Researchers theoretically demonstrate the detection of a single nuclear spin at room temperature
For the first time, a researcher at the University of Waterloo has theoretically demonstrated that it is possible to detect a single nuclear spin at room temperature, which could pave the way for new approaches ...
Astrophysicists offer proof that famous image shows forming planets
A recent and famous image from deep space marks the first time we've seen a forming planetary system, according to a study by University of Toronto astrophysicists.
New analysis shows how bombardier beetles produce explosive defensive chemical jet
Bombardier beetles, which exist on every continent except Antarctica, have a pretty easy life. Virtually no other animals prey on them, because of one particularly effective defense mechanism: When disturbed ...
New Horizons detects surface features, possible polar cap on Pluto
For the first time, images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft are revealing bright and dark regions on the surface of faraway Pluto – the primary target of the New Horizons close flyby in mid-July.
Tracking exploding lithium-ion batteries in real-time (w/ Video)
What happens when lithium-ion batteries overheat and explode has been tracked inside and out for the first time by a UCL-led team using sophisticated 3D imaging.
Engineering team invents a camera that powers itself
A research team led by Shree K. Nayar, T.C. Chang Professor of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering, has invented a prototype video camera that is the first to be fully self-powered—it can produce an ...
Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis (w/ Video)
A device developed by Massachusetts General Hospital investigators may bring rapid, accurate molecular diagnosis of tumors and other diseases to locations lacking the latest medical technology. In their report ...
Engineers devise method for producing high-res, 3D images of nanoscale objects
To design the next generation of optical devices, ranging from efficient solar panels to LEDs to optical transistors, engineers will need a 3-dimensional image depicting how light interacts with these objects ...
Camera chip provides superfine 3-D resolution
Imagine you need to have an almost exact copy of an object. Now imagine that you can just pull your smartphone out of your pocket, take a snapshot with its integrated 3-D imager, send it to your 3-D printer, ...
Real-time holographic displays one step closer to reality
Researchers from the University of Cambridge have designed a new type of pixel element and demonstrated its unique switching capability, which could make three-dimensional holographic displays possible.
Research pair finds color a big factor in how much an image is shared on Pinterest
To speed up magma, add water
It was a bit like making a CT scan of a patient's head and finding he had very little brain or making a PET scan of a dead fish and seeing hot spots of oxygen consumption. Scientists making seismic images ...
Used MRI magnets get a second chance at life in high-energy physics experiments
When it comes to magnets, a doctor's trash is a physicist's treasure.
