Research Trends

  • The colloidal diamond could make light waves as useful as electrons in computing, and hold promise for a host of other applications. Researchers have devised a new process for the reliable self-assembly of colloids in a diamond formation that could lead to cheap, scalable fabrication of such structures.
  • A new ultra-affordable and accessible hearing aid made from open-source electronics could soon be available worldwide, according to a new study.
  • Emerging use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) makes it possible to continuously measure shallow changes in elevation of Earth surface. A study now shows that the quality of these measurements may have improved significantly during the pandemic, at least at some stations. The results show which factors should be considered in the future when […]
  • Most of the wind available on land is too gentle to push commercial wind turbine blades, but now researchers have designed a kind of ‘tiny wind turbine’ that can scavenge wind energy from breezes as little as those created by a brisk walk. The method is a low-cost and efficient way of collecting light breezes […]
  • Nanoscale vortices known as skyrmions can be created in many magnetic materials. For the first time, researchers have managed to create and identify antiferromagnetic skyrmions with a unique property: critical elements inside them are arranged in opposing directions. Scientists have succeeded in visualizing this phenomenon using neutron scattering.
  • Scientists have discovered that mindful meditation can help subjects learn and improve the ability to mind-control brain computer interfaces (BCIs).
  • A new analysis reveals the behavior of the supermassive black hole in the center of the M87 galaxy across multiple years, indicating the crescent-like shadow feature appears to be wobbling.
  • Researchers have developed a method for fast, cheap, yet accurate testing for COVID-19 infection. The method simplifies and frees the testing from expensive reaction steps, enabling upscaling of the diagnostics.
