Dairy scientist targets heat-resistant microbes
Corralling desperados with names like bacillus and paenibacillus will require ingenuity and an arsenal of weapons. These outlaws aren't rustling cattle—they're making milk sour and cheese soft and crumbly.
Color pixels made of nanowires offer new paradigm for digital cameras
Analysis probes charge transfer in porous battery electrodes for the first time
The electrochemical reactions inside the porous electrodes of batteries and fuel cells have been described by theorists, but never measured directly. Now, a team at MIT has figured out a way to measure the ...
Synthesizing textiles from sugar
In the future, the clothes you wear could be made from sugar. Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have discovered a new chemical process that can convert adipic acid directly from sugar.
Negev desert solar field uses water-free robotic cleaning system
Researchers demonstrate information processing using a light-based chip inspired by our brain
In a recent paper in Nature Communications, researchers from Ghent University report on a novel paradigm to do optical information processing on a chip, using techniques inspired by the way our brain works.
The multiplication of cells under close observation
A group from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, discovers a key factor that curbs the undesirable triggering of DNA replication.
Students to hack hardware, software and data to build security skills
Come fall, students at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University will begin hacking computers—for credit.
New view of supernova death throes
A powerful, new three-dimensional model provides fresh insight into the turbulent death throes of supernovas, whose final explosions outshine entire galaxies and populate the universe with elements that make ...
Better chemistry through parallel in time algorithms
Molecular dynamics simulations often take too long to be practical for simulating chemical processes that occur on long timescales. Scientists DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the University of ...
In quantum theory of cognition, memories are created by the act of remembering
Southern Ocean iron cycle gives new insight into climate change
An international team of researchers analyzed the available data taken from all previous studies of the Southern Ocean, together with satellite images taken of the area, to quantify the amount of iron supplied ...
Trapped by an avalanche, saved by an app
An app developed at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology makes it possible for skiers with smartphones to find people buried in the snow after an avalanche.
Moving light across a semiconducting nanowire via surface acoustic waves
Researchers at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente in collaboration with the Paul Drude Institute in Berlin have succeeded in moving light from one end of a semiconducting nanowire ...
