Hybrid energy storage device is as small as it can possibly get The world at large runs on lithium ion batteries. New research at Rice University shows that tiny worlds may soon do the same. The Rice lab of Professor Pulickel Ajayan has packed an entire lithium ion energy storage device into a single nanowire, as reported this month in the American Chemical Society journal Nano Letters. The researchers believe their creation is as small as such devices can possibly get, and could be valuable...

Texas-A new low cost test for acute pancreatitis that gets results much faster than existing tests has been developed by scientists at The University of Texas at Austin. The sensor, which could be produced for as little as a dollar, is built with a 12-cent LED light, aluminum foil, gelatin, milk protein and a few other cheap, easily obtainable materials. The sensor could help prevent damage from acute pancreatitis, which is a sudden inflammation of the pancreas that can lead to severe stomach...

Measuring a fuel cell's overall performance is relatively easy, but measuring its components individually as they work together is a challenge. That's because one of the best experimental techniques for investigating the details of an electrochemical device while it's operating is x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Traditional XPS works only in a vacuum, while fuel cells need gases under pressure to function. Now a team of scientists from the University of Maryland, the U.S. Department...

Unique nanotech structure demonstrates higher speed, capacity and longevity A tiny scaffold-like titanium structure of Nanonets coated with silicon particles could pave the way for faster, lighter and longer-lasting Lithium-ion batteries, according to a team of Boston College chemists who developed the new anode material using nanotechnology. The web-like Nanonets developed in the lab of Boston College Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dunwei Wang offer a unique structural strength, more...

Thomas T. Goldsmith Jr., who helped bring televisions into U.S homes, has died in Lacey, Wash., at the age of 99, his son Judson says. The New York Times said Sunday that by working with scientist Allen B. DuMont, Goldsmith helped create the cathode ray tube used in household televisions starting in the 1930s. Author Alexander Magoun, who wrote Television: The Life Story of a Technology, said DuMont and Goldsmith were responsible for creating full TV displays from basic oscilloscopes. The...

El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCBB:ECPN) reports that the Company's metallurgical R&D initiative involving several large composites drill hole samples of the El Capitan deposit have completed key project milestones. The tin collection fusion procedure was performed on two separate drilling composites in late June, and the subsequent electrolytic parting process was concluded in mid-July. The "anode mud" concentrate was collected, dried, and then subjected to both Scanning Electron...

The energy from sunlight falling on only 9 percent of California's Mojave Desert could power all of the United States' electricity needs if the energy could be efficiently harvested, according to some estimates. Unfortunately, current-generation solar cell technologies are too expensive and inefficient for wide-scale commercial applications.A team of Northwestern University researchers has developed a new anode coating strategy that significantly enhances the efficiency of solar energy power...

A pH meter, typically consisting of a special measuring probe connected to an electronic meter, is an electronic instrument used to measure the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of a liquid. The probe measures pH as the hydrogen ion activity that surrounds a thin-walled glass bulb at its tip. A small voltage is produce by the probe that measures and displays pH units by the meter. The meter circuit displays voltmeter in pH units instead of volts. The circuit of the pH meter consists of operational...

  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
