Two-photon microscopy: New research may help drastically reduce cost of powerful microscope technique
(Phys.org) —A dye-based imaging technique known as two-photon microscopy can produce pictures of active neural structures in much finer detail than functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, but it ...
New model suggests ocean pH falling more rapidly
Blue light enables genes to turn on
Oldest objects in solar system indicate a turbulent beginning
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists have found that calcium, aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs), some of the oldest objects in the solar system, formed far away from our sun and then later fell back into the mid-plane ...
Scientists convert carbon-dioxide emissions to useful building materials, using genetically altered yeast
Every year, about 30 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide are pumped into the Earth’s atmosphere from power plants, cars and other industrial sources that rely on fossil fuels. Scientists who want to mitigate ...
Researchers discover water on the moon is widespread, similar to Earth's
Researchers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are once again turning what scientists thought they knew about the moon on its head.
Quantum simulation of a relativistic particle
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Innsbruck, Austria used a calcium ion to simulate a relativistic quantum particle, demonstrating a phenomenon ...
Could salt crusts be key ingredient in cooking up prebiotic molecules?
German scientists investigating the complex chemical mixture thought to be present in the early Earth’s oceans have found that amino acids can be 'cooked' into many other important chemical building blocks ...
Alzheimer’s Findings Resolve Dispute Over How Disease Kills Brain Cells
(PhysOrg.com) -- For a decade, Alzheimer's disease researchers have been entrenched in debate about one of the mechanisms believed to be responsible for brain cell death and memory loss in the illness.
How living cells solved a needle in a haystack problem to produce electrical signals
Scientists have figured out how calcium channels – the infinitesimal cell membrane pores that generate electrical signals by gating a charged-particle influx – have solved a "needle in a haystack" problem.
Reaction rate of many molecules depends on their shape
Most molecules occur in several shapes, which may behave very differently. Using a sorting machine for molecules, a German–Swiss research team can now for the first time directly measure the various reaction ...
Physicists use element 115 to highlight a way for taking new superheavy elements' fingerprints
An international team of researchers presents fresh evidence that confirms the existence of the superheavy chemical element 115. The experiment was conducted at the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Res ...
