Natural-waste pads developed to keep packaged meat fresh

Pads incorporated into fresh meat packaging, whose function is to absorb the moisture generated in it, and that can cause food spoilage, are generally composed of plastic polymers derived from petroleum by-products.

Evidence found of tidal impact on the plasmasphere

An international team of space scientists reports that the moon exerts a tidal impact on the plasmasphere. For their paper published in the journal Nature Physics, the group used data from multiple spacecraft over a nearly ...

Catching up to climate change by tracking big-picture patterns

If plants were a bit more ambulatory, Peter Adler and Michael Stemkovski might find their work to be a bit less urgent. If whenever the weather got too hot or dry, crested wheatgrass, yellow rabbitbrush and silvery groves ...

Physicists entangle more than a dozen photons efficiently

Physicists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have managed to entangle more than a dozen photons efficiently and in a defined way. They are thus creating a basis for a new type of quantum computer. Their study ...

Topological phases in biological systems

LMU physicists have shown that topological phases could exist in biology, and in so doing they have identified a link between solid-state physics and biophysics.
