Ball bearings set to help with fuel efficiency in hybrid vehicles
Because of a more efficient integration of the engine and electric motor, which in turn has encouraged a culture of lowering fuel consumption and fuel emissions, the demand for hybrid vehicles has dramatically increased in recent years.
Mobile ultrasound scanner detects defects in ship propellers
Ship propellers are as large as a single-family home and manufacturing them is quite a challenge. During the casting process, pores and miniscule cracks can form that in the worst case may cause a blade to break. Now these massive components can be inspected for defects in a non-invasive manner, using a new kind of ultrasound process.
Thin layer ceramic coatings innovation
Producing thin ceramic components has until now been a laborious and expensive process, as parts often get distorted during manufacture and have to be discarded as waste.
Charging your batteries - without the cord!
Cell phones and flashlights operate by battery without trouble. Yet because of the limited lifespan, battery power is not a feasible option for many applications in the fields of medicine or test engineering, such as implants or probes.
Optimizing networks by simulation
By the year 2020, thousands of kilometers of new grids will be operating in Germany to permit even more extensive use of power from renewable sources. However, these new "smart grids" also come with increased complexity, costs and vulnerability.
Botnet causing havoc on the web!
Zombie Robots Are Eating My Site! One of my sites has been under constant attack since February 21, 2012. And nothing can stop it.
Artificial Skin, So Robots Can "Feel"
Pitt and MIT researchers accomplish first demonstration of oscillating gels that can be "revived" by mechanical pressure.
Dual-laser technique sensor
Identifying chemicals from a distance could take a step forward with the introduction of a two-laser system being developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Waterless manufacturing method for micro-chips
The tiny, high-speed computer chips found in every modern electronic device bear little resemblance to their bulky, slow ancestors of decades ago. Different materials, new designs and new production techniques have ensured successive generations of integrated circuits offer ever more performance at lower cost. Groundbreaking EU-funded research is helping to continue the trend.
Piezoelectric Graphene Created in 'Scotch Tape Technique'
In what became known as the 'Scotch tape technique," researchers first extracted graphene with a piece of adhesive in 2004. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb, hexagonal pattern. It looks like chicken wire.
