More Bizarre Things: Matter & Energy
October 1, 2016

Sep. 15, 2016 — If you bottle up a gas and try to image its atoms using today's most powerful microscopes, you will see little more than a shadowy blur. Atoms zip around at lightning speeds and are difficult to ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Researchers have observed quantum effects in electrons by squeezing them into one-dimensional 'quantum wires' and observing the interactions between them. The results could be used to aid ... read more

Food Waste Could Store Solar, Wind Energy

Sep. 15, 2016 — Saving up excess solar and wind energy for times when the sun is down or the air is still requires a storage device. Batteries get the most attention as a promising solution although pumped ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — By coating tiny gel beads with lung-derived stem cells and then allowing them to self-assemble into the shapes of the air sacs found in human lungs, researchers have succeeded in creating ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Engineers have happened upon a way to stop the movement of the colorful eddies on the surface of soap bubbles. The results are works of art that could lead to stable engineered foams for medical ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Fabrics that can generate electricity from physical movement have been in the works for a few years. Now researchers have taken the next step, developing a fabric that can simultaneously harvest ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — By leveraging molecular beam epitaxy deposition and high-quality materials with large dielectric constants, researchers pursue future radio-frequency materials and devices capable of being ... read more

Sep. 12, 2016 — It is the double helix, with its stable and flexible structure of genetic information, that made life on Earth possible in the first place. Now a team has discovered a double helix structure in an ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Scientists have harnessed a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to directly write tiny patterns in metallic 'ink,' forming features in liquid that are finer than half the width ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Physicists have discovered that self-focused laser pulses generate violent swirls of optical energy that resemble smoke rings. In these light structures, known as 'spatiotemporal optical ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Researchers have made a breakthrough in controlling the motion of multiple objects on a vibrating plate with a single acoustic source. By playing carefully constructed melodies, the scientists can ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Researchers have discovered how to create the smallest ever water and gas pipes that are only one atom in ... read more

Team of Robots Learns to Work Together, Without Colliding

Sep. 7, 2016 — When you have too many robots together, they get so focused on not colliding with each other that they eventually just stop moving. Georgia Tech's new algorithms are different: they allow any ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Our intuition tells us that a sample of material compressed uniformly from all sides should reduce its dimensions. Only a few materials subjected to hydrostatic compression exhibit the opposite ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — When science fiction heroes communicate, they don‘t use landlines or cell phones. The caller simply appears in virtual form in the middle of the room; full sized and three dimensional. This vision ... read more

Wearable Integrated Thermocells Based on Gel Electrolytes Use Body Heat as Power Source

Sep. 6, 2016 — Electronics integrated into textiles are gaining in popularity: Systems like smartphone displays in a sleeve or sensors to detect physical performance in athletic wear have already been produced. The ... read more

Sep. 6, 2016 — Large quantities of fish are consumed in India on a daily basis, which generates a huge amount of fish 'biowaste' materials. In an attempt to do something positive with this biowaste, a ... read more

Sep. 5, 2016 — Researchers analyzing the genomes of microorganisms living in shale oil and gas wells have found evidence of sustainable ecosystems taking hold there -- populated in part by a never-before-seen genus ... read more

Sep. 1, 2016 — Engineers have led development of a laser-treatment process that allows them to use printed graphene for electric circuits and electrodes -- even on paper and other fragile surfaces. The technology ... read more

Sep. 1, 2016 — Researchers have engineered a low-cost plastic material that could become the basis for clothing that cools the wearer, reducing the need for energy-consuming air ... read more
