Crystals may help reveal hidden Kilauea Volcano behavior

Scientists use Kilauea crystals to understand hidden volcano behavior.

Enabling electric cars to recharge themselves wirelessly

It is no longer inconvenient to charge objects in motions, thanks to a technology developed by Stanford engineers. Engineers have taken a step forward...

Stanford’s smart toilet analyzes urine and feces for signs of disease

Human urine and feces contain a lot of information about human health and wellbeing, and therefore scientists and engineers are developing new technologies that...

Motorized ankle exoskeleton boosts runner’s speed by 10%

Exoskeletons - robotic wearable technologies that increase our physical capabilities - are slowly leaving the world of comics to become a reality. A number...

A new way to precisely control photons

Photons are more challenging to control than electrons. But, anyway, it is essential to control photons to develop futuristic technologies like quantum computers. Scientists from...

Trojan Horse: A nanoparticle that eats away plaques that cause heart attacks

A potential treatment for atherosclerosis.

More rain and less snow means increased flood risk

By analyzing more than two decades of data in the western U.S., scientists have shown that flood sizes increase exponentially as a higher fraction of precipitation falls as rain, offering insight into how flood risks may change in a warming world with less snow.

American’s body temperature has decreased since the 1800s

It is not what people think it is.

First-ever recording of a blue whale’s heart rate

With a lot of ingenuity and a little luck, researchers monitored the heart rate of a blue whale in the wild.

Scientists finally found superconductivity in place they’ve been looking for decades

The Hubbard model used to understand electron behavior in numerous quantum materials, now shows us its stripes, and superconductivity too, in simulations for cuprate superconductors.

A simple device can reduce rates of child diarrhea

An automatic chlorine dispenser installed at shared community water points reduces rates of diarrhea in children. The researchers hope the technique can improve uptake by providing good-tasting water and avoiding the need for behavior change.

Counting sound particles with quantum microphone

Now it is possible to measure individual particles of sound, called phonons- thanks to Stanford Scientists who developed quantum microphone. The quantum microphone is...
