Battery not needed in ant-sized radios for IoT

A tiny chip could be the missing link between the Internet and the smart gadgets in the Internet of Things. A team of engineers from Stanford University, along with researchers from the University of California, were able to successfully build an that doesn't require batteries because it gathers the power it needs from the same electromagnetic waves that carry signals to its receiving antenna.

Bad fracking wells taint water, scientists find

"People's water has been harmed by drilling," said Robert Jackson, a professor of environmental and earth sciences at Stanford University. "In Texas, we even saw two homes go from clean to contaminated after our sampling began."

Study: Leaky Wells, Not Fracking, Taint Water

This 2012 image provided by Stanford University, shows fracking operations at a wellpad overlying the Marcellus Formation in Pennsylvania. A new study says that the drilling procedure called fracking didn't cause much-publicized cases of tainted water, blaming contamination on leaky natural gas wells instead.

This Ant-Sized Radio Is Powered by the Messages It Receives

In the most ambitious minds, the Internet of Things would deliver a running catalog of data from the complete taxonomy of physical objects. Passing these digital tally marks along will be a huge wireless challenge, and the solution may come from a tiny radio that costs pennies to make and draws power from the information it receives.

Scientists map white matter connections within the human brain

To see, think or feel, the 100 billion neurons in our brain must exchange messages. These are transmitted over some 100 trillion specialized connections, known collectively as the "connectome."

The miniature radio that could link the Internet of Things

A new miniature radio developed by engineers at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley sets new standards for compact communication - it's smaller than an ant, is inexpensive to make, and doesn't require a battery. It could help another wave of devices connect up to "The Internet of Things" and beam data back to the Web .

Fight over World War II-era tank goes to court

A company headed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has filed a lawsuit in the San Francisco Bay Area over a World War II-era German tank it says it paid $2.5 million for, but never received. The Panzer IV tank was part of a fleet of military vehicles amassed by Stanford University-trained engineer Jacques Littlefield.

Tiny Electronic Gadget Joins Forces Between...

Image Caption: An international team led by researchers at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University joined two offbeat carbon molecules -- diamondoids, the square cages at left, and buckyballs, the soccer-ball shapes at right -- to create "buckydiamondoids," center. These hybrid molecules function as rectifiers, conducting electrons in only one direction, and could help pave the way to molecular electronic devices.

Stanford researchers develop ant-sized radio

The tiny radio-on-a-chip gathers all the power it needs from the same electromagnetic waves that carry signals to its receiving antenna. Engineers at Stanford University have developed a tiny radio that's about as big as an ant and that's cheap and small enough that it could help realize the "Internet of things" -- the world of everyday objects that send and receive data via the Internet.

Doctors Writing Poetry

When we think of doctors writing, we tend to picture illegible prescriptions, not lines of poetry. And yet, increasingly, surgeons and neurologists are producing poems, novels, plays and creative nonfiction, in addition to opinion pieces about current medical issues.
