• Physical
  • In collaboration with Le Laboratoire in Paris and The Dalai Lama Center at MIT, we are exploring the hypothesis that the singing voice can influence mental and physical health through physicochemical phenomena and in ways consistent with contemplative practices. (mit.edu)
  • particles
  • Stable colloidal suspensions can be generated by immobilizing a dense brush of soluble polymer at the colloidal surface, creating a zone protected against the adhesion of approaching particles, a phenomenon termed polymeric steric stabilization. (epfl.ch)
  • water
  • A research team led by Hyoungsoo Kim, a professor of Mechanical Engineering at KAIST, succeeded in quantifying the phenomenon called, the Marangoni effect, which occurs at the interface between alcohol and water. (kaist.ac.kr)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Water-soluble copolymers were produced that can block recognition at biological surfaces, on the basis of nonspecific physicochemical phenomena rather than specific biochemical interactions. (epfl.ch)
  • week earlier
  • This paradigm-altering discovery (together with G. S. Landsberg) had occurred at the Moscow State University just one week earlier than a parallel discovery of the same phenomena by C. V. Raman and K. S. Krishnan. (wikipedia.org)
