Lighting Up Cancer Cells to Identify Low Concentrations of Diseased Cells

Aug. 20, 2015 — Researchers have developed tiny nanocrystals that could be used in the next generation of medical imaging technologies to light up cancer ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Highly efficient, light-emitting diodes could slash the world's electricity consumption. They are already sold in stores, but are expensive, and many of them give off 'harsh' light. ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Finding a technology to shift carbon dioxide, the most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity has long been a dream. Now, a team of chemists says ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Hydrogen sulfide becomes superconductive at minus 70 degree Celsius -- when the substance is placed under a pressure of 1.5 million bar -- researchers have observed. This corresponds to half of the ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — Researchers have demonstrated for the first time a new laser cooling method, based upon the interference of matter waves, that could be used to cool ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — Scientists have devised a unique technology for creating microdroplets suitable for portable automatic analytical devices in various fields from internal security to environmental monitoring and ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — For the first time ever, researchers have succeeded in creating arrangements of colloids – tiny particles suspended in a solution – and, importantly, they have managed to control their motion ... read more

Solar Cell Efficiency Could Double With Novel 'Green' Antenna

Aug. 18, 2015 — The use of solar energy in the US is growing, but panels on rooftops are still a rare sight. They cost thousands of dollars, and homeowners don't recoup costs for years. But scientists may have ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — New research findings contradict a fundamental assumption about the functioning of 'organic' solar cells made of low-cost plastics, suggesting a new strategy for creating inexpensive solar ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — A snake moves without legs by the scales on its belly gripping the ground. It generates friction at the points needed to move forwards only and prevents its scales from being worn off by too much ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — A surprising discovery has been made about hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells. Contrary to expectations, a diode composed of the conductive organic PEDOT:PSS and an n-type silicon absorber material ... read more

Glass Paint Could Keep Metal Roofs and Other Structures Cool Even on Sunny Days

Aug. 16, 2015 — Sunlight can be brutal. It wears down even the strongest structures, including rooftops and naval ships, and it heats up metal slides and bleachers until they're too hot to use. To fend off ... read more

Eliminating Water-Borne Bacteria With Pages from The Drinkable Book Could Save Lives

Aug. 16, 2015 — Human consumption of bacterially contaminated water causes millions of deaths each year throughout the world -- primarily among children. An inexpensive, simple and easily transportable ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Researchers used their “Campanile” nano-optical probe to make some surprising discoveries about molybdenum disulfide, a member of the “transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) semiconductor ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Using a method they invented for joining disparate elemental layers into a stable material with uniform, predictable properties, researchers are testing an array of new combinations that may vastly ... read more

Aug. 14, 2015 — Researchers have developed a model system for so-called soft colloids. The model gives us a better understanding of correlations between the atomic structure of colloids and their perceptible ... read more
