Biomedical researchers at Columbia University have developed a convenient, easy-to-use, and relatively inexpensive smartphone attachment that could revolutionize HIV and syphilis detection for previously unscreened populations.
Cracking Down on Infrastructure: Self-powered sensors revolutionize infrastructure monitoring and more
In order to detect and diagnose constructional failures in infrastructure, Shantanu Chakrabartty from Michigan State University has developed a new self-powered sensor that can sense, compute, and store data of mechanical processes without the aid of an external power source.
With mechanical failure, physical damage, and format obsolescence threatening devices from CDs to servers, we cannot count on the digital storage media that we use today to last forever. Robert Grass has discovered a more durable way to store digital information: by encoding it in silica-covered molecules of DNA.
A new micro-technology combats a macro-problem — global warming, as fueled by astonishing rates of carbon dioxide emissions.
Researchers in electrical engineering and computer science have found that the familiar and unassuming smartphone is a potent weapon for hacking computer hard drives and servers.
Rocket recovery could confer tremendous benefits on the cost and feasibility of space travel. SpaceX, a company with a goal of making private space travel a possibility, has been experimenting with technology for reusable booster rockets.
A look at the past and future of Science on Saturdays, one of Yale Scientific Magazine’s most popular outreach events.
Surgeons in Australia have successfully performed heart transplants using “dead” hearts. The surgeons have been able to revive these hearts using a “heart-in-the-box” device.
From ideas to reality, students at Yale are changing the way small intestine transplant procedures are performed.
Shuji Nakamura, Isamu Akasaki, and Hiroshi Amano won the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics for their invention of blue LED. What makes this invention note-worthy?
