Natural 3D counterpart to graphene discovered

A collaboration of researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has discovered that sodium bismuthate can exist as a form of quantum matter called a three-dimensional topological Dirac semi-metal. This is the first experimental confirmation of 3D Dirac fermions in the interior or bulk of a material, a novel state that was only recently proposed by theorists.

New technique allows robotic 'nanobiopsies' of living cells

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have developed a robotic "nanobiopsy" system that can extract tiny samples from inside a living cell without killing it. The single-cell nanobiopsy technique is a powerful tool for scientists working to understand the dynamic processes that occur within living cells.
