Scientists in Wales have developed a biosensor capable of detecting and identifying very low levels of explosives in the atmosphere -- a technology with potential to be a major contributor in the battle against terrorism.
Research shows proteins that function as molecular motors are surprisingly flexible and agile, able to navigate obstacles within the cell. These observations could lead to better ways to treat motor neuron diseases.
A team of researchers has observed the theoretical prediction of electron spin-charge separation in a one-dimensional solid. These results hold implications for future developments in several key areas of advanced technology, including high-temperature superconductors, nanowires and spintronics.
