A tiny accelerator could be useful in medicine as well as basic science. Instead of speeding up beams of electrons through giant tunnels, the aim here is to build accelerators on semiconductor chips.
Imagine a box you plug into the wall that cleans your toxic air and pays you cash. That's essentially what Vanderbilt University researchers produced after discovering the blueprint for turning carbon dioxide into the most valuable material ever sold – carbon nanotubes with small diameters.
Korean researchers have developed a device that can control the speed of light. The new device is expected to accelerate the development of next-generation optical communication equipment.
We may not live in an infinite 'multiverse' of parallel universes after all.
Using Google Cloud Platform (GCP), researchers are accelerating breakthroughs and asking new questions they could never have asked before. Now GCP will be available to even more academic researchers through the new GCP research credits program.
Experiment produces thousands of entangled atoms, raising hopes that we can soon create real quantum computers.
New insights into how a gene causes damage could impact future drug development
Engineers and chemists at Hiroshima University successfully used the same technology at the core of facial recognition to design chiral crystals. This is the first study reporting the use of this technology, called logistic regression analysis, to predict which chemical groups are best for making chiral molecules.
When someone thinks about knitting, they usually don't conjure up an image of sweaters and scarves made of yarn that can power watches and lights. But that's just what one group is reporting … they have developed a rechargeable yarn battery that is waterproof and flexible. It also can be cut into pieces and still work.
In a rare move, a Houston Methodist researcher is sharing his recipe for a new, more affordable way to make nanoparticles.
New machine learning techniques can help experimentalists probe systems of particles exponentially faster than conventional, brute-force techniques
There's miniaturization, and then there's nanotechnology. Global markets are growing and multiplying for both. But it's the point of nanotech to effect desired technical solutions and outcomes with ever-smaller - much, much smaller - building blocks of materials.
