  2. New Lab Technique Simultaneously Reveals Structure And Function Of Proteins Critical In DNA Repair
    4/17/2015

    By combining two highly innovative experimental techniques, scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have for the first time simultaneously observed the structure and the correlated function of specific proteins critical in the repair of DNA, providing definitive answers to some highly debated questions, and opening up new avenues of inquiry and exciting new possibilities for biological engineering.

  3. Light In A Spin
    4/16/2015

    Light must travel in a straight line and at a constant speed, or so the laws of nature suggest. Now, researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg have demonstrated that laser light traveling along a helical path through space, can accelerate and decelerate as it spins into the distance.

  4. Engineer Improves Rechargeable Batteries With MoS2 Nano 'Sandwich'
    4/16/2015

    The key to better cellphones and other rechargeable electronics may be in tiny "sandwiches" made of nanosheets, according to mechanical engineering research from Kansas State University.

  5. FLIR Releases ResearchIR 4.2 Software For Research And Science Applications
    4/15/2015

    FLIR Systems announced the release of version 4.2 of its ResearchIR software. ResearchIR 4.2 provides researchers and scientists a powerful tool for viewing, acquiring, analyzing, and sharing the thermal data captured with FLIR’s Scientific and R&D cameras.

  6. Quantum Cryptography At The Speed Of Light: Researchers Design First All-Photonic Repeaters
    4/15/2015

    Imagine having your MRI results sent directly to your phone, with no concern over the security of your private health data. Or knowing your financial information was safe on a server halfway around the world.

  7. NIST Tightens The Bounds On The Quantum Information 'Speed Limit'
    4/14/2015

    If you’re designing a new computer, you want it to solve problems as fast as possible. Just how fast is possible is an open question when it comes to quantum computers, but physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have narrowed the theoretical limits for where that “speed limit” is.

  8. Graphene Speeds Up Light-To-Electricity Conversion
    4/14/2015

    The efficient conversion of light into electricity plays a crucial role in many technologies, ranging from cameras to solar cells. It also forms an essential step in data communication applications, since it allows for information carried by light to be converted into electrical information that can be processed in electrical circuits.

  9. NIST Develops NMR ‘Fingerprinting’ For Monoclonal Antibodies
    4/14/2015

    National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) have demonstrated the most precise method yet to measure the structural configuration of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), an important factor in determining the safety and efficacy of these biomolecules as medicines.

  10. Cree Introduces Industry's Highest Performing LED Module
