Basque researchers turn light upside down


Optical waves propagating away from a point source typically exhibit circular (convex) wavefronts. "Like waves on a water surface when a stone is dropped", explains Peining Li, EU Marie Sklodowska-Cur...

Stiffness matters


Nanomedicines need to get taken up by diseased cells in order to release their cargo. Cancer cells have altered membrane properties, which hamper their ability to take up nanomedicines. A research tea...

Histology in 3-D: New staining method enables Nano-CT imaging of tissue samples


To date, examining patient tissue samples has meant cutting them into thin slices for histological analysis. This might now be set to change - thanks to a new staining method devised by an interdiscip...

Developing reliable quantum computers


Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can't manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to ensure it is working reliably? Depending on...

Imaging individual flexible DNA 'building blocks' in 3-D: Berkeley Lab researchers generate first images of 129 DNA structures


Over the past decade, researchers have been working to create nanoscale materials and devices using DNA as construction materials through a process called "DNA origami."

'Memtransistor' brings world closer to brain-like computing: Combined memristor and transistor can process information and store memory with one device


Computer algorithms might be performing brain-like functions, such as facial recognition and language translation, but the computers themselves have yet to operate like brains.

Arrowhead Receives Regulatory Clearance to Begin Phase 1 Study of ARO-AAT for Treatment of Alpha-1 Liver Disease


Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ARWR) today announced that it has received approval from the New Zealand Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Authority (MEDSAFE) and from the local Ethics Comm...

MEMS chips get metatlenses: Combining metasurface lenses with MEMS technology could add high-speed scanning and enhance focusing capability of optical systems


Lens technologies have advanced across all scales, from digital cameras and high bandwidth in fiber optics to the LIGO lab instruments. Now, a new lens technology that could be produced using standard...

Atomic structure of ultrasound material not what anyone expected


Lead magnesium niobate (PMN) is a prototypical "relaxor" material, used in a wide variety of applications, from ultrasound to sonar. Researchers have now used state-of-the-art microscopy techniques to...

Oxford Instruments announces Dr Kate Ross as winner of the 2018 Lee Osheroff Richardson Science Prize for North and South America


Oxford Instruments is delighted to announce the winner of the 2018 Lee Osheroff Richardson (LOR) Science Prize for North America as Dr Kate A. Ross, Assistant Professor, Department of Physics of Color...

China aims for global leader in science by mid-century

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 17:42:04 PST

China has significantly ramped up spending in scientific research over the past decade. The Natural Science Foundation of China, for example, financed 41,184 programs with 22.71 billion yuan (about 3...

SNUH team develops new nanomaterial for thermal cancer therapy

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 09:02:45 PST

The Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH) said Friday it has developed a new nanomaterial that can improve the therapeutic benefits of the thermal cancer therapy.

Printing Flexible Graphene Supercapacitors

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 05:50:41 PST

Graphene is being employed for ever more types of flexible products. Unfortunately, traditional microfabrication techniques limit the scalability of potentially application-ready technologies. The eco...

Atomic scale Moiré patterns to push electronic boundaries?

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 09:03:37 PST

An atomic scale version of the phenomenon that forms interference patterns on television displays may help electronics design to push the current limits of size and speed. Moiré patterns occur on...

Nonviral CRISPR Delivery a Success

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 22:31:51 PST

While promising, applications of CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing have so far been limited by the challenges of delivery—namely, how to get all the CRISPR parts to every cell that needs them. In a study publ...

Acting like a muscle, nano-sized device lifts 165 times its own weight

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 07:46:54 PST

Imagine repeatedly lifting 165 times your weight without breaking a sweat -- a feat normally reserved for heroes like Spider-Man. Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have discovered a simple...

Research team bends individual tetrapod nanostructures

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 14:29:58 PST

Since a research group at Kiel University (CAU) and the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in Hamburg-Harburg has developed aerographite – one of the most light weight materials in the world – in...

Synthetic “Melanin” Could Act as a Natural Sunscreen: The pigmentlike nanoparticles could protect cells from the sun’s damaging rays

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 20:04:43 PST

As summers grow steadily hotter, many people feel a need to slather on ever more sunscreen—or wear more clothes—to prevent the sun’s ultraviolet radiation from crisping their skin and increasing the o...
