A simple blood test may one day replace invasive biopsies thanks to a new device that uses sound waves to separate blood-borne cancer cells from white blood cells.
When football helmets collide, they produce an unmistakable sound. With concerns rising over concussion risks, some parents and others are increasingly concerned about each pop they hear.
Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field.
A system for using sound waves to spot potentially dangerous cracks in pipes, aircraft engines and nuclear power plants has been developed by a University of Strathclyde academic.
The performance of mobile phone cameras and solar cells could be boosted by "nano-earthquakes", researchers have found.
The ability to control the intrinsic angular momentum of individual electrons – their "spins" – could lead to a world of new technologies that involve storing and processing information.
