Best of Last Week – Evidence of quark-gluon interactions, new portable device hack and why we may never live forever
(Phys.org) —With summer drawing to a close, research is starting to heat up. Last week, physicists at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider used supercomputer calculations to offer evidence that particles predicted by the theory of quark-gluon interactions are being produced i ...
Color hologram uses plasmonic nanoparticles to store large amounts of information
Electron spin changes as a general mechanism for general anesthesia?
Multiplexing technique for nanoMRI imaging cuts scan time from two weeks to two days
NanoMRI is a scanning technique that produces nondestructive, high-resolution 3-D images of nanoscale objects, and it promises to become a powerful tool for researchers and companies exploring the shape and ...
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 ...
Engineers efficiently 'mix' light at the nanoscale
The race to make computer components smaller and faster and use less power is pushing the limits of the properties of electrons in a material. Photonic systems could eventually replace electronic ones, but ...
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 ...
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, ...
'Nanojuice' could improve how doctors examine the gut
Located deep in the human gut, the small intestine is not easy to examine. X-rays, MRIs and ultrasound images provide snapshots but each suffers limitations. Help is on the way.
Nanoscale composites improve MRI: Researchers merge magnetic particles to detect, fight disease
(Phys.org) —Submicroscopic particles that contain even smaller particles of iron oxide could make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) a far more powerful tool to detect and fight disease.
