200 years of sunspot observations used by University of Warwick researchers to create ‘sun clock’ Sun clock pinpoints times of sharp switch on...

Butterfly-Inspired Nanotech Makes Natural-Looking Pictures on Digital Screens

Taking inspiration from nature’s nanotech that creates the stunning color of butterfly wings, a University of Central Florida researcher is creating technology to make...

Synthetic red blood cells mimic natural ones, and have new abilities

Scientists have tried to develop synthetic red blood cells that mimic the favorable properties of natural ones, such as flexibility, oxygen transport and long...

Observing topological edge states using moiré patterns

NUS physicists have found a new way to create and tune the topological edge states in two-dimensional (2D) topological insulators (TIs) for potential spintronic...

New optical technique provides more efficient probe of nanomagnet dynamics

The performance of magnetic storage and memory devices depends on the magnetization dynamics of nanometer-scale magnetic elements called nanomagnets. Researchers at UC Santa Cruz...

Particles trapped in twisted materials and quantum fingerprints identified

This key paper has identified how to trap interlayer excitons (IXs) and identified their quantum fingerprints. The IXs are trapped by the interaction of...

Exchange of Arms between Chromosomes Using Molecular Scissors

The CRISPR/Cas molecular scissors work like a fine surgical instrument and can be used to modify genetic information in plants. The research teams of...

Physicists measure a short-lived radioactive molecule for first time

Researchers at MIT and elsewhere have combined the power of a super collider with techniques of laser spectroscopy to precisely measure a short-lived radioactive...

Scientists captured the movements of electrons and nuclei in a light...

Using a high-speed “electron camera” at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists have simultaneously captured the movements of electrons and nuclei...

Towable sensor free-falls to help measure the ocean’s response to climate...

The motion of the ocean is often thought of in horizontal terms, for instance in the powerful currents that sweep around the planet, or...

Scientists are using light waves to accelerate the unique properties of...

Scientists are using light waves to accelerate supercurrents and access the unique properties of the quantum world, including forbidden light emissions that one day...

Long-standing mystery of matter and antimatter may be solved

An element which could hold the key to the long-standing mystery around why there is much more matter than antimatter in our universe has...

A New Tool to Map the Flow of Info within Living...

How do cells move? Why do they move? Why do some cancer cells move slowly while others move quickly, causing a cancerous tumor to...

Researchers discover potential targets for COVID-19 therapy

A team of biochemists and virologists at Goethe University and the Frankfurt University Hospital were able to observe how human cells change upon infection...

New Comet Discovered by ESA and NASA Solar Observatory

In late May and early June, Earthlings may be able to glimpse Comet SWAN. The comet is currently faintly visible to the unaided eye...

A step-by-step recipe to produce the atomic-scale devices

Researchers have developed a step-by-step recipe for making devices at the atomic scale. With this instruction, the team led by NIST is the second in...

Cannibalism helps invading invertebrates survive severe conditions

Researchers show how cannibalism among the invasive comb jelly enables adults to survive severe conditions at the edge of their ecological range with implications for the use and evolutionary origins of cannibalism

Herpes simplex virus’s VP1-2 protein can deactivate the early immune response

Herpes simplex virus (HSV1) infections are initiated at mucosal surfaces where the virus infects epithelial cells. When HSV1 spreads from the peripheral nerves and...

Lab devises plan to reduce defects in 3D metal printing

Combining high-fidelity computer simulations with ultra-high-speed X-ray imaging, researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have discovered a strategy for reducing or even eliminating...

Researchers has now succeeded in develop an “artificial chloroplast”

For hundreds of millions of years plants have had the ability to harness carbon dioxide from the air using solar energy. The Max Planck...

The MeerKAT telescope solves mystery of ‘X’-shaped radio galaxies

Many galaxies far more active than the Milky Way have enormous twin jets of radio waves extending far into intergalactic space. Normally these go...

A next-generation optogenetic system for non-invasive stimulation of neurons

Optogenetics has revolutionized neurobiology, allowing researchers to use light to activate or deactivate neurons that are genetically modified to express a light-sensitive channel. This...

A new pathfinding CubeSat mission to gather vital space weather data

NASA has selected a new pathfinding CubeSat mission to gather data not collected since the agency flew the Dynamics Explorer in the early 1980s. The...

Researchers discover new pathomechanism of hereditary diseases in cell condensates

Repeats of individual building blocks within proteins are the cause of many hereditary diseases, but how such repeats actually cause disease is still largely...

The 14-tesla magnet fully assembled at Spallation Neutron Source

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have finished the preliminary commissioning of a new 14-tesla magnet at the...

Light propulsion of graphene-on-grid sails in microgravity

Overseas exploration and trade during the Age of Discovery (15th-17th centuries) were possible by sail technology, and deep-space exploration will require the same for...

A kind of creativity test to see how far AI can...

Most firetrucks come in red, but it’s not hard to picture one in blue. Computers aren’t nearly as creative. Their understanding of the world is...

Physicists continue a legacy of boundary-pushing experiments at the Large...
