A growing body of experimental evidence is lending support to the theory that an exotic state of matter called a quantum spin liquid actually exists. Signatures of a quantum spin liquid have now been observed in an organic insulator.
The Clean Energy Investment Presentations featured the hottest emerging cleantech start-ups, who showcased their revolutionary technologies to an audience of regional and national venture capitalists, private investors, investment bankers, and federal executives.
Dr. Mauro Ferrari, an internationally recognized leader, collaborator and scientist specializing in biomedical nanotechnology, was named President and CEO of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute today.
Researchers at the Tufts University School of Engineering and Boston University have fabricated and characterized the first large area metamaterial structures patterned on implantable, bio-compatible silk substrates.
The State University of New York (SUNY), in partnership with The Research Foundation of SUNY and SUNY campuses statewide, has launched five regional 'Technology Transfer' hubs across the SUNY research enterprise as part of a novel effort to spur new high-tech business opportunities and stimulate economic growth across New York State.
So far no imaging technique has been up to the task of defining the melanoma's boundaries accurately enough to guide surgery. Instead surgeons tend to cut well beyond the visible margins of the lesion in order to be certain they remove all the malignant tissue. Two scientists at Washington University in St. Louis have developed technologies that together promise to solve this difficult problem.
In a development that holds potential for both data storage and biomedical imaging, Ohio State University researchers have used a new technique to obtain the highest-ever resolution MRI scan of the inside of a magnet.
