Unexpected behaviour of microdroplets

Physicists agree that laminar flow of liquids has been well understood and described in detail from the theoretical point of view. Researchers at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw have, however, observed that droplets of chemical substances flowing in a carrier liquid inside microchannels - although presenting laminar flow inside them - present multiple mysteries.

Novel filter material could cut natural gas refining costs

Measurements taken by a team including National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) scientists show that a newly devised material has the ability to separate closely related components of natural gas from one another, a task that currently demands a good deal of energy to accomplish.

'Backpacking' bacteria

To the ranks of horses, donkeys, camels and other animals that have served humanity as pack animals or beasts of burden, scientists are now enlisting bacteria to ferry nano-medicine cargos throughout the human body.

How quantum physics could make 'The Matrix' more efficient

Researchers have discovered a new way in which computers based on quantum physics could beat the performance of classical computers. The work, by researchers based in Singapore and the UK, implies that a Matrix-like simulation of reality would require less memory on a quantum computer than on a classical computer. It also hints at a way to investigate whether a deeper theory lies beneath quantum theory.
