Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a graphene device that’s thinner than a human hair but has a depth of special traits. It easily switches from a superconducting material that conducts electricity without losing any energy, to an insulator that resists the flow of electric current, [...]

Programmed Nanorobots Seek And Destroy Cancer Tumors

Nanorobots have been successfully programmed to shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply. This major advancement came from Arizona State University (ASU) scientists, in collaboration with researchers from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST), of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The demonstration of the technology, the first-of-its-kind study in mammals, used breast [...]

Physicists have looked for deviations from standard quantum mechanics, testing whether quantum mechanics requires a more complex set of mathematical rules. A research team led by Philip Walther at the University of Vienna designed a photonic experiment using exotic metamaterials, which were fabricated at the University of California Berkeley. Their experiment supports standard quantum mechanics [...]

The first ever optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of cubic meter volumes have been produced, through an industry-academic collaboration. The advance could open up many new uses for OCT in industry, manufacturing and medicine. It also marks a milestone toward developing a high-speed, low-cost optical coherence tomography system on a single integrated circuit chip. James [...]

Early Universe Cosmic Microwave Background 3D Printed

A 3D printed map of the oldest light in the universe has been created by researchers at Imperial College London, and you can download the files and your print your own baby universe. The cosmic microwave background is a glow that the universe has in the microwave range that maps the oldest light in the [...]
