Researchers developed a Technology for converting a metal to a semiconductor simply by shining Laser beams.

Researchers at MIT have succeeded in producing and measuring a coupling of photons and electrons on the surface of an unusual type of material called a topological insulator. This type of coupling had been predicted by theorists, but never observed. The researchers suggest that this finding could lead to the creation of materials whose electronic … Continue reading “Researchers developed a Technology for converting a metal to a semiconductor simply by shining Laser beams.”

Hydrogen-powered car helps grow food using Fuel Cell

A car that can help to grow food has been unveiled as part of an exhibition in London to promote hydrogen fuel cell technology. At the heart of the Fuel Cell Farm, an exhibition at London’s Design Museum, is a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell. The water produced by the hydrogen-powered car is filtered and pumped … Continue reading “Hydrogen-powered car helps grow food using Fuel Cell”

Robot ‘Anklebot’ helps determine ankle stiffness for helping stroke patients to walk.

MIT professor Neville Hogan and his colleagues in the Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation have measured the stiffness of the ankle in various directions using a robot called the “Anklebot.” This measured data could aid in rehabilitation from strokes, other motor disorders. Hogan and his Team developed the Anklebot as an experimental and … Continue reading “Robot ‘Anklebot’ helps determine ankle stiffness for helping stroke patients to walk.”

NASA sets new data transmission record by shooting laser at the Moon.

NASA reports that it has used a pulsed laser beam to transmit data over the 384,633 kilometers (239,000 miles) between the Moon and the Earth at a transfer rate of 622 megabits per second. This historic transmissions took place between a ground station in New Mexico and the LADEE robotic spacecraft now orbiting the moon. … Continue reading “NASA sets new data transmission record by shooting laser at the Moon.”

ClearSign’s innovative Electrodynamic Combustion Control Makes Power Plants Cleaner

An U.S company called ClearSign Combustion has developed a technology to eliminate key pollutants from power plants and refineries, and make them much more efficient. The technique involves electric fields to control the combustion of fuel by manipulating the shape and brightness of flames. This technology could offer a cheaper way to reduce pollution in … Continue reading “ClearSign’s innovative Electrodynamic Combustion Control Makes Power Plants Cleaner”
