      Smart Windows

      Smart windows are next-generation windows that control light passage and increase energy efficiency of the room in which they are a fixture without having to block the view that the windows offer. Conventional "Light Control" There is a need to control the light that gets in through windows. For example, clear 'unblocked' windows in the

    • How Do Oil Booms Work?

      How Do Oil Booms Work?

      Oil spills can occur with little to no notice. When a spill does happen, it becomes critical to act quickly to contain the spill in order to mitigate damage to the environment. Oil booms are commonly used in maritime environments as both a reactive action to a spill or as a preventative measure around ships

    • How Do Lasers Work?

      How Do Lasers Work?

      Lasers have revolutionized the way that many devices and machinery work. From CD players to machines that cut metal, lasers play an important part in many daily activities, right under the noses of unaware consumers. Lasers are used in dental drills, tattoo removal, hair replacement, eye surgery, and there is now even a method of

    • Nanopollution


      Nanopollution refers to the waste matter or byproducts of nanoscopic device or material manufacture. Nanoscopic device or material manufacturing processes leave behind nanoparticles (smaller than a billionth of a meter) which can infiltrate the cells of humans, animals and all living organisms that may be unprepared for the influx of artificial particles. A 1941 study

    • How Fiber Optic Lights Work

      How Fiber Optic Lights Work

      Fiber optic lines, which can be as thin as a piece of human hair, are made of strands of glass that are optically pure. They are used to transmit light signals, and have the ability to carry these signals over long distances. How is Light Transmitted Through Fiber Optics? The process by which light is

    • Electromotive Force

      Electromotive Force

      Electromotive force is the electrical potential energy that causes current to flow through a circuit. It results from the difference in charge between two points in a material. This difference is created when an external source such as a battery makes electrons move to both points so that there is an excess at the first

    • Terahertz Radiation

      Terahertz Radiation

      Terahertz radiation is a selection of the electromagnetic wave spectrum that propagates at frequencies regarded as the terahertz band. ‘Radiation physics of energetic waves’ defines the terahertz band as tremendously high frequency. The terahertz band can be applied within the bracket of 300 gigahertz (high frequency microwave) and 3000 gigahertz (long wavelength far infrared light).

    • How Does Sound Travel?

      How Does Sound Travel?

      Sound is characterised as a series of waves that move through a particular medium. A medium is some sort of a subtance–whether it be water, plasma, air, a solid, or anything else–that these waves move through. The waves cause the particles in this substance to vibrate which is how the sound is potentially heard. A

    • Hydronic Air Handlers

      Hydronic Air Handlers

      Hydronic air handlers have become a popular installation for home owners who build a new home or are replacing the HVAC system in an existing one. A hydronic air handler is significantly more fuel efficient, runs quieter, and produces more comfortable heating than a traditional furnace. It does this by providing uniformly heated air, thereby

    • Petabyte


      A petabyte is a measurement unit that describes a piece of information that is equal to 1,000 terabytes or one quadrillion bytes of data. A single petabyte is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes . When a petabyte describes computer memory, it is also used in reference to a corresponding power of 1024. The approved scientific symbol
