The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry Celebrates Li-Ion Battery Research
John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino, winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, come from different places and researched lithium-ion batteries at different times.
Modeling a Double-Tuning-Fork MEMS Gyroscope
Piezoelectric rate gyroscopes and similar MEMS devices offer an affordable way to measure angular velocity in applications such as skid control and rollover detection in automobile systems.
Happy Birthday, Niels Bohr
Niels Bohr’s work in physics started in college, when he solved a surface tension problem for the Academy of Sciences. He went on to work in atomic structure and quantum mechanics.
Happy Birthday, Sir William Ramsay
Argon got its name, which means “lazy”, because it doesn’t react with other elements in air — or seem to do much of anything. The chemist behind this discovery went on to find the noble gases.
