New Technology Converts CO2 Into Usable Power And Chemicals-2

Cornell scientists develop new technology that makes large-scale carbon capture possible

A team of scientists has devised a new technology that turns carbon dioxide into a variety of useful chemical substances, while at the same time producing sizeable amounts of electrical energy. Recently published in Science Advances journal, the current research could help reduce environmentally-harmful CO2. At present, techniques for large-scale carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (or…

Elastic Luminescent Display Could Usher In Mood-Sensitive Robots-1

Incredibly elastic luminescent display could pave the way for mood-sensitive robots

Scientists from Cornell University have designed an incredibly elastic electroluminescent display that could pave the way for innovative mood-sensitive robots. The versatile “skin”, according to the researchers, is capable of displaying patient’s pulse and temperature, while also reacting to his or her mood. The breakthrough, the team believes, could result in significant advances in the…


Scientists from Cornell University develop the world’s first self-assembling superconductor

Scientists from Cornell University have developed an entirely new superconducting material that is capable of self-assembly. Unlike the magnets present inside an MRI machine, which are usually quite hard and rigid, the new substance is remarkably soft, almost like a plastic bottle. According to the researchers, it can arrange itself into a three-dimensional, gyroidal structure…
