Two scientists fill in gaps in current models for downward longwave radiation in China to include consideration of different weather conditions such as cloud coverage.
A new generalization of the inverse Henderson problem fills a gap that previously existed in the theoretical foundation for many bottom-up coarse-graining techniques employed in soft matter simulations.
While using ambient air to generate uniform plasma, scientists successfully increase discharge gap to 7 mm, beating the previous record by 75 %.
New paper explores the photo-thermal response of nanoparticles based on their size and the illumination wavelength and shows that silver nanoparticles are more efficient than gold only when smaller than 20 nm.
Researchers present process to design, optimize and manufacture continuously graded acoustic porous materials with near-perfect noise absorption in given frequency range.
The determination of low temperatures in high fields is a difficult task. The resonances of quartz tuning forks are a promising solution.
Though surfactants have widespread applications in microfluidics, their effects on droplet dynamics are not well understood.
An implantable nanodevice may be the solution to current neuron stimulation techniques, which have limited range and require inconvenient, high-power equipment.
Researchers investigated the origins of unusual ferroelectric behavior of newly found thin-film ferroelectric materials for semiconductor memory applications.
