A new application note discusses how atomic force microscope (AFM) systems can be used in various disciplines of biological research, such as imaging of live cells and bacteria, single-cell manipulation, or force spectroscopy on molecules, cells, or tissue.
Concrete, the most widely used material in the construction industry, has a history dating back to the Roman Empire. Now, engineers at the University of Pittsburgh are reimagining its design for the 21st century.
Owing to the global trend of utilizing electric vehicles, there has been a surge in demand for next-generation secondary batteries with higher capacity and faster charging than the lithium-ion batteries currently in use.
World-first ‘phase change inks’ that could transform how we heat and cool buildings, homes and cars – to achieve sophisticated ‘passive climate’ control – have been developed, with enormous potential to help reduce energy use and global greenhouse gas emissions.
ChatGPT's impact extends beyond the education sector and is causing significant changes in other areas. The artificial intelligence (AI) language model is recognized for its ability to perform various tasks, including paper writing, translation, coding, and more, all through question-and-answer-based interactions.
Scientists from the National Institute of Education/Nanyang Technological University of Singapore developed a method for converting fruit wastes such as coconut husks, orange peels, and banana peels into a solar absorber made of MXene for efficient water desalination process.
A research team led by Professor Kelvin Yeung Wai-kwok from the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, School of Clinical Medicine, LKS Faculty of Medicine, the University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) has invented a non-invasive and non-antibiotics technology to effectively reduce methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in bony tissue.
The secret to a perfect croissant is the layers—as many as possible, each one interspersed with butter. Similarly, a new material with promise for new applications is made of many extremely thin layers of metal, between which scientists can slip different ions for various purposes.
Nickelates are a material class that has excited scientists because of its recently discovered superconducting ability, and now a new study led by Cornell has changed where scientists thought this ability might originate, providing a blueprint for how more functional versions might be engineered in the future.
Spin, a quantum property of particles, can be controlled using light waves to store information. This is conventionally achieved using a uniformly polarized light beam. Recently, researchers from Japan successfully gener...
In uptownBasel, 30 quantum technology luminaries ensured a full house and shared exciting new insights at the first US-Switzerland Quantum Symposium, from March 27 to 28, 2023.
Graphene is the most powerful of all materials. Furthermore, it is extremely good at carrying heat and electrical currents, making it one of the most unique and adaptable materials known. Due to all of these factors, the discovery of graphene was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010.
Abberior, a leading provider of cutting-edge imaging technologies, announced today that they have placed a super-resolution STED microscope at MBC BioLabs, the leading San Francisco Bay Area biotech incubator network.
Quantum Science, developer of the world-leading INFIQ® quantum dot technology, will share insights into its export journey next week at an event helping to boost local businesses.
