  1. Super cheap earth element to advance new battery tech to the industryRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 18, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Most of today's batteries are made up of rare lithium mined from the mountains of South America. If the world depletes this source, then battery production could stagnate.


  2. $1.7 million SBIR grant fast-tracks bone fracture healingRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 17, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    A broken bone is challenging for anyone at any age, but for the elderly it can be life threatening. In fact, the Journal of Internal Medicine reported in 2017 that "one in three adults aged 50 and older die within 12 months" from fracture-related complications following a bone-breaking fall.


  3. Silvaco, Purdue team to bring atomistic TCAD solutions for next generation semiconductorRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 23, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Silvaco Inc., Purdue University and Purdue Research Foundation announced Friday the formation of an innovative partnership aimed at extending Moore's law by modeling and simulating transistors and new memory technologies that approach atomistic scale in next generation semiconductor processes and materials.


  4. Researchers unravel the path of electrical discharges on phenomenally small scalesRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 20, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Predicting gas breakdown in microscale, and smaller, devices is increasingly important to ensure safe operation for miniaturized electronics and to create plasmas for applications in combustion and medicine IMAGE: Innovations on the microscale depend on understanding the behavior of electricity on the smallest of length scales. Scientists have a good grasp of "electrical breakdown, " when electricity jumps across large... view WASHINGTON, D.C., August 21, 2018 -- Innovations in microscale electronics, medicine, combustion and scores of other technologies depend on understanding and predicting the behavior of electricity on the smallest of length scales.


  5. Low bandwidth? Use more colors at onceRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 15, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    IMAGE: New ultrathin nanocavities with embedded silver strips have streamlined color production, and therefore broadened possible bandwidth, for both today's electronics and future photonics. view The rainbow is not just colors - each color of light has its own frequency.


  6. Electronic stickers to streamline large-scale 'internet of things'Read the original story w/Photo

    Jul 15, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    VIDEO: Researchers at Purdue University and the University of Virginia have developed a new fabrication method that makes tiny, thin-film electronic circuits peelable from a surface. view WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.


  7. Silicon provides means to control quantum bits for faster algorithmsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 7, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Quantum bits are now easier to manipulate for devices in quantum computing, thanks to enhanced spin-orbit interaction in silicon. A silicon quantum computer chip has the potential to hold millions of quantum bits, or qubits, for much faster information processing than with the bits of today's computers.


  8. Microwaved plastic increases lithium-sulfur battery lifespanRead the original story w/Photo

    May 8, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Purdue engineers have figured out a way to tackle plastic landfills while also improving batteries - by putting ink-free plastic soaked in sulfur-containing solvent into a microwave, and then into batteries as a carbon scaffold. Lithium-sulfur batteries have been hailed as the next generation of batteries to replace the current lithium ion variety.


  9. Consuming protein supplements with meals may work better for weight controlRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 24, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    A new systematic review of available evidence appearing in Nutrition Reviews indicates that consuming protein supplements with meals may be more effective at promoting weight control than consuming supplements between meals in adults following a resistance training regimen. It is well established that consuming dietary protein proximate to resistance-type exercise sessions promotes a positive net protein balance during post-exercise recovery.


  10. Electrode shape improves neurostimulation for small targetsRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 23, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    A cross-like shape helps the electrodes of implantable neurostimulation devices to deliver more charge to specific areas of the nervous system, possibly prolonging device life span, says research published in March in Scientific Reports . The shape, called "fractal," would be particularly useful for stimulating smaller areas, such as deep brain structures or the retina, since it maximizes perimeter within a smaller surface area - providing the higher resolution needed for restoring bodily functions and potentially enabling neurostimulation devices to last longer in the body without a recharge.


  11. Hurricanes Irma and Maria temporarily altered choruses of land and sea animalsRead the original story

    Feb 14, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Audio recordings of Hurricanes Irma and Maria's passage over Puerto Rico document how the calls of coastal critters changed in response to the deadly storms. The hurricanes caused a major disruption in the acoustic activity of snapping shrimp, a reduction in insect and bird sounds, and potentially an intensification of fish choruses, according to new research presented at the Ocean Sciences Meeting Friday.


  12. Published study reports use of nutritional ketosis with mobile app intervention could reverse Type 2Read the original story w/Photo

    Feb 6, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    A newly published study has shown that an individualized approach to nutritional ketosis , combined with remote monitoring via a mobile application, could sustainably and safely reverse Type 2 diabetes. The study, compiled by San Francisco-based Virta Health, reports that the treatment could also improve other chronic metabolic diseases without medication or surgery intervention.


  13. Portland State University joins nationwide program to develop brain-inspired computingRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 5, 2018 | EurekAlert!

    Portland State University will join seven other universities in forming a research center for brain-inspired computing - a set of technologies that has the potential to enable computers to do tasks that, as of now, are uniquely human. The center will be headed by Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., but will include Portland State as well as Arizona State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Southern California.


  14. AGU Fall Meeting: New simulations suggest meteors explode from the insideRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 10, 2017 | EurekAlert!

    New simulations of falling meteors suggest air particles penetrate the space rocks' porous interiors as they careen through the atmosphere. These air particles create pockets of high pressure that ultimately lead the rock to explode from the inside, tens of kilometers above the Earth.


  15. On Target Laboratories secures $40 million financing led by Johnson & Johnson InnovationRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 1, 2017 | EurekAlert!
