Feb. 4, 2016 — Diabetes patients traditionally monitor their daily blood glucose levels by using a conventional meter which requires blood sampling from the finger tips. The discomfort of pain and risk of infection ... read more

Feb. 3, 2016 — Scientists have grown organic crystals that allow creating flexible electronic ... read more

Feb. 3, 2016 — California is committed to 33 percent energy from renewable resources by 2020. With that deadline fast approaching, researchers across the state are busy exploring options. Solar energy is attractive ... read more

Feb. 2, 2016 — Scientists have now presented the smallest human-made lattice structure. Its struts and braces are made of glassy carbon. They are smaller than comparable metamaterials by a factor of five. The small ... read more

Feb. 2, 2016 — The next generation of electronics, as well as ultra-sensitive medical diagnostics, could depend on near atomic scale cracks — or nanogaps — in electrodes. Now, researchers have developed a ... read more

Feb. 2, 2016 — A newly upgraded camera that incorporates light sensors is now one of the best cameras on the planet for studying outer space at red wavelengths that are too red for the human eye to ... read more

Feb. 1, 2016 — A team of investigators describes a new imaging spectrometer design that could enable improved images from NASA's Landsat, for better understanding of phenomena, and environments as diverse as ... read more

Feb. 1, 2016 — New transparent metamaterials under development could make possible computer chips and interconnecting circuits that use light instead of electrons to process and transmit data, representing a ... read more

Feb. 1, 2016 — Researchers have created the world's smallest integrated optical switch. Applying a small voltage causes an atom to relocate, turning the switch on or ... read more

Jan. 30, 2016 — Researchers assumed that tiny objects would instantly blow up when hit by extremely intense light from the world’s most powerful X-ray laser. But to their astonishment, these nanoparticles ... read more

Jan. 29, 2016 — The iron Fe2+ atom embedded in a semiconductor exhibits a single non-degenerate ground state of zero magnetic moment. A team of scientists has demonstrated that by using sufficiently large strain it ... read more

Jan. 29, 2016 — Super-sharp images from within the human body made through tiny endoscopes have come a step closer to reality thanks to new research efforts. An advanced wavefront shaping method combined with unique ... read more

Exciting Silicon Nanoparticles

Jan. 28, 2016 — Separating the electric and magnetic components of light scattered by silicon nanoparticles enables more precise control of light, report ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — For the first time, researchers have shown that a very efficient vertical charge transport in semiconducting polymers is possible by controlled chain and crystallite orientation. These pioneering ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — A research team at Umeå University in Sweden has showed, for the first time, that a very efficient vertical charge transport in semiconducting polymers is possible by controlled chain and ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Standard lasers are actually not useful for secure communication because they emit what is called 'classical' light. Data eavesdroppers could extract any data being carried via classical ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Inside a massive clean room at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland the James Webb Space Telescope team is steadily installing the largest space telescope mirror ever. ... read more
