July 21, 2015 — BPA's popularity soared after the 1950s, but evidence suggests that even low doses might be harmful to human and environmental health. Many manufacturers are now phasing out BPA, but it ... read more

July 20, 2015 — In a tremendous boost for spintronic technologies, scientists have shown that electrons can jump through spins much faster than previously ... read more

July 20, 2015 — Scientists studying thin layers of phosphorus have found surprising properties that could open the door to ultrathin and ultralight solar cells and LEDs. The team used sticky tape to create ... read more

July 17, 2015 — Research shows lightweight composite metal foams are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, and are capable of absorbing the energy of high impact collisions. The finding ... read more

Drug-Encapsulating Nanoparticle With Bright Bio-Labels Measures How Anticancer Chemotherapy Formulations Enter Cells

July 16, 2015 — Polymer nanoparticles that release medicine at controlled rates inside cells have the potential to enhance the efficacy of many clinical drugs. Researchers have now developed an eye-catching way to ... read more

July 16, 2015 — 'SINGLE' is a new imaging technique that provides the first atomic-scale 3-D structures of individual nanoparticles in solution. This is an important step for improving the design of ... read more

July 16, 2015 — Scientists have discovered Weyl fermions, elusive massless particles theorized 85 years ago that could give rise to faster and more efficient electronics because of their unusual ability to behave as ... read more

July 16, 2015 — Hexagonal boron nitride bends electromagnetic energy in unusual and potentially useful ways. Physicists recently found that nanoscale granules of the material can store light. Now they have shown ... read more

July 15, 2015 — Engineers have combined two promising solar cell materials together for the first time, creating a new platform for LED technology. The team designed a way to embed strongly luminescent nanoparticles ... read more

July 15, 2015 — The Sun can be a better chemist, thanks to zinc oxide nanorod arrays grown on a graphene substrate and 'decorated' with dots of cadmium sulphide. In the presence of solar radiation, this ... read more

July 14, 2015 — For the first time, the wavelike behavior of a room-temperature polariton condensate has been demonstrated in the laboratory on a macroscopic length scale. This represents a significant development ... read more

July 14, 2015 — How can two metals that are not magnetic combine to make a magnet? Scientists have found one answer in their creation of the first known itinerant antiferromagnet from nonmagnetic ... read more

July 14, 2015 — When a sound wave hits an obstacle and is scattered, the signal may be lost or degraded. But what if you could guide the signal around that obstacle, as if the interfering barrier didn't even ... read more

July 14, 2015 — Today, the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider has reported the discovery of a class of particles known as ... read more

Nanoscale Light-Emitting Device Has Big Profile

July 13, 2015 — Engineers have created a nanoscale device that can emit light as powerfully as an object 10,000 times its size. It's an advance that could have huge implications for everything from photography ... read more

July 13, 2015 — By studying the effect of femtosecond laser pulses on the types of materials used to make DVDs, researchers made a discovery that could one day lead to better information storage in ... read more

July 13, 2015 — In a breakthrough for nanoscience, polymer engineers have made such a mold for nanostructures that can shape liquid silicon out of an organic polymer material. This paves the way for perfect, 3-D, ... read more

July 13, 2015 — Physicists have used a scanning tunneling microscope to create a minute transistor consisting of a single molecule and a small number of atoms. The observed transistor action is markedly different ... read more

July 13, 2015 — Plants and bacteria make use of sunlight with remarkably high efficiency: nine out of ten absorbed light particles are being put to use in an ordinary bacterium. For years, it has been a pressing ... read more

July 10, 2015 — Groundbreaking work has confirmed plutonium's magnetism, which scientists have long theorized but have never been able to experimentally ... read more
