First organic bipolar transistor developed at the TU Dresden – BIOENGINEER.ORG

The invention of the transistor in 1947 by Shockley, Bardeen and Brattain at Bell Laboratories ushered in the age of microelectronics and revolutionized our lives. First, so-called bipolar transistors were invented, in which negative and positive charge carriers contribute to the current transport, unipolar field effect transistors were only added later. The increasing performance due … Read more

Optical microphone developed by CMU researchers sees sound like never before – BIOENGINEER.ORG

A camera system developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers can see sound vibrations with such precision and detail that it can reconstruct the music of a single instrument in a band or orchestra.

New simulation charts how the early universe developed within seconds of the Big Bang

A new simulation maps the first few seconds after the Big Bang, focusing on what scientists call the intergalactic medium, or the gas and dust between galaxies. A team led by researchers at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC) used machine learning, a type of algorithm in which a computer is trained … Read more

Bionic Arms Developed At U Move Science-Fiction Into The Realm Of Fact – WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – This story may sound like science fiction, but it’s actually reality, and it’s being created in Minnesota. We’ve all seen the images based on fantasy, like Luke Skywalker or the Terminator, of bionic beings. But now, thanks to a few dime-sized chips sitting in the University of Minnesota’s engineering lab, fantasy is … Read more

Penn Medicine developed CAR T cell therapy wins third FDA approval – BIOENGINEER.ORG

PHILADELPHIA – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has expanded its approval for a personalized cellular therapy developed at the University of Pennsylvania’s Abramson Cancer Center, this time for the treatment of adults with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) after two or more lines of systemic therapy. The accelerated approval was granted today … Read more

A Cape Cod science center and one of the world’s largest shipping businesses are collaborating on a project to use robotic buoys to protect a vanishing whale from lethal collisions with ships. A lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution developed the technology, which uses buoys and underwater gliders to record whale sounds in near real … Read more

Researchers have developed a potential super wheat for salty soils – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have developed several new varieties of wheat that tolerate soils with higher salt concentrations. After having mutated a wheat variety from Bangladesh, they now have a wheat with seeds that weigh three times more and that germinate almost twice as often as the original variety. Researchers at the University … Read more
