Researchers at Raman Research Institute, Bengaluru, are exploring the properties of single walled carbon nanotube (CNT) immersed in aqueous triblock copolymer solution. The newly formed CNT-polymer hybrid could replace the use of carbon nanotubes by itself, thanks to its remarkable mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.

Researchers at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB), Mumbai, have developed a new minimum opportunity cost targeting algorithm (MOCTA) to help organizations and institutions select the right environmental and conservation projects to pursue.
Researchers from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) University, Vellore in Tamil Nadu, have synthesized novel compound made of lead sulphide quantum dots coated with anti-oxidants or vitamins, which could aid in live imaging cells.
Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and the Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon, have devised a new way to automatically differentiate between inner and outer breast tissue using Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI in breast cancer patients.
Researchers from Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India, and Northumbria University, UK are studying relay-assisted visible light communications to improve the indoor coverage of mobile network connectivity. Their new technique turns mobile phones into relays, forwarding data from the transmitter to the end user.
A team of researchers from University of Aberdeen, UK, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, People’s Republic of China, and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai have looked at the effects of availability of a smartphone based real time passenger information system on a passenger’s willingness to use public transport. Their studies reveal that although there was an initial excitement for the app, there were insufficient users required to scale up.
Genetically Modified Crops are those whose genetic makeup has been altered by introducing a foreign gene into its system. This is a popular technique to get the best of both worlds; we retain the desirable traits of the original plant and introduce new beneficial traits from other plants.
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, use magnetic fields to navigate nanomotors in cells.
