New low-cost iron aluminide coatings can increase corrosion resistance in harsh media to four times of mild steel

New Delhi, May 14, 2022: Scientists have developed low-cost Fe-based intermetallic powders that can be used as a corrosion-resistant coating for materials exposed to harsher environments like high temperature in thermal power plants where oxidation, corrosion, and wear and tear takes place simultaneously. The coatings showed 4 times increased corrosion resistance in the aqueous corrosive media […]

Scientists develop a new model for inferring density inhomogeneity in the solar corona

New Delhi, May 13, 2022: Scientists have developed a new theoretical model to quantify the inhomogeneity in density of solar corona generated by the turbulence in the electrically conducting, magnetized fluid present as plasma in it. The solar corona is an extremely dynamic medium. It is well established from the last few decades that electrically conducting, […]

Researchers find ways for broader design and engineering of reconfigurable magnonic crystals that can transfer information more efficiently than electrons

New Delhi, May 10, 2022: Sometime in the future, magnons may replace electrons as carriers of our thoughts and commands more efficiently. Researchers have found ways for broader design and engineering of reconfigurable functional magnonic crystals, which can show the way for magnon based computing systems and bring about a paradigm shift in computing and communication […]
