Toward Mass-Producible Quantum Computers

May 26, 2017 — Mass-producible quantum computers are closer than ever, thanks to new research. This process for positioning quantum bits in diamond optical circuits could work at large scales, say ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Is it possible to watch at the level of single cells how fish embryos become trout, carp or salmon? Researchers have successfully combined two very advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. The ... read more

A Fresh Math Perspective Opens New Possibilities for Computational Chemistry

May 19, 2017 — A new mathematical “shortcut” is speeding up molecular absorption calculations by a factor of five, so simulations that used to take 10 to 15 hours to compute can now be done in approximately 2.5 ... read more

May 19, 2017 — Athletes often have to compete late in the evening, when they are no longer able to perform at their best. However, researchers have shown that athletes who are exposed to blue light before competing ... read more

In a Neutron-Rich Tin Nucleus, Electromagnetism Can Win Over the Strong Force

May 19, 2017 — The atomic nucleus offers a unique opportunity to study the competition between three of the four fundamental forces known to exist in nature, the strong nuclear interaction, the electromagnetic ... read more

Nanophysics: Saving Energy With a Spot of Silver

May 18, 2017 — Tomorrow’s computers will run on light, and gold nanoparticle chains show much promise as light conductors. Now scientists have demonstrated how tiny spots of silver could markedly reduce energy ... read more

May 18, 2017 — Hydrogen is an alternative source of energy that can be produced from renewable sources of sunlight and water. A group of researchers has developed a photocatalyst that increases hydrogen production ... read more

May 17, 2017 — A new technology generates cellular images detailed enough to distinguish cancerous from normal tissue. Researchers are working on speeding up the technology so it can be used during surgery, ... read more

May 17, 2017 — Engineers have combined light and sound in a microscopy technique that could allow surgeons to determine -- in the operating room -- whether a tumor has been completely removed from a cancer patient, ... read more

May 16, 2017 — Scientists have developed the first flat lens for immersion microscopy. This lens, which can be designed for any liquid, may provide a cost-effective and easy-to-manufacture alternative to the ... read more

Antibody Biosensor Offers Unlimited Point-of-Care Drug Monitoring

May 16, 2017 — A team of scientists has developed several antibody-based biosensors that have the potential to help healthcare centers in developing countries or even patients in their own homes keep track of drug ... read more

May 15, 2017 — Electronic devices that can not only be implanted in the human body but also completely dissolve on their own – known as “bioresorbable” electronics – are envisioned by many as one of medical ... read more

First 'Nanotherapeutics' Delivered to a Tumor

May 15, 2017 — For the first time, researchers have demonstrated a way to deliver a drug to a tumor by attaching it to a blood cell. The innovation could let doctors target tumors with anticancer drugs that might ... read more

May 15, 2017 — Engineers have developed a miniature device that's sensitive enough to feel the forces generated by swimming bacteria and hear the beating of heart muscle cells. The device is a nano-sized ... read more

May 15, 2017 — Researchers use a mechanical micrometer-size drum cooled close to the quantum ground state to amplify microwaves in a superconducting ... read more

May 15, 2017 — Smart windows that act as blinds in the summer and let all the sunlight through in the winter. That's the idea of the reflective windows that are able to reflect invisible infrared light but ... read more

May 12, 2017 — Researchers have uncovered the exact mechanism that causes new solar cells to break down in air, paving the way for a ... read more

May 10, 2017 — Researchers have developed gene-carrying nanoparticles that home in on target cells and prevent vision loss in mice with a human form of Leber congenital amaurosis. They believe the technology holds ... read more

May 10, 2017 — Scientists have produced a powerful green laser‹the highest average power green laser ever generated by a single fiber-based laser that will be crucial to experiments in nuclear physics at the ... read more

May 10, 2017 — Biomedical engineers are now able to take a live, holistic look at the inner workings of a small animal with enough resolution to see active organs, flowing blood, circulating melanoma cells and ... read more
