A group of scientists has developed a fundamentally new type of memory cell based on superconductors ? this type of memory will be able to work hundreds of times faster than the types of memory devices commonly used today.
This research presents a method for utilizing enhanced darkfield microscopy (EDFM) and hyperspectral imaging (HSI) to easily and rapidly image nanoparticles in tissues from toxicology studies and map the distribution of nanoparticles throughout biological samples based on elemental composition.
Researchers have demonstrated a new type of laser that is able to produce laser beams 'with a twist' as its output. The outputs and superpositions of the new type of laser form a set of beams, called vector vortex beams.
Someday, cicadas and dragonflies might save your sight. The key to this power lies in their wings, which are coated with a forest of tiny pointed pillars that impale and kill bacterial cells unlucky enough to land on them.
A team of engineers recently published research on a method for using electric fields to help tiny bio-robots propelled by flagellated bacteria navigate around obstacles in a fluid environment. These microrobots could one day be used for building microscopic devices or even delivering medication at the cellular level.
A research team has observed for the first time how HIV and Ebola viruses attach to cells to spread infection. These findings offer a new way of treating such viruses: instead of destroying the pathogens, introduce a block on how they interact with cells.
Researchers re on a quest to find out as much as they can about unusual states of matter called spin liquids and if these spin liquids could generate advances in the field of physics. The results could lead to the development of quantum computing, which require an exploration of new materials to become a reality.
