Brain-computer interfaces without the mess

It sounds like science fiction: controlling electronic devices with brain waves. But researchers have developed a new type of electroencephalogram (EEG) electrode that can do just that, without the sticky gel required for ...

A novel antibiotic idea: Preventing bacterial stickiness

Researchers within the Dirk Linke group in the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, are proposing a new method to fight the bacterium Yersinia enterocolitica, which causes severe diarrhea in an estimated 10 million ...

Devilish source of dust in atmosphere of Earth and Mars

Swirling columns of sand and dust, known as dust devils, are a feature of desert areas on Mars and on Earth. Now, a study of terrestrial dust devils has shown that around two thirds of the fine particles lifted by these vortices ...

Synthetic two-sided gecko's foot could enable underwater robotics

Geckos are well known for effortlessly scrambling up walls and upside down across ceilings. Even in slippery rain forests, the lizards maintain their grip. Now scientists have created a double-sided adhesive that copies this ...

Promising graphene catalyst obtained from sticky rice

Recently, researchers from Tsinghua University, Queen Mary University of London, and Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, have reported a promising graphene catalyst obtained from sticky rice, and revealed ...

Novel light sources made of 2-D materials

Physicists from the University of W├╝rzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs, which are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal ...
