When nuclear fuel is recycled, the process releases radioactive krypton and xenon gases. Naturally occurring uranium in rock contaminates basements with the related gas radon. But now a new porous material called CC3 effectively traps these gases.
Gaberlunzie sees the laser's history getting an airing with the retirement of laser inventor Charles Hard Townes, Professor emeritus of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, who turns 99 on July 28, and has an adoring campus about to throwing him a long-overdue birthday party.
Dr Martin PH Lavery from Glasgow University is awarded one of the seven Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships awarded to engineering researchers whose projects have the potential to bring radical innovation to their fields. His work will focus on a revolution in expanding optical data transmission.
Over the last decade the profusion of digital entertainment technologies with widespread ubiquity of Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G wireless services has driven consumer demand from ever more powerful laptops to highly complex and application rich smart phones and tablets. The impact on the semiconductor industry has drawn an intriguingly good response from the still low profile SureCore.
Since the start of this year, it has felt like Armageddon within the cyber-security arena. Attacks are coming thick and fast, with resultant breaches hitting the headlines. Many experts believe we’ve seen just a glimpse of the potential threat landscape devastation. So, what’s behind the headlines?
Glasgow-based GSS (Gold Standard Simulations) has a multimillion dollar contract to license its complete TCAD/EDA tool suite to GlobalFoundries. The news follows on from the world's largest foundry TSMC also licensing the statistical analysis tools.
In some computer and industrial circles, the name Paderborn immediately conjures up Heinz Nixdorf who in 1964 producied the small computer System 820, that sold successfully to SME businesses. In 1968, Nixdorf bought Wanderer-Werke, incorporated it into Nixdorf Computer AG, head office, Paderborn. Now the city becomes home to a new electronics manufacturing composite entity Periscope GmbH that combines both Selcom and Flextronics.
In the referendum debate Scotland's finance may not seem of such significance to outweigh hearts, souls and history, but for a canny country, bawbees matter. The CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy) believes the public deserve transparent and understandable data on Scotland's finances and the choices that an undefended Scotland would face.
Although nuclear power has been described by some as "a busted flush," Scottish Enterprise is to invest in a project aimed at helping Scottish firms to skill-up and move into the nuclear power industry.
Researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Barcelona Tech (UPC), the Instituto de Química Mèdica (IQM-CSIC) and University of Glasgow have proved that the CD27 drug is a true alternative against malaria. They have analysed the crystalline structure of the DNA with the drug by performing X-ray diffraction experiments at ALBA synchrotron.
£30million funding is announced by Secretary of State for Industry the Rt. Hon Vince Cable MP for two new research packages to develop advanced materials and investigate NDE (non-destructive evaluation). The major Scottish player is Strathclyde University.
As US research into Ormia ochracea a parasitic fly discovers its survival depends on a unique and sophisticated sound processing mechanism, which can be adapted for a generation of hypersensitive hearing aids, UK research shows that bio-acoustic recorders can provide vital additional information to help protect such rare and endangered birds as the European nightjar, the Capercaillie and the wood lark.
Bluesky, creator of the first ever National Tree Map, is working with researchers at the University of Leicester to investigate airborne mapping systems used to identify diseases in trees. UK tree health has been increasingly in the news over recent years, Phytophthora ramorum affecting larch trees, Chalara dieback of ash and the Dothistroma needle blight on pine trees being just some examples.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. shows off the world’s smallest 2-watt wireless power receiver and battery charger, as delivering leading technology in a compact package ideal for small form factors, including wearable applications.
Haydale of South Wales, with a patent pending proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise graphene and other nanomaterials using a dry, low-energy process, avoiding the need to use potentially harsh 'wet' chemicals or acids has announced a major consulting agreement with InVentures Group to accelerate the commercial application of its patent for plasma functionalisation technology in graphene, carbon nanotubes and other high performance nanomaterial systems.xv
The UK Government’s £230 million loan to Ineos, for the Grangemouth Refinery to build a gigantic ethane storage tank to support its planned import of cheap shale gas from America, is being seen as good news for the Grangemouth workforce.
