Concentrated solar power and solar water heating are promising renewable energy options, but they face challenges in maintaining high absorption while suppressing energy dissipation. However, a team of researchers from Harbin University, Zhejiang University, Changchun Institute of Optics, and the National University of Singapore have developed a solution to this problem.
Chronic diseases are conditions that persist over a long period and often require continuous medical care and management. Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer, are responsible for more than 70% of deaths globally.
Digital health is an ever-evolving field that seeks to improve healthcare outcomes through the use of technology. The digital health revolution has been driven by advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, which have enabled the development of personalized, patient-centric solutions.
Researchers in Australia, an island nation, have successfully split seawater to produce green hydrogen without pre-treatment. An international chemical engineering team, led by the University of Adelaide’s Professor Shizhang Qiao and Associate Professor Yao Zheng, were motivated by the fact that the only thing emitted by hydrogen fuel is water.
In a step towards the next-generation vaccine for Covid-19, researchers at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have used the body’s own immune cells in developing a nano-vaccine unlike current vaccines that use synthetic materials to package and deliver antigens. Researchers said this approach could also be used for various other infectious diseases such as dengue.
Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has developed a new wheat variety which can overcome the challenges arising out due to changes in weather patterns and rising heat levels. This new wheat variety called HD-3385 is amenable to early sowing, escaping the impact of heat spikes and can be harvested before March end.
