Researchers have developed an artificial receptor that can bind sucrose in water with exquisite precision. The achievement represents a leap forward for the development of biosensors, and provides new insights into our perception of sweetness.
Researchers report multifunctional hydrogel microparticles bearing a spatially patterned binary authenticity code capable of tagging more than a billion distinct products and two integrated sensors reporting the product safety.
Scientists have discovered a new kind of magnetic nano-object in a novel material that could serve as a magnetic bit with cloaking properties to make a magnetic disk drive with no moving parts - a Racetrack Memory - a reality in the near future.
Researchers have achieved the first measurements of thermal conductivity of warm dense aluminum - a prototype material commonly used in model development - by heating a dual-layer target of gold and aluminum with laser-generated protons.
