Tech for retrofitting non-earthquake-resistant buildings can prevent major damage in old settlements

New Delhi, November 04, 2022:Researchers have found a solution for retrofitting old non-earthquake-resistant buildings with a technology that can prevent major damage to such buildings from earthquake without compromising on their strength. The technology called semi-confined unreinforced brick masonry (SC-URBM) can resolve the problem of spread of settlements in earthquake-prone areas with constructions that have […]

Indian scientists develop Overhauser Magnetometer

New Delhi, November 02, 2022: Indian scientists have developed an Overhauser Magnetometer, one of the most accurate magnetometers extensively used by all magnetic observatories around the world, making way for reducing the cost of sampling and sensing experiments essential for geomagnetic sampling. The sensor installed at Alibag Magnetic Observatory (MO) can absolve India’s dependence on […]

New materials developed can help move towards stable LEDs emitting bright light

New Delhi, October 31, 2022: Plasma treatment of some inorganic nano-materials has shown the way towards bright, stable and affordable light-emitting diodes (LEDs) which can be sources of lighting for the future. Cost-efficient and bright light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are commonly desired for general light sources, but attaining desired stability and brightness have been challenges for scientists […]

Indian scientists find efficient way to quantify quantum entanglement in higher dimensional systems

New Delhi, October 21, 2022: Experiments on the quantum entanglement (where several particles behave like a single unit even when they are separated), which received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2022 has seen a major achievement by Indian scientists, who have found a simpler way to quantify the amount of entanglement in higher dimensional systems. […]

Harnessing quantum entanglement for futuristic energy storage technology

New Delhi, October 18, 2022: Experiments with entangled photons, and establishment of pioneering quantum information science that received the Nobel Prize in physics this year, also saw a new theoretical concept by Indian scientists exploring connections between the laws of thermodynamics and Quantum Information Theory (QIT). This new concept could facilitate harnessing quantum entanglement for […]

A drug delivery solution can improve cancer management and treatment

New Delhi, October 13, 2022: A novel site-specific drug delivery method using gold nanoparticles can improve the management and treatment of cancer. There are more than 200 different types of cancers known which are currently being treated through surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Many of these cancers can be cured if detected early and treated […]
