New 3-D printing method creates shape-shifting objects (14/04/2017)

A team of researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology and two other institutions has developed a new 3-D printing method to create objects that can permanently transform into a range of different shapes in response to heat.

Bistatic laser monitor sees through fire (14/04/2017)

The creation of new materials is often accompanied with powerful illumination. Scientists are designing an advanced bistatic laser monitor that enables observing high-speed processes hidden by background lighting, e.g. at welding. The newly developed two-laser monitor makes it possible to obtain better images and even to observe X-ray processes from a safe distance.

Relocation of proteins with a new nanobody tool (14/04/2017)

A new method by which proteins can be transported to a new location in a cell has been developed by researchers. The novel tool enables scientists to study the function of proteins depending on their position by using nanobodies. The tool can be used for a wide range of proteins and in various areas of developmental biology.

Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms (14/04/2017)

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

New invention uses bacteria to purify water (06/04/2017)

A new system that uses bacteria to turn non-potable water into drinking water will be tested next week in West Vancouver prior to being installed in remote communities in Canada and beyond.

Streamlining mass production of printable electronics (06/04/2017)

While memory devices are becoming progressively more flexible, their ease of fabrication and integration in low performance applications have been generally been treated as being of secondary importance. But now, thanks to new work, this is about to change. In a new article, they present a proof of concept, using resistive memory that now paves the way for mass-producing printable electronics.

X-ray study reveals long-sought insights into potential drug target (06/04/2017)

Researchers hope to design a new generation of drugs against an array of deadly diseases. One of the key challenges is understanding a particular class of proteins adorning cell surfaces, which are the targets of the majority of pharmaceutical drugs. Scientists have now examined one promising drug target in luminous detail, using a device known as an X-ray free electron laser, or XFEL.
