A novel theoretical framework for a magnetic field tunable radio frequency oscillator has been developed.The proposed device, when realised, would play a major role in the nanoelectronics field, specifically as integrable clocks in futuristic logic circuits.
Breakthrough in chemical analysis of Intrinsically Conducting Polymers (ICPs) enables easier identification of polymers suitable for different prospective applications. Researchers at IIT Bombay have come up with a novel and much simpler method to quantify their charge storage characteristics.
“Can we get a 3D model from 2D X-ray images of a bone from a patient’s body?” asked a top surgeon from Hinduja hospital, who wanted an alternative to the current practice. The OrthoCAD lab’s software can do this within a minute, with atmost two X-ray images.
How safe are gold nanostructures for treating cancer patients? Quite safe now says a research team at IITB. The team has engineered a new gold nanoparticle called Lipos Au NPs that has unprecedented potential to cure cancer in a biologically safe and noninvasive way.
Floods in Mumbai due to heavy rains on 26th July 2005 took a toll of more than 400 lives and resulted in economic loss of over Rs. 5000 crore. The events of that day highlighted the importance of designing constructions for floods. A flood model that can predict the amount of flooding in a region could be of great utility in minimising the damages.
Anybody who migrates to smart phones soon begins to question the smartness of it all. While batteries lasted a fortnight or so in vanilla mobile phones, a smartphone typically empties the battery in less than a day. Carrying those bulky rechargers is a remedy worse than malady. How do you power your smart phone for days when you are nowhere near a power source?
