Strachan UltrafastSimulations provide new insight into emerging nanoelectronic device

Researchers have used an advanced model to simulate in unprecedented detail the workings of 'resistance-switching cells' that might replace conventional memory for electronics applications, with the potential to bring faster and higher capacity computer memory while consuming less energy.


Pol frictionSub-micrometer carbon spheres reduce engine friction as oil additive

Tiny, perfectly smooth carbon spheres added to motor oil have been shown to reduce friction and wear typically seen in engines by as much as 25 percent, suggesting a similar enhancement in fuel economy.


Stuart flyGenome reveals how Hessian fly causes galls in wheat

A team of researchers from 26 institutions around the world has sequenced the Hessian fly genome, shedding light on how the insect creates growth-stunting galls in wheat.


Economic models provide insights into global sustainability challenges

Using models that blend global economics, geography, ecology and environmental sciences is essential to understanding how changes in trade and natural systems in one part of the world affect those in another, a review concludes.


Timothy FisherIndustry joins research effort related to dynamic energy systems

Purdue University has formed an industry research consortium as part of a national center to create temperature-control technologies for dynamic energy systems on aerospace vehicles.


SmeltCauses of Great Lakes smelt population decline are complex

The reasons for the dwindling population of smelt prey fish in the Great Lakes to near historic lows are more complicated than previously believed, new research from Purdue University and collaborators suggests.
