Crude Oil

Oil prices on Monday fell after OPEC (The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) along with Russia decided to battle record-high output in the U.S. Oil costs edged lower on Monday after universal benchmark Brent hit a new five-month high in the past session, yet concerns remain as worldwide supplies suffered losses. Losses were constrained due to fixing supplies globally, as production has fallen in Venezuela and Iran. The U.S.

Nuclear Physics

Researchers have been emphasizing on nuclear symmetry as it is one of the most important parameters in nuclear physics. Working on the same phenomena, researchers in Washington University in St. Louis discovered a novel form of oxygen. This newly discovered element was termed as “featherweight oxygen” as it is the lightest version of oxygen. Oxygen-11 has only 3 neutrons to its protons and it deteriorates right after its formation.

Recycle Lithium-Ion Batteries

Various research institutes in the U.S. are attempting to catch up with China to identify efficient methods to recycle lithium-ion batteries. These countries recycle and manufacture lithium-ion batteries, including those shipped back from the U.S. The U.S. government will lead this technological development. U.S. will recycle lithium-ion batteries from electric vehicles, cellphones, and other sources. As a result, the development will ensure an affordable and reliable supply of essential metal

A New Study Developed a Fabric to Powering Wearable with Body Heat

Wearable biosensors and transmitters have features of the health monitoring. These devices are now ‘creatively miniaturized’, said Trisha Andrew from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Trish Andrew and one of her fellow Linden Allison reported that they have developed a fabric. This fabric can power these wearables such as activity tracker. Earlier, in an online version of the Advanced Materials Technologies, the Allison and Andrew explained the theory. They said

Joining Gun

A team of researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology have created a joining gun. This gun establishes a connection between metal and thermoplastic materials in a few seconds. It has a modular design and can be incorporated into the production process. For example, the production of the gun in the assembly replaces the spot welding gun if mounted on a robot arm. A scientist named Annett
