New terahertz device could strengthen security Friday November 21st, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Northwestern University) We are all familiar with the security hassles that accompany air travel. Now a new type of security detection that uses terahertz radiation is looking to prove its promise. Northwestern University researchers have developed a room temperature, compact, tunable terahertz source that could lead to advances in homeland security and space exploration. Able to detect explosives, chemical agents and dangerous biological substances from safe distances, devices using terahertz waves could make ...

Researchers get $1.25 million to advance carbon storage Friday November 21st, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Clemson University) Clemson University researchers and their partners at Georgia Institute of Technology, UNAVCO and Grand Resources Inc. received a $1.25 million award from the Department of Energy to develop technology that will significantly improve the ability to monitor and safeguard geologic carbon storage.

Researchers study impact of power prosthetic failures on amputees Friday November 21st, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(North Carolina State University) Powered lower limb prosthetics hold promise for improving the mobility of amputees, but errors in the technology may also cause some users to stumble or fall. New research examines exactly what happens when these technologies fail, with the goal of developing a new generation of more robust powered prostheses.

Novel robotic walker invented by NUS researchers helps patients regain natural gait Friday November 21st, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(National University of Singapore) A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore's Faculty of Engineering has invented a novel robotic walker that helps patients carry out therapy sessions to regain their leg movements and natural gait. The system also increases productivity of physiotherapists and improves the quality of rehabilitation sessions.

A coating that protects against heat and oxidation Friday November 21st, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft) Researchers have developed a coating technique that they plan to use to protect turbine engine and waste incinerator components against heat and oxidation. A topcoat from micro-scaled hollow aluminum oxide spheres provides heat insulation, in the lab, already proved more economical than conventional techniques.
