    Metallic hydrogen is one of the rarest materials on Earth, yet more than 80 percent of planets—including Jupiter, Saturn, and hundreds of extrasolar planets—are composed of this exotic form of matter.

  2. First Nanometer-Scale Measurements Of The Folded Structure Of Biomolecules In Liquids
    7/23/2018

    Tinkering with a method they helped develop over the last few years, scientists have for the first time measured at the nanometer scale the characteristic patterns of folds that give proteins their three-dimensional shape in water.

  3. New Quantum Random Number Generator Could Improve Security For Portable Devices
    7/23/2018

    Researchers have shown that a chip-based device measuring a millimeter square could be used to generate quantum-based random numbers at gigabit per second speeds.

  4. Opto Diode Announces Extreme Ultraviolet, Directly-Deposited Thin-Film Filter Photodiodes For Scientific Applications
    7/20/2018

    Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces two photodetectors, the AXUV100TF030 and AXUV100TF400, with 100 mm2 active areas and directly deposited thin-film filters for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) detection.

  5. Uncovering The Interplay Between Two Famous Quantum Effects
    7/20/2018

    The Casimir force and superconductivity are two well-known quantum effects. Separately, these phenomena have been thoroughly studied. But what happens when you bring the two effects together in a single experiment? For the very first time, researchers at Delft University of Technology have done just that.

  6. Public Availability Of Largest Multi-Lesion Medical Imaging Dataset
