Microscale 'transformer' robots are joining forces to break through blocked arteries
Swarms of microscopic, magnetic, robotic beads could be scrubbing in next to the world's top vascular surgeons—all taking aim at blocked arteries. These microrobots, which look and move like corkscrew-shaped ...

Trio create model to explain massive heat in the Sun's corona
Engineers develop a computer that operates on water droplets
Computers and water typically don't mix, but in Manu Prakash's lab, the two are one and the same. Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, and his students have built a synchronous computer ...
Ultrafast heat conduction can manipulate nanoscale magnets
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have uncovered physical mechanisms allowing the manipulation of magnetic information with heat. These new phenomena rely on the transport of thermal ...
Scientists see ripples of a particle-separating wave in primordial plasma
Scientists in the STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a particle accelerator exploring nuclear physics and the building blocks of matter at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven ...
Researchers prove magnetism can control heat, sound
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by ...
Demonstration of room temperature spin transport in germanium
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 ...
