A new generation of microsensors could provide the vital link between food products and the Internet of Things. Researchers have developed an ultra-thin temperature sensor that is both biocompatible and biodegradable.
Researchers present strategies to demonstrate the degree to which highly deformable properties, including stretching, bending, and twisting can be achieved in conjunction with high-performance photodetection through the integration of Miura origami, array design, and paper printing processes.
A team of researchers have successfully demonstrated that a type of 'magic dust' which combines light and matter can be used to solve complex problems and could eventually surpass the capabilities of even the most powerful supercomputers.
Scientists have developed a fast-acting, non-invasive way to use fiber light to reveal information about fiber traps. This technique is reminiscent of biomedical and chemical sensors that use fibers to detect properties of nearby molecules.
Scientists were studying the nonlinear transmission of light through an aqueous suspension of gold nanoparticles when they noticed something unexpected. A pulse laser appeared to have forced the movement of a stream of liquid in a glass laboratory cuvette.
For hundreds of years, Chinese calligraphers have used a plant-based ink to create beautiful messages and art. Now, researchers report that this ink could noninvasively and effectively treat cancer cells that spread, or metastasize, to lymph nodes.
