Synchronized nanoscale oscillators may spur new devices

Synchronization phenomena are everywhere in the physical world - from circadian rhythms to side-by-side pendulum clocks coupled mechanically through vibrations in the wall. Researchers have now demonstrated synchronization at the nanoscale, using only light, not mechanics.

Physicists make strides in understanding quantum entanglement

Using computers to calculate the extreme version of quantum entanglement - how the spin of every electron in certain electronic materials could be entangled with another electron's spin - the research team found a way to predict this characteristic. Future applications of the research are expected to benefit fields such as information technology.

Nanochains mark micrometastases for early diagnosis, treatment

Malignant cells that leave a primary tumor, travel the bloodstream, and grow out of control in new locations cause the vast majority of cancer deaths. A new type of nanoparticle construct, developed at Case Western Reserve University, detects these metastases in mouse models of breast cancer far earlier than current methods, which is a step toward earlier detection and treatment.
