The images are a “huge step forward” in understanding disorders such as autism, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s Disease.
The long-term aim that the researchers have is the creation of so-called neuromorphic computer architectures – i.e. computers which replicate the human brain. One central feature is the elimination of the separation between processor and data storage. “We are also computing with light – and not with electrons, as is the case with traditional computers”
Nano-technology company Dotz Nano (ASX: DTZ) has received its first major sales order for its graphene quantum dots worth A$135,000.
In a mind-boggling world first, a team of biologists and security researchers have successfully infected a computer with a strand of DNA.
A supercomputer surpasses the proposed limit of using conventional machines to simulate quantum computers
Nanomaterials are showing great potential in biomedicine since they can interact precisely with living systems down to the level of cells, subcellular structures and even individual molecules.
A ‘Molecular Trap’ for Capturing Radioactive Iodides in Nuclear Waste
Terahertz radiation has a wide range of uses and can occur in everything from radio astronomy to medicine. The term refers to the electromagnetic waves whose frequencies range from 100 gigahertz to 10 terahertz. Demand for higher bandwidth in wireless communications and depiction for security applications has led to intensified research on systems and components intended for terahertz frequencies.
A flexible, biodegradable optical fiber that can deliver light into the body for medical applications is the latest work of a collaboration between electrical engineers and biomaterials engineers in Penn State's Materials Research Institute.
By evolving an entirely new gene editing enzyme, biologists have created a highly precise tool for changing the code of DNA that should also be safer too
