The race to improve rechargeable lithium ion battery technology is heating up with new research recently published in Nature Energy.1 The new research describes a novel battery design which incorporates a silicon nanolayer into the graphite core of high energy density […]
LED displays are everywhere, and it’s time that they made a major technological leap forward. Image Source: Flickr User Bosc D’Anjou Researchers may have new ways to improve LED screens by creating a new bilayer material out of atomically thin layers of flexible, stretchable and compressible materials. This innovation promises […]
Pumpjacks may be a familiar site if you grew up in oil country, but things have changed a lot in the oil and gas industry. Image Source: Flickr User Barta IV, Photographer As oil and gas industry technology advances, so do the means by which manufacturers work to preserve the […]
Magnets have more technological applications beyond keeping art on your fridge and magnetics for tech need upgrading. Image Source: Flickr User sarnil Magnets, superconductors and semiconductors are a part of everyday life. They are contained within electronics and are a crucial component of technology. Over the past couple of decades, […]
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is on the verge of making a breakthrough in the global energy markets over the next day, so more American companies than ever are undertaking expansion efforts. Image Credit: Flickr user Jnzl When it comes to the energy market in the United States, natural gas is […]
This intestinal organoid is one of many organoids that may be used for research use, and, hopefully in the future, clinical use.

Research management technologies enable researchers to organize and leverage critical data in order to decide whether to transport crude oil from a particular well by pipeline, truck, rail or boat.
In order to take full advantage of the power of machine learning, researchers at oil and gas companies need to be able to work with many large datasets from multiple research departments, and it can be tough to keep it all in order using traditional paper notebooks.
