High-speed quantum encryption may help secure the future internet

(Duke University) Quantum encryption may be one step closer to wide-scale use thanks to a new system developed by scientists at Duke University, The Ohio State University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Their system is capable ofShow More Summary

Physicists develop faster way to make Bose-Einstein condensates

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT physicists have invented a new technique to cool atoms into condensates, which is faster than the conventional method and conserves a large fraction of the original atoms. The team used a new...Show More Summary

Push to twist: Achieving the classically impossible in human-made material

(American Association for the Advancement of Science) Researchers have designed a metamaterial that can twist to the right or the left in response to a straight, solid push.

New batteries with better performance and improved safety

(Université de Genève) Currently the most important technology for batteries is the lithium-ion battery technology: but the technology is expensive and contains a flammable liquid. To satisfy the growing demand from emerging markets,...Show More Summary

Earplugs unavoidable for musicians in the orchestra and at home

(Eindhoven University of Technology) Many musicians suffer ear damage. Professional orchestras have therefore taken measures in recent years to reduce the sound levels. Studies now reveal that physical measures, like placing screens or creating more space, have little effect. Show More Summary

Communicating at the speed of light

(University of Delaware) Engineer Tingyi Gu is developing thin two-dimensional materials, made atomic layer by atomic layer, that may enable communications at higher speed and lower power consumption than previously realized.

AAAS announces animal and avian sciences professor Iqbal Hamza as a 2017 Fellow

(University of Maryland) Dr. Iqbal Hamza of the University of Maryland has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as an AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. Show More Summary

MSU to establish training program to address shortage in accelerator scientists, engineers

(Michigan State University Facility for Rare Isotope Beams) Michigan State University is establishing an Accelerator Science and Engineering Traineeship program to address a national shortage in accelerator scientists and engineers.Show More Summary

Underwater acoustic localization of marine mammals and vehicles

(IMDEA Networks Institute) Researchers at IMDEA Networks (Spain) in collaboration with University of Haifa (Israel) have developed an underwater acoustic system for the localization of marine mammals, underwater vehicles and other sound sources in the ocean, using no more than a single hydrophone (basically an underwater microphone) as a receiver.

Five Brookhaven Lab scientists named 2017 American Physical Society Fellows

(DOE/Brookhaven National Laboratory) Anatoly Frenkel, Morgan May, Rachid Nouicer, Eric Stach, and Peter Steinberg were recognized for their outstanding contributions to astrophysics, materials physics, and nuclear physics.

Sclerosis medicine can fight multi-resistant bacteria

(Aarhus University) A surprising discovery shows that a widely used and 20-year-old medicine used to treat multiple sclerosis can also beat a type of multi-resistant bacteria for which there are currently only a few effective drugs. The result may be of significance for the treatment of patients and in the battle against resistant bacteria.

ID microstructure of stock useful in financial crisis

(Springer) A German team from the University of Duisburg-Essen have analysed the statistical regularities and irregularities in the recent order flow of 96 different NASDAQ stocks. Since prices are strongly correlated during financial crises, they evolve in a way that is similar to what happens to nerve signals during epileptic seizures. Show More Summary

Tiny robots step closer to treating hard-to-reach parts of the body

(University of Edinburgh) Tiny robots could be developed to diagnose illness and deliver treatments in hard-to-reach parts of the human body.

New competitiveness for the European steel industry

(VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland) The Morse project, which began in the autumn, will improve the products, business operations and competitiveness, as well as the energy and raw material efficiency, of the European steel industry.

Lightning, with a chance of antimatter

(Kyoto University) Researchers find that lightning strikes causes photonuclear reactions in the atmosphere, creating antimatter.

Bridging the gap

(University of California - Santa Barbara) Researchers develop a potentially low-cost, low-emissions technology that can convert methane without forming carbon dioxide.

Study shows how to get sprayed metal coatings to stick

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Research from MIT reveals the best way to make metal particles stick to a surface in a spray-coating process. Surprisingly, melting hurts rather than helps.

Are lipid-based products more effective for treating dry eye disease?

(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) New treatments for dry eye disease that deliver lipids to the ocular surface are designed to more closely mimic the important tear film lipid layer at the air-water interface in the ...

The art and science of glassblowing (video)

(American Chemical Society) If you've ever tapped a screen to send a tweet, opted for a glass bottled soda because of taste, or drooled over art glass in a gallery, then your life has been changed for the better by the transparent yet durable combination of sand and simple chemicals we call glass.
