Research analyzes academic abstracts written by students

Abstracts are summaries that introduce scientific articles. Their purpose is to inform as to the content of the text so that in a short time potential readers can get a general idea of the contents and decide whether they ...

Semi-random scattering of light

What is the exact path of light inside a highly scattering material like white paint? This is a question that is impossible to answer, as the particles inside the paint are distributed randomly. This, at the same time, is ...

Researchers develop simple method to 3-D print milk products

Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have developed a method to perform direct ink writing (DIW) 3-D printing of milk-based products at room temperature while maintaining its temperature-sensitive ...

Team designs carbon nanostructure stronger than diamonds

Researchers at the University of California, Irvine and other institutions have architecturally designed plate-nanolattices—nanometer-sized carbon structures—that are stronger than diamonds as a ratio of strength to density.

Printing complex cellulose-based objects

Researchers from ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) have set a new world record: they 3-D printed complex objects with higher cellulose content than that of any other ...

Crowdsourcing plot lines to help the creative process

Creative authors could soon have a new option to help overcome writer's block, thanks to a system launched by researchers in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State.

New record: 3-D-printed optical-electronic integration

Optoelectronic integration offers a promising strategy to simultaneously obtain the merits of electrons and photons when they serve as information carriers, including high-density communication and high-speed information ...

Remarkable letter reveals earthquake drama for nuns in exile

Traveling around Europe in search of a new home after the dissolution of the monasteries must have been dramatic enough for England's oldest community of Bridgettine nuns. But a remarkable newly-catalogued letter shows they ...
