Astronomers see atomic hydrogen emission in galaxies at record breaking distances

They uncovered a population of very gas-rich systems, containing between 20 and 80 billion times the mass of the Sun in atomic gas. Such systems are rare, but astronomers believe that they were more common in the past, when the Universe was younger

Galaxy Evolution: Caught in the Act

An international team of astronomers have uncovered new insights into the processes that have shaped galaxies, using

Primordial galaxy bursts with starry births

In the early universe, starburst galaxies like AzTEC-3 formed stars at a frenetic pace, fueled by the copious quantities of material they devoured and by merging with other adolescent galaxies. Over billions of years, according to the

Mars spacecraft, including MAVEN, reveal comet flyby effects on Martian atmosphere

Using the observations, scientists were able to make a direct connection between the input of debris from the meteor shower to the subsequent formation of the transient layer of ions – the first time such an event has been observed on any planet, including Earth, said the MAVEN research

Researchers Find New Way to Move Atomically Thin Semiconductors for Use in Extremely Flexible Devices

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new way to transfer thin semiconductor films, which are only one atom thick, onto arbitrary substrates, paving the way for flexible computing or

Running the color gamut

If LCD TVs start getting much more colorful — and energy-efficient — in the next few years, it will probably be thanks to MIT spinout QD Vision, a pioneer of quantum-dot television displays. Quantum dots are light-emitting semiconductor nanocrystals that can be

NTU engineers develop innovative process to print flexible electronic circuits

Nanyang Technological University has successfully printed complex electronic circuits using a common t-shirt printer. The electronic circuits are printed using unique materials in

Researchers find a new route to high-performance solid state batteries

Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark and two Dutch universities have discovered a new material which is a surprisingly good conductor of lithium ions at room temperature. This could lead to all-solid-state batteries with better durability, lower weight and higher safety than present-day lithium ion batteries
