Nothing unusual in that, you might think, but Muhammad is 17 years old, and this is his first published manuscript. His work has generated a lot of attention Continue Reading

Researchers reach milestone in development of ultra-fast communications and computing

Researchers from the University of Utah’s departments of electrical and computer engineering and physics and astronomy have discovered that a special kind of perovskite, a combination of an organic and inorganic compound that has the same structure as the original mineral, can be layered on a silicon wafer to create Continue Reading

New engine optics to fuel future research

An optical setup developed by researchers at Sandia’s Combustion Research Facility and the Technical University of Denmark can now quantify the formation of soot — particulate matter consisting primarily of carbon — as a function of time and space for a variety of combustion processes. Initially, the researchers have focused on the Continue Reading

Brighter flexible electroluminescent film by adopting eye structure of nocturnal animals

A research team of DGIST’s Intelligent Devices and Systems Research Group has developed an electroluminescent film that is four times brighter than the existing one. The research team led by Dr. Byeong-dae Choi has developed a technology which can improve the luminance of electroluminescent devices by 422% compared to the Continue Reading
