Study from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and TIFR demonstrates a method to turn heat into usable spin current
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, find relationship between the number of copies of a particular set of genes and the size of the amoeba viruses that help these viruses to gain easy entry into their host.
In a new study, researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, have designed a biosensor using gold nanoparticles that can identify the presence of a protein called alpha-synuclein. The newly developed biosensor uses optical fibres to identify these proteins even in very low concentrations and can do so in just 15 minutes of time.
Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, develop a highly effective solution for recovering green sand in small and medium foundries.
A team of researchers from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, Netherlands, and the Department of Harbour, Coastal and Offshore engineering, Netherlands have come up with a cost effective and efficient method to measure the depth of shallow water. Combining satellite imagery and echo-sounding data, along with a machine learning technique, the team has produced an economical solution to the depth measurement challenge.
The Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings 2019 were announced on June 6th 2018, which ranked 1000 of the world’s best universities from 85 countries. 24 Indian universities made it into the list, among which Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay , Mumbai emerged as the leader ranking 162 in the world, with an overall score of 48.2/ 100.
Researchers from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai and Cornell University have been reviewing the models and simulations used to study interactions between humans and natural systems. Their study reveals the reason why early prediction of an approaching tipping point of an ecosystem still remains challenging.
The clamour about the warming planet and the changing climate is growing louder by the day as we worry about the implications of greenhouse gases on the earth. But, did you know that our planet has seen many such ‘greenhouse periods’ in the past where the concentrations of greenhouse gases were significantly higher, resulting in higher temperatures? Yes, you read that right, and one such period was about 56 to 34 million years ago, called the Eocene epoch.
Researchers from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai are studying the strange phenomenon known as urban heat islands, which leads to a sharp temperature difference between urban and metropolitan areas and the surrounding rural areas, due to human activities. The study also proposes measures to reduce the dire effects of the phenomenon.
