New largest number factored on a quantum device is 56,153
Electron spin changes as a general mechanism for general anesthesia?
New cancer-hunting 'nano-robots' to seek and destroy tumours
It sounds like a scene from a science fiction novel – an army of tiny weaponised robots travelling around a human body, hunting down malignant tumours and destroying them from within.
Two photons strongly coupled by glass fiber
Usually, light waves do not interact with each other. Coupling of photons with other photons is only possible with the help of special materials and very intense light. Scientists in Vienna have now created ...
Color hologram uses plasmonic nanoparticles to store large amounts of information
Liberal or conservative? Reactions to disgust are a dead giveaway
Maggot infestations, rotting carcasses, unidentifiable gunk in the kitchen sink – how much your brain responds to disgusting images could predict whether you are liberal or conservative.
Researchers use the latest in nanotechnology and transdermal drug delivery to take on an old problem: acne
Acne, a scourge of adolescence, may be about to meet its ultra high-tech match. By using a combination of ultrasound, gold-covered particles and lasers, researchers from UC Santa Barbara and the private medical ...
Soda can array revisited: It may not beat the diffraction limit after all
Researchers create 3-D stereoscopic color prints with nanopixels
Researchers demonstrate ultra low-field nuclear magnetic resonance using Earth's magnetic field
Earth's magnetic field, a familiar directional indicator over long distances, is routinely probed in applications ranging from geology to archaeology. Now it has provided the basis for a technique which might, ...
Entangled photons unlock new super-sensitive characterisation of quantum technology
A new protocol for estimating unknown optical processes, called unitary operations, with precision enhanced by the unique properties of quantum mechanics has been demonstrated by scientists and engineers ...
Intelligent data analysis with guaranteed privacy
Siemens is developing tools that ensure smart data applications abide by data protection regulations. The reliable protection of data privacy is very important because it is a precondition for people or institutions ...
Nanoparticles that enable both MRI and fluorescent imaging could monitor cancer, other diseases
MIT chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorescent imaging in living animals. Such particles could help scientists to track specific ...
