It's one thing for humans to lose track of time, but what happens when our clocks do In an increasingly networked world, devices need to be more punctual than ever. To keep them running as we expect, they...
An inexpensive way to make products incorporating nanoparticles -- such as high-performance energy devices or sophisticated diagnostic tests -- has been developed by researchers. The process could speed the commercial development of devices, materials and technologies that exploit the...
It's often easy to imagine balloons soaring or butterflies fluttering across a still image, but realizing this vision through computer animation is easier said than done. Now, a team of researchers has developed a new tool that makes...
By focusing light down to the size of an atom, scientists at the University of California, Irvine have produced the first images of a molecule's normal modes of vibration -- the internal motions that drive the chemistry of...
Seven of the ten most frequent medications contain chiral agents. These are molecules that occur in right- or left-handed forms. During chemical synthesis both forms usually occur in equal parts and have to be separated afterward, because chirality...
In the cells of every living organism -- humans, birds, bees, roses and even bacteria -- proteins vibrate with microscopic motions that help them perform vital tasks ranging from cell repair to photosynthesis. These life-giving tremors are the topic...
Access to clean water remains one of the biggest challenges facing humankind. A breakthrough by engineers at The University of Texas at Austin may offer a new solution through solar-powered technology that absorbs moisture from the air and...
Images taken using an atomic force microscope have allowed researchers to observe, for the first time, the flexible and dynamic changes that occur on the surfaces of 'porous coordination polymer' crystals when guest molecules are introduced. The findings,...
Scientists are discovering new two-dimensional materials at a rapid pace, but they don't always immediately know what those materials can do. Researchers at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering say they can find out fast by feeding basic details...
Beneath many cities are complex networks of optical fibres that carry data, encoded in pulses of light, to offices and homes. Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singtel, Asia's leading communications technology group, have demonstrated...
