Technicians at National Berkeley Laboratory have recovered what can be one of the oldest recordings during the life time of Thomas Alva Edison himself. The recording is believed to be 123 year old and the curators of Thomas Edison National Historical Park were unable to play it using conventional means because it is bent from its earlier cylindrical shape.

While we require many advanced hardware items in our day to day lives, most are not aware as to why we use these items for those particular applications. To give you a rough idea, any mechanical item is used because it guarantees a particular operating strength. However for any advanced metal/ tool we used, the yield strength measuring instrument is the same old one, but not any further. Nanovea, an organization with over 20 years of experience in mechanical testing, profilometry,...

Development of prostheses that are controlled by, and that send signals back to, the brain, is now the ultimate aim of researchers at a new US research center. The government’s National Science Foundation yesterday declared an $18.5m (£11.5m) grant to launch the Engineering Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering based at Washington University. Director Yoky Matsuoka, Washington University’s associate professor of computer science and engineering, said, "The centre will work on...

We often hear and practically carry out the servicing of our vehicles day in and day out, yeah nothing new to that, but scientists are now on their way to provide the same maintenance facilities to the satellites as well.



It may not seem true at the first glance but this is what an experiment shuttle Atlantis delivered to the International Space Station...

A research in the journal <em>Science</em> suggests that computers and the internet may be altering the quality of our memory. Psychology experiments showed that when people were presented with difficult questions, they began to think of computers. When volunteers knew that facts would be available on a computer later, they had poor recollection of answers but enhanced recollection of where they were stored....

Graphene is an important material in today's technologies starting from batteries and metamaterials and ending at still undiscovered techniques. Now scientists, taking an important step in uncovering the properties of this curious material, have stumbled upon some facts as to how undoped Graphene acts near "Dirac point" or the valance band.

The research group led by David Siegel points, a graduate student in Berkeley Labs, used a specially prepared Graphene sample called ALS beamline...
