Study: Sensor with 100,000 times higher sensitivity could bolster thermal imaging

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Army-funded research developed a new microwave radiation sensor with 100,000 times higher sensitivity than currently available commercial sensors. Researchers said better detection of microwave radiation will enable improved thermal...
Study: Why writing by hand makes kids smarter

Study: Why writing by hand makes kids smarter

Professor Audrey van der Meer at NTNU believes that national guidelines should be put into place to ensure that children receive at least a minimum of handwriting training. Results from several studies have shown that...

Study: New tool shows main highways of disease development

As people get older they often jump from disease to disease and carry the burden of more chronic diseases at once. But is there a system in the way diseases follow each other? Danish...
Study: Coral's resilience to warming may depend on iron

Study: Coral’s resilience to warming may depend on iron

How well corals respond to climate change could depend in part on the already scarce amount of iron available in their environment, according to a new study led by Penn State researchers. The study...
Study: New fire containment research addresses risk and safety

Study: New fire containment research addresses risk and safety

As 2020 has shown, wildfire frequency, size and severity is threatening communities and natural resources across the western U.S. As a result, there is a high demand for decision-making to mitigate risk, improve firefighter...
Researchers precisely measure total amount of matter in the universe

Researchers precisely measure total amount of matter in the universe

A top goal in cosmology is to precisely measure the total amount of matter in the universe, a daunting exercise for even the most mathematically proficient. A team led by scientists at the University...
