turbulence

Kolmogorov Theory of Turbulence and Beyond

Turbulence is a phenomenon in fluid dynamic systems characterized by the chaotic changes in velocity field. Several examples are there to describe the phenomenon of turbulence including smoke rising from cigarettes, terrestrial atmospheric circulation, jet exhaust from a nozzle and flow over a golf ball. The breakdown of the orderly flow of liquid makes it a difficult subject of study. The study involves people from … Continue reading Kolmogorov Theory of Turbulence and Beyond

Complex States

Complex States of Light

Over the last few years, applied physicists are trying to develop some nanostructured material that can generate new and complex states of light. A recent study made by researchers from Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a new tool to generate, more complex states of light in a completely different way. “We have developed a metasurface which is a … Continue reading Complex States of Light

Picobalance

Picobalance – Weighing Single Cells in Your Body

When was the last time you measured your weight? Were you happy or depressed seeing the result on the scale? It does not matter how your body weight is changing, the cells you are made of are always fluctuating in fast millisecond time-scale (1/1000th of a second) and in tiny ‘picogram’ (10-12 gm) amount. This fluctuation of mass in single cells is the signature of … Continue reading Picobalance – Weighing Single Cells in Your Body

electronic skin

Electronic Skin – Inspired by Jellyfish

The electronic skin is integrated sensing skin capable of sensing touch, chemical, biological and temperature changes or variations built on flexible and stretchable substrates that are biocompatible and also biodegradable powered by stretchable solar cells and batteries. Scientists and researchers across the globe are busy in developing the electronic skin for prosthetics and also for robots. These skins are very sensitive, can detect almost all … Continue reading Electronic Skin – Inspired by Jellyfish

Stress

Your Language Can Tell About Your Body’s Hidden Response to Stress

When you visit your psychologist, a couple of questions you may come across – “How stressed you feel during your daily activities?” “Could you please rate your stress level on a 0-10 scale during different activities?” But answering these questions is very difficult as sometimes we are stressed because we are not aware of the same and sometimes the patients are not in the stage … Continue reading Your Language Can Tell About Your Body’s Hidden Response to Stress

Solar Sunglass

Solar Sunglass – Shades with Solar Power

The generation of a permanent power source using the solar power is rather a difficult task but is not impossible. Recent trends are enhancing their research funds to explore more deeply into the near-term applications of the solar cells apart from using it directly only for power production. Organic solar cells are flexible, transparent, and light-weight and can be manufactured in arbitrary shapes or colors. … Continue reading Solar Sunglass – Shades with Solar Power

Bionic Eye

Bionic Eye: The Future of Vision Impairment

There is nothing more blissful than to see the world with our own eyes. Unfortunately, some of us don’t have the ability to enjoy it. According to a WHO report, an estimated 253 million people live with vision impairment all over the world. Among which 36 million are completely blind and 217 million have moderate to severe vision difficulty. Although organ donation is a possible … Continue reading Bionic Eye: The Future of Vision Impairment

Intelligence

How Machines Gain Intelligence

As time flies we grow older, brain inherits disastrous syndromes, the body cannot act as much it needs to perform and we become dependable. So, the requirement of artificial intelligence or intelligent machines to move our limbs or to perform our daily activities becomes important. On the basis of how this intelligent machines perform work, can be categorized as: (i) Computational psychology – Understanding human … Continue reading How Machines Gain Intelligence

E-Waste

E-Waste And Its Importance for Recycling

One of the best gifts of modern day technology is electronics. It won’t be exaggerated if we consider our lives electronically oriented. Almost everything is electronically controlled or monitored. But serving its purpose for a period of time electronic good has a tendency to become non-functional and also with the rapid growth in the electronics industry, it becomes obsolete quickly. Now the question arises what … Continue reading E-Waste And Its Importance for Recycling

Higgs

Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson

In the 60’s several physicists proposed a mechanism to explain the mass of the most basic building blocks of the Universe. Peter Higgs was one of them and suggested an unstable subatomic particle boson (Higgs Boson) with no spin, electric charge, or color charge responsible for the mass. On July 4, 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider discovered the boson … Continue reading Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson
