Nearly one year ago today, the LIGO
Collaboration announced the detection of gravitational waves, once again
confirming Einstein's theory of General Relativity. This important discovery by
the Advanced Laser ...
A physicist has made an important
revision to a software tool used to design fusion experiments known as
stellarators. The new method results in designs that create a magnetic field
suitable for confining blazing-hot ...
Imagine patterning and visualizing
silicon at the atomic level, something which, if done successfully, will
revolutionize the quantum and classical computing industry. A team of
scientists has done just that, led by a ...
Cancer cells have been observed being
targeted and killed from the inside with metal-based compound, report
researchers. The compound, Organo-Osmium FY26, attacks the weakest part of
cancer cells. FY26 is 50x more ...
It’s all about the layers, say
scientists. Encapsulating a drug in corn protein nanoparticles and then
covering with them milk protein can make children’s medications better tasting
Most of us take turning the lights on
for granted. In reality, the energy we draw from the electrical grid to
brighten homes, freeze food and watch TV is part of a complicated and
widespread system. Understanding that ...
Researchers have developed a new
approach to dynamically tune the micro- and nano-scale roughness of atomically
thin MoS2, and consequently the appropriate degree of hydrophobicity for
various potential MoS2-based ...
A new flow battery has been developed
that stores energy in organic molecules dissolved in neutral pH water. This new
chemistry allows for a non-toxic, non-corrosive battery with an exceptionally
long lifetime and ...
