'Writing' Patterns on Carbon Nanotubes With Polymer Chains
Researchers suspend, image single DNA molecules
(PhysOrg.com) -- Studying chemical modifications in the chromosomes of cells is akin to searching for changes in coiled spaghetti. Scientists at Cornell have figured out how to stretch out tangled strands ...
LEGO toy helps researchers learn what happens on nanoscale
Johns Hopkins engineers are using a popular children's toy to visualize the behavior of particles, cells and molecules in environments too small to see with the naked eye. These researchers are arranging little ...
Georgia Tech researchers propose terabit level graphene antenna
Researchers create gel that displays spontaneous motion (w/ Video)
Combining quantum information communication and storage
(Phys.org)—Aalto University researchers in Finland have successfully connected a superconducting quantum bit, or qubit, with a micrometer-sized drum head. Thus they transferred information from the qubit ...
Oscillating microscopic beads could be key to biolab on a chip (w/ Video)
If you throw a ball underwater, you'll find that the smaller it is, the faster it moves: A larger cross-section greatly increases the water's resistance. Now, a team of MIT researchers has figured out a way to use this basic ...
Experiments demonstrate unusual melting and recrystallization behavior in one-dimensional electron crystals
(Phys.org) —The melting of ice is a familiar process: the ice gradually loses its crystalline structure and becomes a featureless puddle of liquid. Normally, no amount of further heating will bring back ...
Astronomers solve the mystery of stellar 'superwind'
Astronomers at the University of Manchester believe they have found the answer to the mystery of a powerful "superwind" which causes the death of stars.
