Room-Temperature Lithium Metal Battery Closer to Reality

Feb. 10, 2016 — Rechargeable lithium metal batteries offer energy storage capabilities far superior to today’s workhorse lithium-ion technology that powers our smartphones and laptops. But these batteries are not ... read more

Precise Visualization of Myocardial Injury

Feb. 10, 2016 — In a world-first, researchers have performed cardiac MRI imaging using a 7T MRI scanner in a patient-based study. 7T MRI imaging is a powerful new technology that allows high resolution images of the ... read more

Chemical Cages: New Technique Advances Synthetic Biology

Feb. 10, 2016 — A clever means of localizing and confining enzymes and the substrate molecules they bind with has been presented by researchers, speeding up reactions essential for life ... read more

Feb. 8, 2016 — The interaction of thermal energy from the environment with motional degrees of freedom is well known and often referred to as Brownian motion (also thermal motion). But in the case of polar ... read more

Feb. 8, 2016 — A new study sheds light on unique property of 2-D materials -- ability to shield chemical interactions at the molecular level. Discovery of shielding effect allows scientists to control reactivity of ... read more

Removal of Complex Renal Tumors Performed Safely by Robotic Surgery in Selected Patients

Feb. 8, 2016 — Renal cell carcinoma can sometimes spread to the inferior vena cava (IVC), the body's largest vein, posing a threat to the heart and brain. Robotic nephrectomy for inferior vena cava tumor ... read more

Feb. 8, 2016 — Researchers have developed a technique to implement silicon large-scale integration chips in a very thin film of thickness. This fabrication method has the potential to realize a low-invasive ... read more

Biophysics: Partitioning by Collision

Feb. 5, 2016 — An ensemble consisting of a binary mixture of particles of equal size can partition itself into its component fractions – provided that the two species differ in their diffusion ... read more

Feb. 5, 2016 — Cells are not uniform spheres; they generally come in a variety of disparate shapes. In the broadest sense, this variation in shapes is known as cell polarity, and it is an essential property for a ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — The material at the heart of the lithium ion batteries that power electric vehicles, laptop computers and smartphones has been shown to impair a key soil bacterium. The study is an early signal that ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — Scientists have for the first time reengineered a building block of a geometric nanocompartment that occurs naturally in bacteria to give it a new ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — Using bundled strands of DNA to build Tinkertoy-like tetrahedral cages, scientists have devised a way to trap and arrange nanoparticles in a way that mimics the crystalline structure of diamond. The ... read more

Smart Contact Lens Helps Predict Disease Progression in Glaucoma Patients

Feb. 4, 2016 — A contact lens with a built-in sensor could help determine which glaucoma patients have a higher risk of disease progression, according to a new study. Researchers found certain patterns of ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — Scientists have discovered a new option to control properties of the interface between the two layers, for instance the amount of charge transferred from one layer to the other or the emergence of ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — It is possible to design and construct interfaces between materials with different structures by making a bridge between them, scientists have ... read more

Feb. 4, 2016 — A process has been uncovered by researchers that uses pressure to deliver chemical probes in a fine-tuned manner into living ... read more
