Your Engineering Inspiration for Thursday 01 October 2020


For stories that clarify and help decipher developments in engineering and technology, check the Explainers tab on the ENGins front page.

Whether you're interested in how the Nobel Prize-winning exoplanet was found, are interested in over-clocking your Raspberry Pi 4, or would like to get the low-down on brain-training apps, the Explainer tab will keep you informed.

You can turn off customisation using the switch at the top of the page for a wider range of Explainer articles, or hone it down to a specific field—using either your customisation options or the drop-down section menus—for a more tailored selection.

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...
