Quantum physics problem proved unsolvable

A mathematical problem underlying fundamental questions in particle and quantum physics is provably unsolvable, according to a new report. The findings are important because they show that even a perfect and complete description of the microscopic properties of a material is not enough to predict its macroscopic behavior.

Ratiometric sensing of toxins using quantum dots

Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) presents a significant hazard under numerous realistic scenarios. BoNT is the most toxic substance known. Current tests for BoNT are slow (2 days), lab-based, and complex. A new scheme offers quick, specific quantification by non-specialized personnel such as first responders in the field.
