Light triggers gold in unexpected way

Rice University researchers have discovered a fundamentally different form of light-matter interaction in their experiments with gold nanoparticles.

Magnetic materials for motors of the future

According to a statistic from the University of Chicago, 50 percent of U.S. power goes through a motor. Vehicles like cars and planes rely on motors to transform power, as do household appliances like vacuums and refrigerators. ...

Electric shocks kill bacteria

Low temperatures and an acidic environment create the ideal conditions for an effective method of inactivating Listeria (and other germs) in the processing of whey protein solutions – without destroying valuable nutrients. ...

Simulations show new phenomenon with nanopore DNA sequencing

Any truck operator knows that hydraulics do the heavy lifting. Water does the work because it's nearly incompressible at normal scales. But things behave strangely in nanotechnology, the control of materials at the scale ...
