We recently told you how researchers in Australia used bark from eucalyptus trees to produce the highly useful material graphene in a low-cost, more eco-friendly way than typical processes. Now a researcher in the United States—working with a team in the Netherlands--also has reported a more eco-friendly and inexpensive the carbon-based material, which has myriad uses due to its high electrical conductivity, low weight, and high strength. From left to right, A vial of graphite like what you would find in an ordinary pencil; a vial of graphene oxide, produced by exfoliating graphite—shedding the layers of the material—and mixing it with the bacteria Shewanella; a vial of the resulting product—graphene materials; and a vial of graphene materi.

The square-rigged saildrone was tough enough to withstand 80 mph winds and 50-foot waves as it autonomously circumnavigated Antarctica. (Image source: Saildrone). The Southern Ocean around Antarctica is a dangerous and foreboding place. Wind speeds can exceed 80 miles per hour and waves as high as a 5-story building are common, along with frequent icebergs. The dangers of the region mean that there isn’t any regular ship traffic, making it difficult to obtain accurate weather data. Yet, acquiring this data from the Southern Ocean is crucial to making scientific assessments of the Earth’s atmosphere, climate, and status of the oceans. Filling in a Blind Spot. To meet the challenge, a consortium of researchers sponsored by the Li Ka Shing Found.

Supplying raw materials for the increasing volumes of electric vehicles (EVs) produced worldwide is a source of growing concern among battery and vehicle manufacturers. It should be no surprise that one primary worry is the volatility in availability of the lithium that is used in lithium ion batteries. Although the supply chains for mining and processing the material are somewhat convoluted, the general sense among industry experts is that there is presently an oversupply of lithium, which will act, over the short term, to keep prices stable, if not pushing them into a decline. According to a recent report from , however, the same cannot be said for nickel. So Many Uses. Nickel is an amazing useful material. The metal is both corrosion resi.

Printing technology to create a printed drawing or some other type of image typically requires ink. However, an international group of researchers in Japan have succeeded printing one of the most iconic Japanese artworks without the use of traditional pigments in a first of its kind for this type of print production. A team at Kyoto University not only a version of Japanese artist’s Katsushika Hokusai’s “Great Wave” (called "Ukiyo-e" in Japanese) without ink, but researchers also fabricated the smallest version of the artwork to date—just 1 millimeter in width—said Professor Easan Sivaniah, head of the Pureosity Group at iCeMS, Kyoto University. This would not have been possible without the use of polymers to create the image rather than ty.

Solar panels have been a great benefit to the world’s interest in deriving electricity from alternative energy sources. However, one drawback to the technology is that the panels and cells themselves are created from toxic and non-environmentally friendly materials. Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis—working with the Department of Energy (DoE)--aim to help solve this problem with a discovery that paves the way for nontoxic perovskite solar cells. An atomic model of a new semiconductor material (left), the most promising of 30,000 oxides in a potential solar panel. At right is a scanning transmission electron micrograph showing the atomic structure of the material, along with snapshot of the synthesized powder. (Image source: Ro.

Opto 22 has released the white paper, “,” which discusses how controls engineers can use PLCs to meet the demand for obtaining, using and sharing data. The white paper focuses on three main communication challenges: complexity, security, and expense. The edge-based PLC was created to include a number of functions needed for network-based data capture, from traditioanl automation through IoT applications. (Image source: Opto 22). IoT and other data-intensive automation applications usually require many steps and a lot of middleware: hardware, drivers, parsers, and custom software. These steps tend to be time-consuming to set up, difficult to maintain and change, and create major security concerns. This white paper was designed to explain how

In traditional CAD environments, geometry can be defined and represented in more ways than one. If you have ever used a 3D modeling program, you’ve most likely worked with meshes, BReps, or both, depending on the task at hand. Although meshes and BReps have their strong points, their weaknesses rear their head as product geometry becomes more complex. Managing the size and performance of complex geometry requires a computationally lighter means of defining and representing geometry. By integrating a field-driven design approach based on the implicit modeling technology, designers can focus on engineering work that matters, and spend less time with non-value-added tasks. Implicit Geometry. Implicit modeling is a powerful way to define, change.

Losing a limb is probably one of the most physically challenging things a person can face, which is one of the reasons why researchers have been working for decades to develope prosthetics with increasingly more advanced and "life-like" movements and capabilities. A team at the University of Utah has contributed to this aim with the for a next-generation prosthetic arm that can "feel" and make movements according to the thoughts of the person wearing it. University of Utah researchers Greg Clark (right) and Jake George (left) with the LUKE prosthetic arm, which can sense touch and move with the wearer’s thoughts.
