Feb. 5, 2016 — Cells are not uniform spheres; they generally come in a variety of disparate shapes. In the broadest sense, this variation in shapes is known as cell polarity, and it is an essential property for a ... 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

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 — Researchers have observed polar vortices in a ferroelectric material that appear to be the electrical cousins of magnetic skyrmions. This discovery holds intriguing possibilities for advanced ... 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

Plasma Accelerator Research Station Taking Shape

Jan. 29, 2016 — Particle accelerators find many applications in fundamental research, as well as in health, energy and security applications. They range from relatively compact, sometimes even table top devices to ... read more

Is the Neutrino Its Own Antiparticle?

Jan. 29, 2016 — Almost every particle has an antimatter counterpart: a particle with the same mass but opposite charge, among other qualities. But certain characteristics of neutrinos and antineutrinos make ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Imagine a polymer with removable parts that can deliver something to the environment and then be chemically regenerated to function again. Or a polymer that can contract and expand the way muscles ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Physicists have made a surprising discovery that the arrangement of atomic nuclei spins helps bring about superconductivity in ytterbium dirhodium disilicide, one of the most-studied materials in a ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — In the production of margarine, millions of tons of unsaturated fatty acids are converted from vegetable oils using hydrogen. While searching for improved catalysts for these so-called hydrogenation ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Physicists determine the equation of state – the basis for understanding ... read more

Jan. 28, 2016 — Combining experimental investigations and theoretical simulations, researchers have explained why platinum nanoclusters of a specific size range facilitate the hydrogenation reaction used to produce ... 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. 27, 2016 — The first ever measurement of the temperature of electrons in a nanoelectronic device a few thousandths of a degree above absolute zero was demonstrated in a recent research ... read more

Jan. 27, 2016 — The first ever measurement of the temperature of electrons in a nanoelectronic device a few thousandths of a degree above absolute zero was demonstrated in a new research ... read more

Jan. 27, 2016 — Researchers have solved an apparently overwhelming physics problem involving some truly huge numbers. In summary, the problem asks you to imagine that you have 128 tennis balls, and can arrange them ... read more

Jan. 27, 2016 — A scientific team has identified previously undiscovered differences in grain boundaries. According to the paper, it is essential to understand the atomic structures of GBs in order to control and ... read more

Ultra-Bright, Highly Coherent Electron Source Developed to Improve the Performance of Electron-Beam Analytical Instrument

Jan. 28, 2016 — A new technology has been developed to fabricate lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) single-crystal nanowires with clean surface, a promising cold field-emission electron source for electron microscopes and ... read more

Jan. 26, 2016 — Researchers are using Titan to understand and control new methods for particle acceleration that could have big impacts on laser-driven tumor removal. Since lasers were first produced in the early ... read more

Jan. 26, 2016 — Quantum objects cannot just be understood as the sum of their parts. This is what makes quantum calculations so complicated. Scientists have now calculated Bose-Einstein-condensates, revealing the ... read more
