UTSA researchers receive grant to help prevent contaminations in Edwards Aquifer

( University of Texas at San Antonio) Vikram Kapoor, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Drew Johnson, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio, have been awarded a $692,452 funding agreement through the City of San Antonio's Proposition 1 Edwards Aquifer Protection Program to design and implement a way to track fecal bacteria in the Edwards Aquifer so that major contamination can be stopped before it starts.

Breakthrough could launch organic electronics beyond cell phone screens

( Princeton University, Engineering School) A discovery by an international team of researchers from Princeton University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and Humboldt University in Berlin points the way to more widespread use of an advanced technology generally known as organic electronics.

Not an illusion: Clever use of mirrors boosts performance of light-sheet microscope

( Marine Biological Laboratory) Using a simple 'mirror trick' and not-so-simple computational analysis, scientists affiliated with the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have considerably improved the speed, efficiency, and resolution of a light-sheet microscope, with broad applications for enhanced imaging of live cells and embryos.

Argonne to install Comanche system to explore ARM technology for HPC

( DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Argonne National Laboratory is collaborating with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide system software expertise and a development ecosystem for a future high-performance computing (HPC) system based on 64-bit ARM processors.

Caltech and AT&T present quantum networks R&D program at Supercomputing17 in Denver

( INQNET ) The Alliance for Quantum Technologies (AQT), founded by Caltech and AT&T in May 2017 in collaboration with national laboratories and industry partners, is presenting the 'INtelligent Quantum NEtworks & Technologies' (INQNET) research program at Supercomputing 2017 in Denver (Nov. 13-16). 'The consortium will accelerate progress in quantum science and technologies by bringing together the strengths of government, academia, and industry in a basic science R&D framework,' says Shang-Yi Ch'en Professor of Physics Maria Spiropulu of Caltech.

Research shows drones could help crop management take off

( University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture) Initial results of an ongoing study show that aerial imagery produced by multi-spectral sensors as well as less-expensive digital cameras may improve accuracy and efficiency of plant stand assessment in cotton.

Scientific advances can make it easier to recycle plastics

( University of Houston) Researchers report new approaches could dramatically increase the amount of plastic waste that can be successfully recycled.

New computational method provides optimized design of wind up toys

( Association for Computing Machinery) A team of leading computer scientists has developed a novel computational system to aid the design and fabrication of wind-up toys, focusing on automating the intricate interior machinery responsible for the toys' wind-up motion.

Infrared NASA imagery shows development of Tropical Depression 31W

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite provided infrared imagery of the latest tropical cyclone in the South China Sea.

Inner clock: Biologists research the mechanism of an auxiliary clock

( Bielefeld University) In December, the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology will be awarded for the identification of genes that control the inner clock. The honored academics examined fruit flies to determine the biorhythm. Biochemist Professor Dr. Dorothee Staiger of Bielefeld University has been researching the inner clock of plants for 20 years. Her team has now published a new study in the research journal Genome Biology.
