Indium-gallium-zinc oxide ceramics are used as the backplane for flat-panel displays, this was made possible through substantial synergistic contributions coming from the powerhouse that is Japan. A team of researchers from Japan reports the synthesis of centimeter-scale single crystals of a particular type of these semiconductors, InGaZnO4 (IGZO-11), with attractive characteristics such as wide band gap and high electrical mobility and conductivity, which make it promising candidates for transparent optoelectronic devices like touchable displays and organic LEDs.
Participants in research are motivated by learning, teaching opportunities.
An analysis of US intelligence programs aimed at collaborating with academic and industry partners finds that these collaborations are valuable for addressing complex intelligence challenges. The study also notes that institutional silos, lack of information sharing and lack of trust are obstacles to getting the most out of these collaborative efforts.
A new study in the Journal of Marketing finds that companies can improve consumer adoption and accelerate product takeoff of cocreated innovations through a novel communication strategy that creates inconsistency or a mismatch between the creator's and the company's messages.
A new blood test could become clinical practice within five years, reducing the need for a liver biopsy in the management of pediatric non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), as a major new international pediatric liver registry collaboration yields early results.
Archaeologists have discovered 15 new sites in Laos containing more than one hundred 1,000-year-old massive stone jars possibly used for the dead.
In an increasingly connected world it helps to engage with other cultures without prejudice or assumption. This is true in engineering as it is in any other field, but UTokyo researchers reveal shortcomings in how intercultural communication is taught to potential engineers.
Scientific research usually takes months to be published by academic journals, and once it is, many of the papers can only be read by scientists from wealthy institutes that subscribe to the journals. Over the years, there have been various attempts to make research more widely available, but most papers remain behind paywalls and scientists complain that the peer review process at journals now takes longer than ever.
SU2C supported researchers will present work on pediatric brain tumors, cfDNA for early cancer detection, dual blockade of CTLA-4 and PD-1 in mCRC, cancer interception of pancreatic and lung cancers, machine learning RECIST in RWE study of lung cancer, and molecular markers of response to neoadjuvant nivolumab in resectable NSCLC.
A collaborative study led by archaeologists, geneticists and museum curators is providing answers to previously unsolved questions about life in sub-Saharan Africa thousands of years ago.
