A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards.
Many methods already exist for doing this, but they tend to be clumsy and destructive, not allowing researchers to precisely control how and when they insert the DNA or requiring them to burn through large numbers of cells before they can get it into one.
Molecules could soon be "scanned" in a fashion similar to imaging screenings at airports, thanks to a detector developed by University of Pittsburgh physicists.
Want a fast switch? Use magnetite. Scientists have clocked the fastest-possible electrical switching in the naturally magnetic mineral. The findings could have huge implications for driving innovations in the tiny transistors that control the flow of electricity across silicon chips.
The use of graphene in telecommunications could dramatically accelerate internet speeds by up to a hundred times, according to new research.
Using nanostructured glass, scientists at the University of Southampton have, for the first time, experimentally demonstrated the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional digital data by femtosecond laser writing. The storage allows unprecedented parameters including 360 TB/disc data ca...
