Skoltech researchers have leveraged their unique experimental data and expertise in rock modeling to test a theoretical model of rock thermal conductivity commonly used for the search, exploration, and development of oil, gas, and geothermal […]
Hydrogen production takes place using natural gas as the raw material, combined with a very special ceramic membrane. Both hydrogen production and CO2 capture are achieved in a single step, which makes the method highly […]
Using solar panels in the tourism industry in countries like Greece and Cyprus will not only help reduce carbon emissions but also significantly reduce costs, research has found.This article is brought to you by this […]
What’s the best way to get 3D characters in videogames to look real and expressive? Two computer scientists at Université de Montréal have come up with answer: use simple bitmap sketches to make their poses […]
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are promising solar technologies. Although low-cost wet processing has shown advantages in small-area PSC fabrication, the preparation of uniform charge transport layers with thickness of several nanometers from solution for meter-sized […]
Firing bricks and making mortar and cement is very costly, but organic chemists at Flinders University are working on more sustainable alternatives—focusing on building materials made from waste products.This article is brought to you by […]
