Not an illusion: Clever use of mirrors boosts performance of light-sheet microscope

(Marine Biological Laboratory) Using a simple 'mirror trick' and not-so-simple computational analysis, scientists affiliated with the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have considerably improved the speed, efficiency, and resolution of a light-sheet microscope, with broad applications for enhanced imaging of live cells and embryos.

Argonne to install Comanche system to explore ARM technology for HPC

(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Argonne National Laboratory is collaborating with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide system software expertise and a development ecosystem for a future high-performance computing (HPC) system based on 64-bit ARM processors.

Inner clock: Biologists research the mechanism of an auxiliary clock

(Bielefeld University) In December, the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology will be awarded for the identification of genes that control the inner clock. The honored academics examined fruit flies to determine the biorhythm. Biochemist Professor Dr. Show More Summary

Caltech and AT&T present quantum networks R&D program at Supercomputing17 in Denver

(INQNET ) The Alliance for Quantum Technologies (AQT), founded by Caltech and AT&T in May 2017 in collaboration with national laboratories and industry partners, is presenting the 'INtelligent Quantum NEtworks & Technologies' (INQNET) research program at Supercomputing 2017 in Denver (Nov. Show More Summary

Research shows drones could help crop management take off

(University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture) Initial results of an ongoing study show that aerial imagery produced by multi-spectral sensors as well as less-expensive digital cameras may improve accuracy and efficiency of plant stand assessment in cotton.

Scientific advances can make it easier to recycle plastics

(University of Houston) Researchers report new approaches could dramatically increase the amount of plastic waste that can be successfully recycled.

Carefully crafted light pulses control neuron activity

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Specially tailored, ultrafast pulses of light can trigger neurons to fire and could one day help patients with light-sensitive circadian or mood problems, according to a new study in mice at the University of Illinois. This study is the first demonstration of using coherent control to regulate function in a living cell.

Strain-free epitaxy of germanium film on mica

(American Institute of Physics) Germanium was the material of choice in the early history of electronic devices, and due to its high charge carrier mobility, it's making a comeback. It's generally grown on expensive single-crystal substrates, adding another challenge to making it sustainably viable for most applications. Show More Summary

New interdisciplinary research program in biomedical innovation law

(University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Law) The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded a grant of DKK 35 million to Timo Minssen, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen for establishing a Collaborative Research Programme inShow More Summary

Electrochemistry opens up novel access to important classes of substances

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Chemists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany have succeeded in overcoming the problem of electrochemical polymer formation and in developing a sustainable and efficient synthesis strategy for these important products for the first time.

Anti-tumor and Immune-potentiating Enterococcus faecalis-2001 ?-glucans

(Bentham Science Publishers) Background: Enterococcus faecalis 2001 is a probiotic lactic acid bacterium and has been used as a biological response modifier (BRM). From physiological limitation of bacterial preservation in storage and safety, the live E. faecalis 2001 has been heat-treated and the BRM components containing high level of ?-glucan, named EF-2001, were prepared.

Semiconducting carbon nanotubes can reduce noise in carbon nanotube interconnects

(Bentham Science Publishers) This paper presents reduction of crosstalk and noise in CNT bundle interconnects. We propose the use of small diameter semiconducting CNTs as electromagnetic interference shields for CNT bundle interconnects.

No more deer in the headlight: Study finds large mammals do use road crossing structures

(Frontiers) A pilot study finds that large mammals are more likely to use wildlife crossing structures than move past a random location in the surrounding habitat. Animal movement also varied between crossing structures in different locations, suggesting that location might be more important than design. Show More Summary

Evaluation of novel hybrid membranes for carbon capture

(Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology) Hybrid materials known as mixed matrix membranes are considered a promising approach to capture carbon dioxide and mitigate against global warming. These materials are derived from a polymer combined with porous nanoparticles. Show More Summary

Scientists capture colliding organic nanoparticles on video for first time

(Northwestern University) A Northwestern University research team is the first to capture on video organic nanoparticles colliding and fusing together. This unprecedented view of 'chemistry in motion' will aid Northwestern nanoscientists...Show More Summary

The future of cell culture: A new continuous bioprocess developed

(Newcastle University) Scientists at Newcastle University, UK have developed a revolutionary technique to allow the continuous production and collection of cells.

New theory rewrites opening moments of Chernobyl disaster

(Taylor & Francis Group) A brand-new theory of the opening moments during the Chernobyl disaster, the most severe nuclear accident in history, based on additional analysis is presented for the first time in the journal Nuclear Technology, an official journal of the American Nuclear Society.

'Ion billiards' cue novel material synthesis method

(Hokkaido University) A team of Hokkaido University researchers has developed a novel material synthesis method called proton-driven ion introduction (PDII) which utilizes a phenomenon similar to 'ion billiards.' The new method could pave the way for creating numerous new materials, thus drastically advancing materials sciences.

New method analyzes corn kernel characteristics

(University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences) An ear of corn averages about 800 kernels. A traditional field method to estimate the number of kernels on the ear is to manually count the number of rows and multiply by the number of kernels in one length of the ear. Show More Summary

Researchers receive DOD grant for implantable muscle stimulator

(Case Western Reserve University) Researchers have received a $1.8M, three-year grant from the US Department of Defense to develop an implantable muscle stimulator for preventing pressure ulcers and deep tissue injuries to the buttocks. Show More Summary
