A popular tool to trace Earth's oxygen history can give false positives

(Georgia Institute of Technology) If someone cries 'Eureka!' because it looks like oxygen appeared in Earth's ancient atmosphere long before the body of evidence indicated, be careful. If it was a chromium isotope system reading that caused the enthusiasm, it might need to be curbed.

Transfer technique produces wearable gallium nitride gas sensors

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A transfer technique based on thin sacrificial layers of boron nitride could allow high-performance gallium nitride gas sensors to be grown on sapphire substrates and then transferred to metallic or flexible polymer support materials. Show More Summary

Rousing masses to fight cancer with open source machine learning

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Sharing is caring in the fight against cancer with this new open source software project to predict cancer drug effectiveness. Georgia Tech researchers have kicked off the project with a program they tested to be about 85% effective in making predictions in individual patient treatments in their new study. Show More Summary

Daydreaming is good. It means you're smart

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A new study from the Georgia Institute of Technology suggests that daydreaming during meetings isn't necessarily a bad thing. It might be a sign that you're really smart and creative. People with efficient brains may have too much brain capacity to stop their minds from wandering.

'Y' a protein unicorn might matter in glaucoma

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A protein shaped like a 'Y' makes scientists do a double-take and may change the way they think about a protein sometimes implicated in glaucoma. The Y is a centerpiece in myocilin, binding four other components nicknamed propellers together like balloons on strings.

International patients increasingly seek in vitro fertilization treatment in US

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A new study from the Georgia Institute of Technology and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that the use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) in the US by non-US residents is growing. Show More Summary

Navigational view of the brain thanks to powerful X-rays

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Imagine Google Earth with only the street view and a far-away satellite view but not much of a map view. Brain imaging, for the most part, has been missing just that, and a lot of research on how the brain computes happens on that map-like level. Show More Summary

New software speeds origami structure designs

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new computer-aided approach that streamlines the design process for origami-based structures, making it easier for engineers and scientists...Show More Summary

Paper-based supercapacitor uses metal nanoparticles to boost energy density

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Using a simple layer-by-layer coating technique, researchers from the US and Korea have developed a paper-based flexible supercapacitor that could be used to help power wearable devices. The device uses...Show More Summary

Fight against top killer atherosclerosis garners acclaimed NIH award

(Georgia Institute of Technology) No single disorder kills more people than atherosclerosis, and hopeful experimental treatments with 'good cholesterols' have failed in human trials. New research reapproaches them with carefully engineered cholesterols in an organ-on-a-chip and in highly reproducible experiments. Show More Summary

Ammonia emissions unlikely to be causing extreme China haze

(Georgia Institute of Technology) As China struggles to find ways to remedy the noxious haze that lingers over Beijing and other cities in the winter, researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology have cast serious doubt on one proposed cause: high levels of ammonia in the air.

Running roaches, flapping moths create a new physics of organisms

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Sand-swimming lizards, slithering robotic snakes, dusk-flying moths and running roaches all have one thing in common: They're increasingly being studied by physicists interested in understanding the shared strategies these creatures have developed to overcome the challenges of moving though their environments.

Rogue wave analysis supports investigation of the El Faro sinking

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A new analysis done to support the investigation into the 2015 sinking of the El Faro cargo ship has calculated the likelihood of a massive rogue wave during Hurricane Joaquin in October of that year -- and demonstrated a new technique for evaluating the probability of rogue waves over space and time.
