Latest Georgia Institute of Technology Stories
Research has shown that sight, balance, and hearing in humans can be enhanced with the application of â€œwhite noiseâ€, or minute, random interference in the senses and this applies to the sense of touch as well.
In August of 2016, when NASA's Juno Mission begins sending back information about the atmosphere of the planet Jupiter, research done by Georgia Institute of Technology engineers using a 2,400-pound pressure vessel will help scientists understand what the data means.
Taking advantage of the unique properties of zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have demonstrated a new type of piezoelectric resistive switching device in which the write-read access of memory cells is controlled by electromechanical modulation.
Japan's March 11 Tohoku Earthquake is among the strongest ever recorded, and because it struck one of the world's most heavily instrumented seismic zones, this natural disaster is providing scientists with a treasure trove of data on rare magnitude 9 earthquakes.
Using a technique known as thermochemical nanolithography (TCNL), researchers have developed a new way to fabricate nanometer-scale ferroelectric structures directly on flexible plastic substrates that would be unable to withstand the processing temperatures normally required to create such nanostructures.
Many reading tasks require individuals to not only read a document, but also to understand, learn from and retain the information in it.
The Academy is a summer program for the advanced teaching of science and engineering that incorporates and highlight industry experts. Savannah, GA (PRWEB) June 24, 2011 A week long summer camp consisting of engineering seminars and hands-on learning sessions got underway Monday, June 20, 2011 at the Savannah Engineering Academy hosted by Georgia Tech Savannah.
Biologists worldwide subscribe to the healthy herds hypothesis, the idea that predators can keep packs of prey healthy by removing the weak and the sick.
By studying the X-rays emitted when superheated gases plunge into distant and massive black holes, astrophysicists have provided an important test of a long-standing theory that describes the extreme physics occurring when matter spirals into these massive objects.
There isn't a radio-control handset in sight as several small robots roll briskly up the hallways of an office building - working by themselves and communicating only with one another, the vehicles divide up a variety of exploration tasks â€“ and within minutes have transmitted a detailed floor map to humans nearby.
