Silicon-based electronic circuits are getting smaller. The process of manufacturing such ultra-dense circuits is complex. Despite world-class control, there are tiny fluctuations in the nanoscale dimensions. Thus, each transistor is slightly different from another across chips and even on the same chip. A circuit designer must account for such variations to ensure that each of the billions of chips produced works as expected. Thus, a model to account for such nanoscale variations in manufacturing is essential.
Prominent names in the fashion world are now in trouble with the country’s Enforcement Directorate. Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi and Ritu Kumar, have reportedly been summoned to explain why they took cash payments running into lakhs of rupees from a Punjab political leader for designer wedding wear.
Top unionist parties in Jammu and Kashmir are all set to attend the meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, scheduled to be held in New Delhi on Thursday (June 24), but they refuse to abandon their demand for restoration of special status while keeping their expectations low from the “ice-breaking” interface.
Indian researchers have developed a new device that can generate sweat at resting and detect markers and transmit through a mobile phone. This sweat-based non-invasive health diagnosis technology would be an alternative to blood-based invasive diagnosis.
A team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, has developed an advanced technique that can precisely estimate one of the most important battery internal states, known as the SOC (state of charge). SOC reflects the remaining capacity of the battery, i.e., how much more charge can be drawn from the battery before it gets fully discharged.
Muon is the sibling of electron. Discovered by Carl Anderson and Seth Neddermeyer in 1936 while studying cosmic rays, it looks and behaves exactly like electron but heavier. It has the charge of electron and spin is also half.
Washington: Properly fitted multilayer masks block 84 per cent of particles expelled by a person wearing it, while two people donning these types of masks can reduce transmission by close to 96 per cent, according to a new study.
While wearing a face mask can protect people from COVID-19, scientists, including those from Georgia Institute of Technology in t...
Replacing regular common salt consumed by hypertensive patients in rural areas with a salt substitute can have a significant impact in terms of lowering their blood pressure, a new study by The George Institute for Global Health (GIGH) has revealed.
Efforts to find a treatment for mitochondrial disorders is all set to get a major boost with a team of researchers at the Department of Biotechnology’s National Institute of Immunology (DBT-NII) figuring out a way to tackle autosomal dominant progressive external ophthalmoplegia (adPEO), which is a widely prevalent mitochondrial disorder.
A startup initiated by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, has launched an electric scooter which has a running cost of around 20 paisa per kilometer and is found to be best suited for the last mile delivery and personal commute.
2001 FO32, the largest asteroid predicted to pass by Earth will be at its closest on March 21.
The interplanetary interloper which will zip past our planet at a distance of 2 million km with no threat of collision, will provide astronomers a rare opportunity to study the rock which according to NASA may be as ancient as the Milky Way.
Certain strains of E-coli, a bacteria which could cause diarrhea in humans, could pose threats of progression of colorectal cancer. The Indian Express quoted a study done by the researchers at the University of Hyderabad to conclude that 12% of such E-coli variants, mainly of extra-intestinal origin, could be harmful.
A small molecule that disrupts the mechanism through which neurons become dysfunctional with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been developed by a team of scientists led by Prof T. Govindaraju from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR)
Days after its Mars rover - Perseverance - landed on Red Planet's surface, US space agency NASA on Monday released the first video of its landing. It also released the first audio from the planet's surface, which sounded like a faint crackling of the wind, captured by the rover.
In a dramatic discovery, scientists have found the first geological evidence of a huge earthquake in the North Eastern region that had wreaked massive devastation in 1697. The evidence has been found at Himebasti Village, on the border of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, the Ministry of Science & Technology said on Monday (February 8).
In a recently published study in the journal Nature Scientific Reports, it is estimated that there would be a decline of 35% in work performance in the east coast region of India by 2100 due to heat stress caused by extreme heat and humidity
Indian researchers have developed the performance analysis of miniaturized circuitry used in modern devices such as mobile phones and tablets so that the devices may be designed for better performance even under erratic DC power supply
Ever observed the flock of pigeons taking off in a jiffy? Suddenly they take-off helter-skelter but within a flash, they are in a formation. The sudden emergence of spontaneous order is called self-organisation. While the random flight is periodic, the emergence of formation is harmonic
Beijing: A Chinese lunar capsule has returned to Earth with the first fresh samples of rock and debris from the moon in more than 40 years.
The capsule of the Change 5 probe landed in the Siziwang district of the Inner Mongolia region on Thursday, state media reported shortly after 2:00 am (1800 GMT). The capsule earlier separated from its orbiter module...
