News from the world of science and technology

Every day, every moment, are carried out discoveries in the world of science, technology, health, climate change and much more. We will share with you what is happening in our world. We will be passing on a summary of the most important discoveries.

The path towards wealth depends crucially on two words: work and savings. Benjamin Franklin.

Science

Science is defined as the body of knowledge obtained based on a specific method. Science is research, which was later described in an orderly way, providing expertise in a field. It is how to achieve new knowledge, considered valid until there is no rebuttal. This indicates that science is not an unquestionable truth.

Features that identify science: systematic, cumulatively, methodical, interim, verifiably, specialized product of an open and scientific research.

technology

From the Greek Tekne, which means technical, trade, and logos, which means science and knowledge.
The concept Technology covers a wide range of techniques, processes and knowledge, we are used to construct and design objects which are met with a host of needs of human beings.
Consequence of technology is the science and engineering, where many of the advances beyond the concepts outlined.

Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology, shortened to "nanotech", is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures sized between 1 to 100 nanometer in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size. Quantum mechanical effects are very important at this scale.

Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to investigating whether we can directly control matter on the atomic scale.

New tabletop instrument tests electron mobility for next-generation electronics
The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, with facilities in Florida and New Mexico, offers scientists access to enormous machines that create record-setting magnetic fields. The strong magnetic fields help researchers probe the fundamental structure of materials to better understand and manipulate their properties. Yet large-scale facilities like the MagLab are scarce, and scientists must compete with others for valuable time on the machines. Now researchers have built a tabletop instrument that can perform measurements that were only previously possible at large national magnet labs.

Harnessing solar and wind energy in one device could power the 'Internet of Things'
The 'Internet of Things' could make cities 'smarter' by connecting an extensive network of tiny communications devices to make life more efficient. But all these machines will require a lot of energy. Rather than adding to the global reliance on fossil fuels to power the network, researchers say they have a new solution. They report on a single device that harvests wind and solar energy.
