Russian scientists developed a unique equipment for ultrasound examination Friday May 25th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University) Researchers of the laboratory 'Medical ultrasound equipment' of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) developed a high-tech device-transformer for ultrasound examination, named 'Ultrasound mobile'. The new equipment is the combination of three modifications in one device. Currently, each modification functions separately in the medical centers, the scientists of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University became the first who combined ...
Group of Brazilian researchers achieves almost instant magnetization of matter by light Friday May 25th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) In an experiment described in Physical Review Letters, a single photon aligned the spins of 6,000 electrons in only 50 picoseconds. The result offers prospects for technological applications in the electronic component industry.
RIOCATH, a revolutionary type of catheter inspired by a snail's eye Friday May 25th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IOCB Prague)) A revolutionary type of catheter, RIOCATH® (Reversal Inside-Out CATHeterisation), greatly reduces the risk of introducing infection into the body as well as the trauma of sensitive tissues.

New platform for analyzing global trade in the last two centuries Friday May 25th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) Researchers for the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), in collaboration with the University of Pisa (Italy), have created an interactive geo-referenced database which is able to analyse global trade in the last two centuries. Thanks to this new platform it is possible to more accurately assign a date to the first economic globalisation, which occurred much earlier than previously thought: in the 1830s.
