New System Makes It Harder to Track Bitcoin Transactions
Researchers have developed a system that could make it significantly more difficult for observers to identify or track the parties involved in any given Bitcoin transaction.
Dynamics of the Unconscious Brain Under General Anesthesia
MIT professor of medical engineering and computational neurosciences Emery Brown will lead a discussion called “The Dynamics of the Unconscious Brain Under General Anesthesia" on Thursday, Feb. 9, at the Duke Energy Hall at Hunt Library.
Paper Spotlights Key Flaw in Widely Used Radioisotope Dating Technique
An oversight in a radioisotope dating technique used to date everything from meteorites to geologic samples means that scientists have likely overestimated the age of many samples.
Researchers Develop Wearable, Low-Cost Sensor to Measure Skin Hydration
NC State researchers have developed a wearable, wireless sensor that can monitor a person’s skin hydration for use in applications that need to detect dehydration before it poses a health problem.
Advanced Biomass Cookstoves Provide Benefits in Field Settings, But Less than Expected from Lab Testing
Researchers find that while advanced wood-burning cookstoves can provide benefits to the environment, the benefits are less than expected due to higher emissions measured in the field compared to laboratory settings.
NC State Hosts NSF Big Data Research Center
NC State University has been selected as a new site of the existing Center for Hybrid Multicore Productivity Research.
New Findings Boost Promise of Molybdenum Sulfide for Hydrogen Catalysis
Researchers have found that molybdenum sulfide (MoS2) holds more promise than previously thought as a catalyst for producing hydrogen to use as a clean energy source. Specifically, the researchers found that the entire surface of MoS2 can be used as a catalyst, not just the edges of the material.
Smart Patch Releases Blood Thinners As Needed, Prevents Thrombosis in Animal Model
A new smart patch that releases blood thinners as needed successfully prevents thrombosis in animal models.
Tech Would Use Drones and Insect Biobots to Map Disaster Areas
NC State researchers have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas – such as collapsed buildings after a disaster.
