Materials researcher fathoms growth of nanostructures on metal surface
Materials scientist Irem Tanyeli from energy research institute DIFFER has discovered how you can grow nanostructures in a controlled manner on a variety of metals, by bombarding the metals with helium particles. ...
Physicists show 'quantum freezing phenomenon' is universal
Scientists develop mesh that captures oil—but lets water through
The unassuming piece of stainless steel mesh in a lab at The Ohio State University doesn't look like a very big deal, but it could make a big difference for future environmental cleanups.
Global warming progressing at moderate rate, empirical data suggest
A new study based on 1,000 years of temperature records suggests global warming is not progressing as fast as it would under the most severe emissions scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on ...
Scientists watch living taste cells in action
Scientists have for the first time captured live images of the process of taste sensation on the tongue.
Engineer improves rechargeable batteries with MoS2 nano 'sandwich'
The key to better cellphones and other rechargeable electronics may be in tiny "sandwiches" made of nanosheets, according to mechanical engineering research from Kansas State University.
New biosensing platform could quickly and accurately diagnose disease and monitor treatment remotely
In much the same way that glucometers and pregnancy tests have revolutionized in-home diagnostic testing, researchers from Florida Atlantic University and collaborators have identified a new biosensing platform ...
Scientists create invisible objects without metamaterial cloaking
Physicists from ITMO University, Ioffe Institute and Australian National University managed to make homogenous cylindrical objects completely invisible in the microwave range. Contrary to the now prevailing ...
Dwindling bird populations in Fukushima
This is the time of year when birds come out and really spread their wings, but since a disastrous day just before spring's arrival four years ago, Japan's Fukushima province has not been friendly to the ...
New technology could speed up life-saving drug discoveries
