Chemists develop innovative nanosensors for multiple proteins

Chemists have developed a new method for parallel protein analysis that is, in principle, capable of identifying hundreds or even thousands of different proteins. It could be used to detect the presence of viruses and identify their type in tiny samples.

Kinematic analysis of light-induced jumping crystals

Live beings are not the only things that can move around - it turns out that small crystals can also rotate or even jump. Scientists from United Arab Emirates and Russia have now systematically examined crystals that move when irradiated by light.

Picosecond slow-motion confirms oxide materials exhibit considerably faster switching properties than semiconductors

As part of an international team of researchers, scientists at the Helmholtz Center Berlin have observed the switching mechanism from a non-conducting to a conducting state in iron oxide (specifically, magnetite) with previously unrealized precision. This switching mechanism, which in oxides proceeds in two consecutive steps, is thousands of times faster than it is in current transistors.

Engineering at the atomic scale to curb global carbon emissions

Could a substance that resembles baby powder curb global carbon emissions? Wake Forest University researchers believe so, and a new Department of Energy grant worth more than $1 million will enable them and collaborators at the University of Texas at Dallas to design a novel material that could help revolutionize green engineering.
