From June 2000 to August 2005, Technology Research News provided detailed, original reporting on emerging technologies ranging from nanotechnology to quantum computing. From September 2005 to February 2009, TRN provided regular news briefs and blog posts. Look through the archive and you’ll find stories about technologies that quickly became widespread, like High Dynamic Range photography, technologies that are steadily progressing, like nanoparticle-based cancer treatments, and technologies that remain firmly in the realm of laboratory research, like quantum computers. You'll also find Q&A's with some of the world's leading researchers, including Jon Kleinberg, John Pendry and Nadrian Seeman. And you'll find How It Works features explaining technologies such as robot navigation, self-assembly and quantum computing. Technology Research News Technology Research News

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le prix Ig Nobel (qui peut être prononcé Ignobel, car nommé ainsi par jeu de mots entre « prix Nobel » et l'adjectif « ignoble ») est un prix parodique décerné à des personnes dont les « découvertes » ou les « accomplissements » peuvent apparaître bizarres, drôles ou absurdes. Parfois dépréciatifs et critiques, les prix sont destinés à célébrer l'insolite, honorer l'imagination et stimuler l'intérêt dans les sciences, la médecine, et la technologie.

GE Global Research today presented new research findings on its nanotextured anti-icing surfaces. In addition to dramatically reducing ice adhesion, these surfaces now have been shown to significantly delay the onset of ice formation in simulated atmospheric icing conditions. The team’s findings were presented at the APS’ 2012 March Meeting. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated 25 million gallons of de-icing agents are applied to aircraft taking off from U.S. commercial airports each year. In addition, airlines have robust energy intensive heating systems on board to prevent ice formation on airplanes. Compared to standard surfaces, where ice would form almost immediately without the use of these systems, GE’s nano-enabled anti-icing surfaces would delay ice formation for more than a minute on their own.
