Researchers have developed a new way to selectively insert compounds into cancer cells - a system that will help surgeons identify malignant tissues and then, in combination with phototherapy, kill any remaining cancer cells after a tumor is removed.
Scientists have developed a novel method which can be used to analyse the effects of the lack of space in living cells with the aid of a microscope for the first time. They designed a sensor that changes colour depending on how confined the space in the cell is.
Scientists have reviewed the recent theoretical studies on various novel pairing superfluid phases in spin-orbit coupled ultracold Fermi gases. They showed that spin-orbit coupling modifies the single-particle spectra, which gives rise to exotic few-body correlations and interesting pairing states.
A new study reveals that certain features of metal surfaces can stop the process of oxidation in its tracks. The findings could be relevant to understanding and perhaps controlling oxidation in a wide range of materials.
Scientists have developed an extremely sensitive yet simple motion detector that can be built easily by adapting already-existent technology. The system has proven accurate with detecting bacteria, yeast, and even cancer cells, and is considered for the rapid testing of drugs and even the detection of extraterrestrial life.
In a pioneering study, researchers were able to discover half-light, half-matter particles in atomically thin semiconductors consisting of two-dimensional layer of molybdenum and sulfur atoms arranged similar to graphene.
