Apr. 22, 2015 — As computers continue to shrink -- moving from desks and laps to hands and wrists -- memory has to become smaller, stable and more energy conscious. A group of researchers is trying to do just that ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Researchers have discovered that electron spin brings a previously unknown degree of order to the high entropy alloy nickel iron chromium cobalt -- and may play a role in giving the alloy its ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Engineers and a pediatric surgeon have joined forces to discover that physical forces like pressure and tension affect the development of limbs in embryos -- research that could someday be used to ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Enzymes, the micro machines in our cells, can evolve to perform new tasks when confronted with novel situations. But what if you want an enzyme to do an entirely different job -- one that it would ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A stable bulk material shows the same physics found in graphene, which illuminated the interactions of electron’s orbital motion and its intrinsic magnetic orientation. The new material will be a ... read more

Technology Could Let Women Skip Annual Mammograms

Apr. 21, 2015 — Developing technology is on track to predict if and when breast cancer will appear. "We're creating a breast cancer risk analysis system," said an electrical engineer on the study. ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A new semiconducting material that is only three atomic layers thick exhibits electronic properties beyond traditional semiconductors. Two nano-engineered configurations of the material have shown an ... read more
