Tech Xplore news
It's 7:15 am on a Friday morning, and Jordan wants to download an application to their laptop. They know the app by name, or so they think; they open a new tab in their Internet browser and mistype the app's name. The error ...
As anyone who has ever parked a car in the sun on a hot summer day knows, glass windows are great at letting sunlight in but terrible at allowing heat out.
In recent years, some computer scientists have been exploring the potential of deep-learning techniques for virtually dressing 3D digital versions of humans. Such techniques could have numerous valuable applications, particularly ...
Tech Xplore / Metal-halide perovskite semiconductors can compete with silicon counterparts for solar cells, LEDs
Climate change and its consequences are becoming increasingly obvious, and solar cells that convert the sun's energy into electricity will play a key role in the world's future energy supply.
Tech Xplore / Teaching robots to think like us: Brain cells, electrical impulses steer robot though maze
Can intelligence be taught to robots? Advances in physical reservoir computing, a technology that makes sense of brain signals, could contribute to creating artificial intelligence machines that think like us.
Panasonic has announced to the press that it is ready to show off its new cylindrical 4680 battery (46 millimeters wide and 80 millimeters tall), built specifically to accommodate Tesla electric vehicle (EV) requirements. ...
Tech Xplore / A strategy to directly modulate the second-order optical susceptibility of monolayer molybdenum ditelluride
Nonlinear optics is a research field that explores how intense light interacts with matter. Typically, the optical response of materials is linearly associated with the amplitude of the electric field applied to them. At ...
Tech Xplore / Distributed protocol underpinning cloud computing automatically determined safe and secure
In an important step toward ensuring the protocols that dictate how our networked services operate are safe, secure and running as expected, University of Michigan researchers have automated a technique called formal verification.
As demand for electric vehicle batteries continues to grow, researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a method for predicting how changes to manufacturing processes and materials will impact battery life.
Azobenzene-functionalized liquid crystalline materials can be operated by remote light-stimuli without complicated circuits or parts and thus are attracting great attention in fields such as human interfaces, haptic devices, ...
Tech Xplore / Toyota testing hydrogen combustion engines in race cars
Toyota said Monday it is testing hydrogen combustion engines in race cars as it works toward using the technology in commercial products.
Tech Xplore / What the metaverse is and how it will work
The term "metaverse" seems to be everywhere. Facebook is hiring thousands of engineers in Europe to work on it, while video game companies are outlining their long-term visions for what some consider the next big thing online.
