New hybrid energy method could fuel the future of rockets, spacecraft for exploration

Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb-like pattern. Graphene is considered to be the world's thinnest, strongest and most...

Your body has internet and now it can’t be hacked

Radiative communication using electro-magnetic (EM) fields amongst the wearable and implantable devices act as the backbone for information exchange around a human body. However,...
New chemical conversion process turns plastic waste into fuel

New chemical conversion process turns plastic waste into fuel

Almost 8 million plastics flow into the oceans each year. Plastic waste disposal, whether recycled or thrown away, does not mean the end of the...
RBCs, Blood infection

Blood infections need to be treated fast

Bloodstream infection (BSI) is one of the most devastating preventable complications in Critical Care Units. It has far-reaching consequences resulting in a prolonged length...

High-temperature electronics? That’s hot

Most electronics only function within a certain temperature range. Now, scientists at Purdue University have blended two organic materials together and created electronics that can withstand extreme...
An eastern gray whale, pictured off the coast of Mexico, and its cousins to the west have similar levels of genetic diversity, though they have genetically diverged into two distinct subgroups, according to a Purdue University study. A genetic analysis of the whales suggests there are enough genetic resources between the populations to offer hope for the critically endangered populations to the west.

Genetic study provides new information about endangered whales

Seek after an alarmingly low number of grey whales in the western Pacific Ocean may rest with their cousins toward the east, as indicated...
A new tool developed by Purdue researchers would automatically identify and expose ways to make app features more energy-efficient, saving battery life. (Purdue University image/Kayla Wiles)

AI tool automatically reveals how to write apps that drain less battery

There are multiple applications available to do a single task. To do a single task, those apps consumes lots of battery and developers yet haven't...
Human centrioles labelled with antibodies against two proteins (Cep152, HsSAS-6) and imaged using super-resolution microscopy. From many individual particles showing projections of the centriole complex in various orientations (upper panel), by using a fused intermediate (yellow, lower panel), the newly developed method allows now to reconstruct a multicolor 3D model (lower panel) (credit: Christian Sieben/EPFL).

Super-resolution microscopy builds multicolor 3D from 2D

Purdue University, Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can "see" beyond the diffraction limit of light. The system has accumulated expanding interest as of...
