Scanning in the fourth dimension

Three-dimensional (3-D) computed tomography is a widely used technology that visualizes an object's external and internal structure by assembling a series of two-dimensional images taken sequentially across or around it. ...

Simple swap for a greener toolkit

A metal catalyst that gives distinct carbon-based molecular skeletons upon ligand change may unlock cost-effective, green synthetic route

Detecting metabolites at close range

A novel concept for a biosensor of the metabolite lactate combines an electron transporting polymer with lactate oxidase, which is the enzyme that specifically catalyzes the oxidation of lactate. Lactate is associated with ...

Electronic skin stretched to new limits

An electrically conductive hydrogel that takes stretchability, self-healing and strain sensitivity to new limits has been developed at KAUST. "Our material outperforms all previously reported hydrogels and introduces new ...

Robots learn by checking in on team members

The software and hardware needed to coordinate a team of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that can communicate and work toward a common goal have recently been developed by KAUST researchers.

The long and the short of DNA replication

The process of copying DNA is complex choreography that requires rapid speeds and pin-point precision. Discovering the intricate details of this process could identify new ways to target diseases, such as cancer, and KAUST ...

Combing light for tell-tale chemical fingerprints

A laser-based technique that can scan and lock on to molecular vibrational signals that are normally too complex to resolve clearly could enable production of sensors for multi-species identification in harsh environments, ...
