Investigating gravity waves and infrasound in the ionosphere

The Earth’s ionosphere provides a crucial barrier between the lower atmosphere and outer space – yet relatively little is known about how the complex dynamics of this layer are influenced by low-frequency atmospheric waves, generated close to Earth’s surface. In his research, Dr Jaroslav Chum at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics in Prague uses advanced observation techniques to investigate the […]

Unravelling the Mysteries of Deep-Blue Luminescence

deep-blue luminescence

Some molecules glow as brilliantly as fireflies through a process known as luminescence. Different molecules can emit different colours of light, including red, green, and blue. However, not all colours are as easy to generate as others. Dr Masahito Oh-e at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, together with his collaborator Dr Akira Nagasawa, Professor Emeritus of Saitama University in Japan, […]

Improving children’s attention with focus training and meditation

A group of school children are taught focus training

The widespread use of increasingly sophisticated electronic devices and the vast amount of information accessible through these devices has been linked to a decline in people’s ability to pay attention to a single task or stimulus for prolonged periods of time. This might be particularly true for children who grew up in the digital era, as a growing number of […]

Social context shapes age-crime distributions

Social context shapes age-crime distributions

Professors Steffensmeier, Lu and Na present evidence from diverse societies with vastly different sociocultural practices and beliefs, which show clear differences in age-crime relationships. These differences are discussed with reference to the social contexts which appear to protect adolescents from becoming involved in crime. These researchers put forward a research agenda for better understanding nations where crime is most heavily […]

Physics of degradation: the difference between reliability engineering and reliability science

Prof Tan conducted research into LEDs and semiconductors.

Quality and reliability are key factors for a product’s commercial success. Reliability testing usually occurs at the final product, using destructive methods. This implies that there might be added costs and delays if reliability tests fail. Looking at reliability sciences from the physics of degradation and the identification of degradation mechanisms, Prof Cher Ming Tan from the Research Center on […]

The effects of workplace norms on women’s work behaviour in Japan

The effects of workplace norms on women’s work behaviour in Japan

Professor Eriko Teramura from the Meikai University Faculty of Economics is a Japanese social scientist who specialises in human resource management and gender theory. Her current research centres around the workplace culture of Japan and the practices specific to Japanese companies that may be affecting the employment of women and their decisions to start a family. Using empirical analysis, Professor […]
