ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Thursday 01 October 2020

As well as curating stories from many sources, we categorise those stories in a couple of different ways. We make sure that every relevant tag is included (so that the right stories show up in your customised feed) and we also categorise by article type.

For example, if you select the Education tab in the Articles feed from the ENGins front page, you can read about the space clarinet designed by a 10-year old, the gender gap in science exams disappearing for longer tests, and the impact that the exodus of AI professors from universities to industry has had on students.

As always, the stories you're delivered will depend on your customisation preferences. But seeing news stories from all sectors is easy – simply turn off customisation using the switch at the top of the page.

Very best,

Salt crystal grows legs to avoid slippery surface
28th September 2020 - Listed in:
Salt crystals can grow tiny legs to lift themselves away from certain hydrophobic surfaces, chemists from the Netherlands were surprised to find. This self-lifting behaviour could have implications for designing building materials that avoid damaging salt crystal growth. White salt...
Stability problems with basic reagents used to make carbon–carbon bonds could be creating inconsistent reaction outcomes across the world, US researchers have discovered. Scientists at Scripps Research in La Jolla and Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) in New Brunswick have shown...
Researchers in South Korea and the US have borrowed a strategy traditionally used in photovoltaic devices to enhance a battery concept that generates an electric current from beta particles. The team behind the work say it is a step towards...
Researchers at CRANN and the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland have discovered that a novel material can act as a super-fast magnetic switch. When struck by successive ultra-short laser pulses, this material exhibits ‘toggle switching’, which...
Airbus is forecasting the first zero-emission commercial aircraft will take to the skies by 2035 as it unveiled computer-generated images of hydrogen-powered planes that could pave the way for a carbon-free future. The European aerospace manufacturer on Monday released images...
