Faster, More Durable Water Filters: Plugging Up Leaky Graphene

May 7, 2015 — For faster, longer-lasting water filters, some scientists are looking to graphene --thin, strong sheets of carbon -- to serve as ultrathin membranes, filtering out contaminants to quickly purify high ... read more

'Super-Cool' Way to Deliver Drugs

May 6, 2015 — Some substances, when they undergo a process called 'rapid-freezing' or 'supercooling,' remain in liquid form -- even at below-freezing temperatures. A new study is the first to ... read more

May 5, 2015 — Scientists have developed a novel chest strap device for the long-term monitoring of patients with heart and circulatory problems. What is special about the new system is that it records an ... read more

May 1, 2015 — Synthetic microscopic beads sense changes in their environment and self-propel to migrate upstream, a step toward the realization of biomimetic microsystems with the ability to sense and respond to ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — Introducing flaws into liquid crystals by inserting microspheres and then controlling them with electrical fields: that, in a nutshell, is the rationale behind a method that could be exploited for a ... read more

Waking Proteins Up from Deep Sleep to Study Their Motions

Apr. 30, 2015 — In order to carry out their functions, proteins need to move. Scientists have developed a new technique to study motions in proteins with unprecedented accuracy. The method, which is based on NMR, ... read more

Apr. 29, 2015 — It is estimated that one in nine people globally lack access to safe water. Researchers are looking to fill that critical need and provide safe drinking water to the most remote locations in the ... read more

Apr. 27, 2015 — To directly observe chemical processes in unusual, new materials is a scientific dream, made possible by modern microscopy methods: researchers have, for the first time, captured video images of the ... read more

Artificial Spin Ice: A New Playground to Better Understand Magnetism

Apr. 27, 2015 — For the first time, nanomagnet islands or arrays were arranged into an exotic structure (called “shakti”) that does not directly relate to any known natural material. The “shakti” artificial ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Drizzling honey on toast can produce mesmerizing, meandering patterns, as the syrupy fluid ripples and coils in a sticky, golden thread. Dribbling paint on canvas can produce similarly serpentine ... read more

Scientists Develop First Liquid Nanolaser

Apr. 24, 2015 — Scientists have developed the first liquid nanoscale laser. And it's tunable in real time, meaning you can quickly and simply produce different colors, a unique and useful feature. The laser ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — The fourth dimension is time, shape shifting in fact, and scientists are already working on the next revolution in additive ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A seismology team finds that high volumes of wastewater injection combined with saltwater (brine) extraction from natural gas wells is the most likely cause of earthquakes near Azle, Texas, from late ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Proteins and lipids have been assumed to move through cell membranes as 'nano rafts'. This 'raft hypothesis' has now been disproved by scientists. "We should not think of the ... read more

Bubbles Dilemma Solved After More Than Twenty Years

Apr. 21, 2015 — It was a question that has kept physicists and chemists busy for more than twenty years. Why can tiny bubbles in a liquid supersaturated with gas remain stable for weeks, while according to ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — Physicists have used a new quantum model to reveal the molecular structure of water's liquid ... read more

Measurement of Components in 3-D Underwater

Apr. 15, 2015 — The maintenance of underwater technical systems is elaborate and expensive. Pipes, flanges and connections of conveying systems for oil and gas at sea, for example, must first be measured for this ... read more

New Mathematical Method Enhances Hydrology Simulations

Apr. 15, 2015 — A team applied sophisticated mathematical solutions to fine tune water and energy exchange parameters, numerical stand-ins for complex processes, to more accurately simulate water and energy fluxes ... read more

Apr. 15, 2015 — More American homes could be powered by the Earth's natural underground heat with a nontoxic fluid that could cut in half the amount of water needed for a new power generation method called ... read more
