Research at KCT:
25 Student Research Projects are selected for funding which includes 8 final Year research projects. For the interested students out there, we will be having the next project intake in the month of June.
You all will be aware of the 6 JRF projects for which there was a search for the student researchers. Around 60 students have applied for the process. Research Faculties are selecting the students in their own way. Ré has created a bridge between the Research Faculty and the curious minds of KCT.
The Recruitment has come to the period of Probation. 26 KCTians are selected for the training period of around 40 days. After the Probation the second set of Team Ré will be finalized.
RéBlog has already seen a series of articles on various topics written by our KCTians. It’s the right time to start working on magazines. Ré has published the first issue of the magazine. This magazine contains 6 New articles on health and medicine, space and physics, technology, society and environment and the living world. Find our magazine by clicking the link below.
A Look through the Research around the world
Robot skin senses warm bodies like a snake locating nearby prey
The science behind this technology as simple as a snake locating its warm-blooded prey.
The flexible, transparent coating is made of pectin, is used to detect temperature variations by changes in resistor values using currents of ions rather than electrons, which is picked up by electrodes along the edges and transmitted to a computer. This film can sense a temperature change as small as 10 millikelvin, which is twice as sensitive as human skin. It can even detect a warm body the size of a rabbit from a metre away, says researchers based on their tests.
Brainwaves could act as your password – but not if you’re drunk
Brainwave authentication is one of many biometric security systems. The idea is for a person to authenticate their identity with electroencephalogram (EEG) readings. EEG signatures are unique and are more complex than a standard password, making them difficult to hack.
