Nanoscale Impurities Improve Performance of Bi2212 Superconductor

Nanoscale Impurities Improve Performance of Bi2212 Superconductor

Research from North Carolina State University finds that impurities can hurt performance – or possibly provide benefits – in a key superconductive material that is expected to find use in a host of applications, including future particle colliders. The size of the impurities determines whether they help or hinder the material's performance. [More]
Aqueous Nanoparticle Solution Repairs Deep Wounds

Aqueous Nanoparticle Solution Repairs Deep Wounds

A significant breakthrough could revolutionize surgical practice and regenerative medicine. A team led by Ludwik Leibler from the Laboratoire Matière Molle et Chimie (CNRS/ESPCI Paris Tech) and Didier Letourneur from the Laboratoire Recherche Vasculaire Translationnelle (INSERM/Universités Paris Diderot and Paris 13), has just demonstrated that the principle of adhesion by aqueous solutions of nanoparticles can be used in vivo to repair soft-tissue organs and tissues.

Fluorescence Microscopy Enables Real-Time Monitoring of Redox State in Mitochondria of Live Cells

In the April issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine a multidisciplinary research team led by Drs. Rex Gaskins and Paul Kenis in the Institute of Genomic Biology (IGB) on the campus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign describe their recent work on subcellular redox homeostasis. [More]
Atom Probe Helps Date 4.4 Billion-Year-Old Zircon

Atom Probe Helps Date 4.4 Billion-Year-Old Zircon

It's a scientific axiom: big claims require extra-solid evidence. So there were skeptics in 2001 when University of Wisconsin-Madison geoscience professor John Valley dated an ancient crystal found in Australia to 4.4 billion years ago. The date, after all, was only 100 million years after Earth started to solidify from a ball of molten rock. [More]
EPSRC Awards £2.5 Million for Development of Further Applications for Metamaterials

EPSRC Awards £2.5 Million for Development of Further Applications for Metamaterials

Research into using metamaterials in electromagnetics has already demonstrated an invisibility cloak. To take these ideas further into allied areas of advanced materials, £2.5 Think about the circular ripples caused when a pebble is thrown into a pond. A square rock in the water causes the circular pattern to be disturbed, creating a ‘shadow’ region to the right of the rock. [More]

Nanosale Reduction of Thickness Changes Lanthanum Nickelate from a Metal to an Insulator

Nanosale Reduction of Thickness Changes Lanthanum Nickelate from a Metal to an Insulator

Ever-shrinking electronic devices could get down to atomic dimensions with the help of transition metal oxides, a class of materials that seems to have it all: superconductivity, magnetoresistance and other exotic properties. These possibilities have scientists excited to understand everything about these materials, and to find new ways to control their properties at the most fundamental levels. [More]
