Researchers use new method to calculate gravitational constant
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicists tease out twisted torques of DNA
Like an impossibly twisted telephone cord, DNA, the molecule that encodes genetic information, also often finds itself twisted into coils. This twisting, called supercoiling, is caused by enzymes that travel ...
COMAN: Researchers build first fully-limbed passive compliant robot (w/ video)
A novel rotary actuator provides greater torque, accuracy, and speed.

Using the correct annealing temperature is key to making fast, non-volatile computer memory
Computers often do not run as fast as they should because they are constantly transferring information between two kinds of memory: a fast, volatile memory connected to the CPU, and a slow, non-volatile memory ...
A nanoclutch for nanobots
Chinese researchers have designed and tested simulations of a "nanoclutch," a speed regulation tool for nanomotors.
Hynix, Toshiba to develop new STT-MRAM memory device
South Korea's Hynix Semiconductor and Japanese electronics giant Toshiba said Wednesday they have agreed to jointly develop a next-generation memory device.
Research improves the bolted joints in airplanes
A research project at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid that analyzes the bolted joints used in the aeronautical industry has determined the optimum force that should be applied so that they may better withstand ...
UCLA receives grant for ongoing research on high-speed, high-density computer memory
A team of researchers at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science has been awarded $5.5 million for ongoing efforts to develop technology they expect will lead to computers and other devices that use ...
Running shoes may cause damage to knees, hips and ankles
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) accounts for more disability in the elderly than any other disease. Running, although it has proven cardiovascular and other health benefits, can increase stresses on the joints of the leg. In a study ...

Researchers see exotic force for first time
(PhysOrg.com) -- For the first time, researchers have measured a long-theorized force that operates at distances so tiny they’re measured in billionths of a meter, which may have important applications in ...
