New device records minute temperature changes 15.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
A team of researchers has developed a new device to record minute temperature changes. The Tokyo Institute of Technology researchers developed a micrometer-wide thermometer that is sensitive to heat generated by optical and electron beams and can measure small and rapid temperature changes in real time. This new device can be used to explore heat transport on the micro- and nano-scales, and in optical microscopy and synchrotron radiation experiments. This technology could be applied in photo-thermal cancer treatment as well as in advanced research on crystals, optical light harvesting. Moreover, a miniaturised thermal microscopy system with a nanoscale heat source and detector is essential for future development of next-generation transistors that will be employed in designing new nanoscale devices. A thermocouple, which is an electrical device consisting of two dissimilar electrical conductors forming electrical junctions at differing temperatures, produces a temperature-dependent voltage, which can be ...

Prepare comprehensive plan for recharge of groundwater: NGT to DJB 14.5.2018 General News
The National Green Tribunal has directed the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) to prepare a comprehensive plan for groundwater recharge, besides asking authorities to take expeditious action against illegal borewells which had led to serious depletion of water levels in the city. A bench headed by acting NGT Chairperson Justice Jawad Rahim directed the DJB, which supplies water to the city, to file a detailed affidavit in this regard before May 23. The tribunal also pulled up the city government and the DJB over illegal borewells and directed the authorities to take speedy action against the violators. "The senior counsel H S Phoolka submits that taking into consideration all attending circumstances, it is desirable to direct the NCT Delhi and DJB to place before the tribunal whether they have prepared any project or comprehensive plan for recharge of groundwater. "The counsel for Delhi government submits as far as the Delhi is concerned, if DJB has prepared any such plan it may be forwarded to ..

Micro-thermometer can record tiny temperature changes 14.5.2018 General News
Scientists have developed a micrometer-wide thermometer that can measure tiny amounts of heat generated by light electron beams in real time. The device can be applied in photo-thermal cancer treatment as well as in advanced research on crystals, optical light harvesting, etc. The miniaturised system with a nanoscale heat source and detector is essential for future development of next-generation transistors that will be employed in designing new nanoscale devices. The device developed by scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan consists of a gold and nickel thermocouple on a silicon nitride membrane and is miniaturised to the extent that the electrodes are only 2.5 micrometres wide and the membrane is just 30 nanometres thick. A thermocouple is an electrical device consisting of two dissimilar electrical conductors forming electrical junctions at differing temperatures. It produces a temperature-dependent voltage, which can be interpreted to measure temperature. For such a

Water harvesting will protect Gujarat: Rupani 11.5.2018 General News
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has launched a campaign to conserve water in his state. Called the 'Sujalam Sufalam Jal Abhiyan', this water conservation drive was started on May 1 and will continue till May 31.Around 1,300 reservoirs are set to be distilled and 34 rivers will be cleaned during this month-long drive.Rupani also said that it is the biggest water conservation drive that India has ever witnessed and added that it will help to tackle the shortage of water for irrigation and drinking purposes in the state.Rupani said that his government is securing Gujarat's future through this water accumulation campaign.He also accused the opposition Congress party of making false allegations.Prior to this, Leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani said he is ready to resign from the state assembly if his charge that the Sauri dam being built by the BJP government could not be found turns out to be untrue.Dhanani, according to local media reports, has accused all BJP government ...
