Development of Portable Device to Detect Arrhythmias in Real Time

May 19, 2016 — Researchers have created a device for detecting cardiac arrhythmias in real time, and that turns portable a system that uses electrodes placed on the chest of the patient or as part of clothing ... read more

May 16, 2016 — Physicists are putting themselves out of a job, using artificial intelligence to run a complex experiment. The experiment created an extremely cold gas trapped in a laser beam, known as a ... read more

May 13, 2016 — Holograms are a ubiquitous part of our lives. They are in our wallets -- protecting credit cards, cash and driver's licenses from fraud -- in grocery store scanners and biomedical devices. ... read more

Bioengineered Blood Vessel Is Safe for Dialysis Patients, Study Finds

May 13, 2016 — Scientists have created bioengineered blood vessels for kidney-disease patients on dialysis. The human-made vessels appeared to be both safe and more durable than commonly used synthetic versions, ... read more

May 12, 2016 — In experiments involving a simulation of the human esophagus and stomach, researchers have demonstrated a tiny origami robot that can unfold itself from a swallowed capsule and, steered by external ... read more

May 12, 2016 — Stanford and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory jointly run the world's leading program for isolating and studying diamondoids — the tiniest possible specks of diamond. Found naturally in ... read more

New Bio-Glass Could Make It Possible to Re-Grow or Replace Cartilage

May 12, 2016 — Scientists have developed a material that can mimic cartilage and potentially encourage it to re-grow. The material can be formulated to exhibit different properties, and researchers are now hoping ... read more

May 11, 2016 — The state of Missouri is a pioneer in adopting Diverging Diamond Interchanges (DDIs) named for their innovative design. At these interchanges drivers are diverted to the left side of the road prior ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Researchers have created ways to give a piece of paper sensing capabilities that allows it to respond to gesture commands and connect to the digital ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Robots can keep their parts and still change their gender, according to researchers, who noted that the arrival of robots with screens has made it easier to assign distinct ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Scientists have devised a way to build a “quantum metamaterial” -- an engineered material with exotic properties not found in nature -- using ultracold atoms trapped in an artificial crystal ... read more

Silk Stabilizes Blood Samples for Months at High Temperatures

May 10, 2016 — Researchers have stabilized blood samples for long periods of time without refrigeration and at high temperatures by encapsulating them in air-dried silk protein. The technique has broad applications ... read more

May 10, 2016 — The automated detection of products or by-products directly during the process has become an indispensable part of monitoring production processes. Mass spectrometry is a quick and selective method ... read more

May 9, 2016 — Computer science experts and engineering researchers have built a robot hand that can not only perform dexterous manipulation -- one of the most difficult problems in robotics to solve -- but also ... read more

First Single-Enzyme Method to Produce Quantum Dots Revealed

May 9, 2016 — Engineers have successfully demonstrated the first precisely controlled, biological way to manufacture quantum dots using a single-enzyme, paving the way for a significantly quicker, cheaper and ... read more

May 9, 2016 — Engineering researchers have developed a suite of techniques that allow them to create passive radio-frequency identification tags that are 25 percent smaller -- and therefore less ... read more

Catalytic Nanocages: Hollow and Filled With Potential

May 6, 2016 — Catalytic nanocages, which are tiny, open structures with reactive surfaces that could boost key chemical processes, are notoriously difficult to synthesize. Scientists recently succeeded in a new ... read more

May 5, 2016 — Using a layer of molybdenum disulfide less than 1 nanometer thick, researchers have designed a system that can absorb more than 35 percent of incident light in the 400- to 700-nanometer wavelength ... read more

May 4, 2016 — Engineers have found a new way to induce and control boiling bubble formation, that may allow everything from industrial-sized boilers to advanced electronics to work better and last ... read more
