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
Pixium Vision receives approval from French regulators to conduct feasibility study of its PRIMA sub-retinal implant
It could one day be used to treat a range of inherited diseases.
Thermal self-regulating nanoparticles that seek out and destroy cancer cells may sound like something pulled from the new Blade Runner movie script, but researchers at the University of Surrey have developed the therapy for use today.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the Technical University of Denmark have developed a method that makes it possible to map the individual responses of nanoparticles in different situations and contexts.
D-Wave system shows quantum computers can learn to detect particle signatures in mountains of data, but doesn't outpace conventional methods - yet.
On Aug. 17, scientists were treated to detections confirming the first measurement of a neutron star merger and its explosive aftermath.
A group of teenaged students from Cambridge, Ont., is hunting for new subatomic particles at the home of the world's largest atom smasher this week. They hope to turn up what particle physics PhDs have been unable find after decades of searching.
Renewable energy may have a cybersecurity problem. At the recent BlackHat security conference, researchers found that it was possible to hack into the software that controls many wind farms, and potentially take the turbines hostage. Now it looks like solar panels are vulnerable, too.
China might not have the lead in research but its application of secure networks is leading the way.
Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved.
