Hear how engineers and technologists are creating for good out in the world.
Just as the economy was recovering, a geopolitical crisis has replaced it as a threat to the European business jet industry. The U.S. and other countries have imposed sanctions on wealthy Russians because of the ongoing situation in eastern Ukraine, but at least part of the impact has been felt in Europe.
The latest move comes with efforts to merge Samsung affiliates gaining speed after the patriarch of group’s controlling family was hospitalized in May.
Lighter vehicles, stronger nuclear reactors and more compatible medical implants are among the goals of a new billion-euro European Space Agency metals project.
In recent years, it has become possible to see directly individual atoms using electron microscopy -- especially in graphene, the one-atom-thick sheet of carbon. Scientists have now shown how an electron beam can move silicon atoms through the graphene lattice without causing damage. The research combines advanced electron microscopy with demanding computer simulations.
Highway projects received 47% of the sixth TIGER round's dollars; transit got 27%, maritime 13% and rail 11.5%.
Darkside Scientific recently drew a lot of gazes its way in its video release of a car treated to the company's electroluminescent paint called LumiLor. Electroluminescence (EL) is a characteristic of a material that enables it to emit light in response to an electrical field. The company site said that at subatomic level, the process behind electroluminescence is radiative recombination, also known as spontaneous emission. In radiative recombination, phosphorescent substances emit photons (light particles) in response to alternating electrical current. As Geek.com noted, a custom deployment of this kind of paint with some custom electronics allows different sections of painted areas to light up independently. Seeing what the company did to the car, one can easily imagine marketing opportunities for this path to eye-grabbing showmanship.
In order to make any electronic device smarter we need internet. This idea gave way to the concept of “Internet of Things” which can be defined as interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing-like devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. In other words every device must be capable of receiving and transmitting information to other devices. They only problem with adding a wireless radio to any device is that it increases the bulk as well as power consumption of a...
