The rainbow is not just colors – each color of light has its own frequency. The more frequencies you have, the higher the bandwidth for transmitting information.
Researchers have shown how to shuttle lithium ions back and forth into the crystal structure of a quantum material, representing a new avenue for research and potential applications in batteries, 'smart windows' and brain-inspired computers containing artificial synapses.
The same way that yeast yields beer and bread can help hospital lab workers better track their daily radiation exposure, enabling a faster assessment of tissue damage that could lead to cancer.
Purdue startup that plans to use ‘rockoons’ to launch small satellites into space wins $1,500 in Midwest business pitch competition
A Purdue University-affiliated startup that plans to use “rockoons” to open access to space for microsatellite companies won third place in a Midwest business competition.
The incredible amount of genetic diversity in parasites means humans are often infected with multiple strains, which could make infections worse and increase the prevalence of the parasite over time, according to a new study.
A Purdue University study has uncovered mechanisms that lead to stem cell formation and maintenance in plants. The findings may one day allow scientists to manipulate stem cell production to increase biomass that can be used for biofuels or grain yield in plants like corn and soybeans.
