Does probability come from quantum physics?

Ever since Austrian scientist Erwin Schrodinger put his unfortunate cat in a box, his fellow physicists have been using something called quantum theory to explain and understand the nature of waves and particles. But a new paper makes the case that these quantum fluctuations actually are responsible for the probability of all actions, with far-reaching implications for theories of the universe.

New modeling approach transforms imaging technologies

Researchers are improving the performance of technologies ranging from medical CT scanners to digital cameras using a system of models to extract specific information from huge collections of data and then reconstructing images like a jigsaw puzzle. The new approach is called model-based iterative reconstruction, or MBIR.

New findings on the structure of graphite oxides in alcohols

The structure of graphite oxide surprisingly expands when cooled in methanol or ethanol. Also, graphite oxide selectively absorbs methanol from water-methanol mixtures. Two new studies provide knowledge on new properties of oxidized graphite and graphene.

Light-emitting nanotriangles may have applications in optical technology

For the first time, scientists have created single layers of a naturally occurring rare mineral called tungstenite, or WS2. The resulting sheet of stacked sulfur and tungsten atoms forms a honeycomb pattern of triangles that have been shown to have unusual light-emitting, or photoluminescent, properties.

Nanosensoren unterstützen Therapie von Hautkrebs

Forscher an der Uni Basel haben eine neuartige diagnostische Methode entwickelt, die mit nanomechanischen Sensoren in Form von mikroskopisch kleinen Federbalken die Ribonukleinsäure (RNA) von Krebszellen analysiert und somit gesunde Zellen von Krebszellen unterscheiden kann.
