10:31 AM | “Metal-Organic Frameworks: A New Class of Crystalline Porous Materials”
“Metal-Organic Frameworks: A New Class of Crystalline Porous Materials” published by Lambert Academic Publishing, 2014, is a book written by Dr Behnam Seyyedi on the emerging porous materials of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The term MOF was coined by Omar Yaghi in 1995 (1). MOFs consist of both organic and inorganic building entities, where the organic ligands, i.e. spacers, are coordinated to the metal ion clusters, i.e. nodes, to create extended frameworks. In some cases, the […]

10:15 AM | 14th Ulm Electrochemical Talks
The Ulm Electrochemical Talks are held annually in Ulm, Germany. The 14th meeting, held from 23rd–26th June, 2014, focused on the topic of “Next Generation Electrochemical Energy Technologies”. Fuel cells and batteries are described as the dominant technologies to deliver the e-mobility vision within the next few decades. This selective review will focus on battery technologies and supercapacitors; although there was also plenty of material on the equally important topic of […]

8:05 AM | Pre-Wedding Drone Video Shoot Goes Hilariously Wrong
Shooting a wedding with a drone is a great idea. Usually. But this pre-wedding video session went a little bit wrong, to say the least. In the words of the drone pilot/wedding videographer himself: “This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought… Read more → The post Pre-Wedding Drone Video Shoot Goes Hilariously Wrong appeared first on UAV Coach.

3:12 AM | My Mom, the research advisor
Do you ever have conversations with your kids where you think, afterwards, something along the lines of, “I can’t believe we had this conversation?” The younger son wants to breed dinosaurs…or at least generate dinosaurs from recovered dinosaur DNA.  He asked me if it was possible to do that, and I told him that I […]

9:55 PM | Sunday Morning Insight: Another Strange PSF in the Wild
Rambus Lensless Smart Sensors are not the only ones with strange PSFs. The Universe also provides a few of those naturally weird PSFs thanks to weak lensing [1]. Here is an instance I spotted thanks to Dan Piponi's G+ feed:A figure from:Multiple Images of a Highly Magnified Supernova Formed by an Early-Type Cluster Galaxy Lens by Patrick L. Kelly (UCB), Steven A. Rodney (JHU), Tommaso Treu (UCLA), Ryan J. Foley (Illinois), Gabriel Brammer (STScI), Kasper B. Schmidt (UCSB), Adi Zitrin (Caltech), […]

6:28 AM | Funny things science bloggers say… #MySciBlog Bloopers
Welcome to the bloopers, or "blogpers," of #MySciBlog research! Below you'll find some of the excerpts from my interviews with science bloggers (or their open-ended responses to #MySciBlog survey) that I found particularly funny, clever, or at least smile-worthy. (And some that border on funny because of their 'reality'). Enjoy! What motivated you to start blogging? SOMEONE IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET! I blog because it's marginally more productive than firing Nerf projectile […]
