The long-term impacts of studying cornea biomechanics

Nature has had millennia to optimize biomaterials for useful properties, from lightweight strength to walking on smooth, vertical surfaces. Mother-of-pearl, spider silk, cholla wood "skeletons" and gecko feet are all good ...

All quantum communication involves nonlocality

Researchers of CWI, University of Gdansk, Gdansk University of Technology, Adam Mickiewicz University and the University of Cambridge have proven that quantum communication is based on nonlocality. They show that whenever ...

Solving hard quantum problems—everything is connected

Quantum objects cannot just be understood as the sum of their parts. This is what makes quantum calculations so complicated. Scientists at TU Wien have now calculated Bose-Einstein-condensates, revealing the secrets of the ...

Breeding confident mink can have side benefits

Mink that are confident by nature are easier for the mink farmer to work with. They also get less stressed when handled. These are two good reasons why mink farmers include this trait when selecting animals for breeding. ...

Science provides new way to peer into pores

Rice University scientists led a project to "see" and measure the space in porous materials, even if that space is too small or fragile for traditional microscopes.

New algorithm aimed at combating science's reproducibility problem

Big data sets are important tools of modern science. Mining for correlations between millions of pieces of information can reveal vital relationships or predict future outcomes, such as risk factors for a disease or structures ...
