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...

Replacing electricity with light

Researchers are designing a nanoscale photon diode – a necessary component that could bring us closer to faster, more energy-efficient computers and communications that replace electricity with light.

New artificial intelligence tool helps diagnose brain aneurysms

A brain aneurysm is a bulge that forms in the blood vessel of your brain that could lead to severe health issues and possibly...

Rinsing heavy metals from contaminated soils using chemical process

Soil contamination by heavy metals is one of the major environmental problems. These poisonous heavy metals like lead and cadmium are released from mines...

Converting methane into carbon dioxide could help turn the tide of climate change

Scientists at Stanford University, in a recent study, have suggested that converting methane to CO2 may help combat climate change. Doing this could help...

How augmented reality affects people’s behavior?

There have been decades of research on the usability and educational value of augmented reality. However, less is known about how augmented reality affects...

Scientists find brain cells that make pain hurt

A team of scientists at Stanford University has identified a bundle of brain cells in mice responsible for the latter—that is, the negative emotions...

A wireless, battery-free, biodegradable blood flow sensor

Tracking the success of surgeries on veins is a challenging task as a first sign often takes time to come. By that time, the patient...
