May 13, 2015 — Physicists have built a microscope that is able to see up to 1,000 individual fermionic atoms. The researchers devised a laser-based technique to trap and freeze fermions in place, and image the ... read more

May 13, 2015 — Inspired by the way iridescent bird feathers play with light, scientists have created thin films of material in a wide range of pure colors -- from red to green -- with hues determined by physical ... read more

May 13, 2015 — The recombination of electron shells in molecules, taking just a few dozen attoseconds (a billionth of a billionth of a second) can now be viewed 'live,' thanks to a new ... read more

May 13, 2015 — A new material stays liquid more than 200 degrees F below its expected freezing point, but a light touch can cause it to form yellow crystals that glow under ultraviolet ... read more

May 13, 2015 — A new technique promises to overturn the standard workflow in pathologic assessments of tissue by adding molecular information to standard optical imaging. The study relies on computation, instead of ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Researchers have demonstrated a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water. A boat made of such composites will not sink despite damage to its structure. This first ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new composite photocathode for generating hydrogen using sunlight. The photocathode consists of a thin film of chalcopyrite coated with a newly developed thin film of ... read more

May 12, 2015 — A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers has created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain. The laser-scanning microscope, a prototype which will be ... read more

Food Dye, Near Infrared Light Can Aid in Breast Resection

May 12, 2015 — Roughly 1 in 4 women having breast conserving surgery (BCS) return to the surgical suite for further resection because of cancerous tissue left behind due to unclear margins. A research team focuses ... read more

May 11, 2015 — A moth's eye and lotus leaf were the inspirations for an antireflective water-repelling, or superhydrophobic, glass coating that holds significant potential for solar panels, lenses, detectors, ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Using a smart tablet and a red beam of light, researchers have created a system that allows people to control a fleet of robots with the swipe of a ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Researchers have successfully demonstrated pattern recognition using a magnonic holographic memory device, a development that could greatly improve speech and image recognition ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Rydberg atoms, atoms whose outermost electrons are highly excited but not ionized, might be just the thing for processing quantum information. These outsized atoms can be sustained for a long time in ... read more

May 11, 2015 — A new joining process enables the production of all-aluminum auto parts without rivets and fasteners that increase cost and ... read more

May 11, 2015 — A method to separate two rare earth elements -- europium and yttrium -- with UV light instead of with traditional solvents has been revealed by researchers. Their findings offer new opportunities for ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Modern medicine relies on optical fibers to cauterize unhealthy veins in a minimally invasive way. Now, researchers have developed a laser processing method that facilitates automated series ... read more

Altering Genes With the Aid of Light

May 8, 2015 — Scientists have been manipulating genes for a while. Now researchers have found a way to control the process with higher precision, by using ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Researchers have succeeded in creating a new 'whispering gallery' effect for electrons in a sheet of graphene -- making it possible to precisely control a region that reflects electrons ... read more
