Trailblazer in computational complexity theory to receive Knuth Priize Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Association for Computing Machinery) The 2018 Donald E. Knuth Prize will be awarded to Johan Torkel Håstad of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) for his long and sustained record of milestone breakthroughs at the foundations of computer science, with major impact on many areas including optimization, cryptography, parallel computing, and complexity theory.
Stretching beyond limits Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(University of California - Santa Barbara) Novel research optimizes both elasticity and rigidity in the same material without the usual tradeoffs
New manufacturing technique could improve common problem in printing technology Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Binghamton University) A new manufacturing technique developed by researchers from Binghamton University, State University at New York may be able to avoid the 'coffee ring' effect that plagues inkjet printers.
ShareBackup could keep data in the fast lane Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM

Most wear-resistant metal alloy in the world engineered at Sandia National Laboratories Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia's materials science team has engineered a platinum-gold alloy believed to be the most wear-resistant metal in the world. It's 100 times more durable than high-strength steel, making it the first alloy, or combination of metals, in the same class as diamond and sapphire, nature's most wear-resistant materials.
ASRC at GC/CUNY Photonics Initiative wins $3.2 million DARPA grant Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Advanced Science Research Center, GC/CUNY) Andrea Alù, director of the Photonics Initiative at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York and Einstein Professor of Physics at The Graduate Center, has received a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) award of up to $3.2 million to support basic nanophotonics research.

Scientists create antilaser for ultracold atoms condensate Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(ITMO University) An international team of scientists developed the world's first antilaser for nonlinear Bose-Einstein condensate of ultracold atoms. For the first time, scientists demonstrated that it is possible to absorb the selected signal completely, even though the nonlinear system makes it difficult to predict the waves behaviour. The results can be used to manipulate superfluid flows, create atomic lasers, and also study nonlinear optical systems. The study was published in Science Advances.
Children put on by robots Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Bielefeld University) Can robots induce the same social influence and peer pressure as hu-mans do? A new study shows that children adopt a false claim when this is expressed by a group of robots.
Internet of Things technology can boost classroom learning and bridge gender divide Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(University of Kent) The use of Internet of Things devices in the classroom can have major educational benefits and appeal to both genders if designed and used in the right way, according to new research carried out by the University of Kent.
Smallest transistor worldwide switches current with a single atom in solid electrolyte Thursday August 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), physicist Professor Thomas Schimmel and his team have developed a single-atom transistor, the smallest transistor worldwide. This quantum electronics component switches electrical current by controlled repositioning of a single atom, now also in the solid state in a gel electrolyte. The single-atom transistor works at room temperature and consumes very little energy, which opens up entirely new perspectives for information ...
