New genus of treeshrew from Ramnagar in Jammu and Kashmir can provide a precise age estimate for the locality

New Delhi, July 06, 2022: Scientists have spotted fossils of a small mammal resembling squirrels called treeshrew belonging to a new genus and species from Ramnagar in Jammu and Kashmir. This treeshrew currently represents the oldest record of fossil tupaiids in the Siwaliks, extending their time range by 2.5–4.0 Million Years in the region and can […]

DST-IISc energy storage platform moves towards enabling fast-charging solid-state batteries

New Delhi, July 01, 2022: Researchers have reported on an innovative interfacial engineering approach to enable fast charge-discharge rates in solid-state lithium metal batteries. They have found that nanoscopic refractory metal layers like Tungsten could improve the performance of these batteries which are crucial for purposes like electrical mobility. Conventional Li-ion batteries employ a graphite anode, […]

Binary super massive black hole discovered in a system which could be site of future gravitational waves detection

New Delhi, June 25, 2022: An international collaboration of astronomers has discovered a binary super massive black hole in a system which will be a strong candidate for future detection of gravitational waves (GWs). Blazar which is super massive black hole (SMBH) feeding on gas in the heart of a very distant galaxy, are among the […]

Newly developed ultrathin heteroprotein film: better alternative to isolated protein films

New Delhi, June 24, 2022: Scientists have developed ultra-thin heteroprotein films with excellent thermal, mechanical and pH stability which can pave the way for expanding applications of thin films in biomedical and food packaging industries. These films are much thinner as compared to the other protein or plastic films. They are soft and thin and […]

Novel experimental framework in fluid dynamics can help in earthquake early warnings

New Delhi, June 23, 2022: Scientists have developed a novel experimental framework in fluid dynamics to describe deformation in disordered soft solids formed by mixing solid grains at significant proportions in a simple liquid which can help in developing early warning systems to minimize damage due to catastrophic events like landslide/earthquake. Granular systems exist all around […]
