Carbon nanotubes can make home refrigeration more accessible for low-income households  nanowerk · 1 day
Researchers replaced widely-used, but environmentally unfriendly, R134a refrigerant with the more energy-efficient R600a. They dosed R600a with multi-walled carbon nanotubes. more
Single-molecule transport kinetics of a glutamate transporter homolog shows static disorder  Science Magazine · 2 days
Kinetic properties of membrane transporters are typically poorly defined because high-resolution functional assays analogous to single-channel recordings are lacking. Here, we measure single-molecule transport kinetics of... more

Cosmic rays throw up surprises, again Ana Lopes abelchio Fri, 05/29/2020 - 12:23 The AMS detector on the International Space Station (Image: NASA) Ever since astronauts attached the 7.5 tonne AMS detector to the International Space... more
A new view on how tissues flow in the embryo  PHYS.ORG · 2 days
As embryos develop, tissues flow and reorganize dramatically on timescales as brief as minutes. This reorganization includes epithelial tissues that cover outer surfaces and inner linings of organs... more
Smart windows that self-illuminate on rainy days  PHYS.ORG · 2 days
Smart windows that automatically change colors depending on the intensity of sunlight are gaining attention as they can reduce energy bills by blocking the sun's visible rays during summer. But what about windows that... more
Making matter out of light: high-power laser simulations point the way  PHYS.ORG · 2 days
A few minutes into the life of the universe, colliding emissions of light energy created the first particles of matter and antimatter. We are familiar with... more
Researchers create active material out of microscopic spinning particles  PHYS.ORG · 2 days
At the atomic level, a glass of water and a spoonful of crystalline salt couldn't look more different. Water atoms move around freely and randomly, while salt crystals are locked... more
Strengthening of the Kuroshio current by intensifying tropical cyclones  Science Magazine · 3 days
A positive feedback mechanism between tropical cyclones (TCs) and climate warming can be seen by examining TC-induced energy and potential vorticity (PV) changes of oceanic geostrophic eddies. We found that... more
Researchers explore potential treatment for mitochondrial diseases  PHYS.ORG · 3 days
Huntington's. Parkinson's. Muscular dystrophy. Lou Gehrig's. These diseases share a common cause that devastatingly robs sufferers of their energy, muscle control, and in the case of Huntington's, their sanity. But now, a group of... more
Fresh antimatter study will bolster future indirect dark matter searches  PHYS.ORG · 3 days
The ALICE collaboration has presented new results on the production rates of antideuterons based on data collected at the highest collision energy delivered so far at the Large... more
Coronavirus: a growing number of people are avoiding news  PHYS.ORG · 3 days
When the coronavirus pandemic really started to take hold in the UK in March, news consumption increased, as in many other countries. But, since then, our research shows that an... more
Making nuclear energy cost-competitive  MIT · 4 days
Three MIT teams to explore novel ways to reduce operations and maintenance costs of advanced nuclear reactors. more
Designing a flexible material to protect buildings, military personnel  SCIENCE DAILY · 4 days
Shake, rattle and roll. Even though they are miles from the epicenter of an earthquake, buildings can collapse due to how an earthquake energy makes the ground shake and rattle.... more
Platelet-derived porous nanomotor for thrombus therapy  Science Magazine · 4 days
The treatment difficulties of venous thrombosis include short half-life, low utilization, and poor penetration of drugs at thrombus site. Here, we develop one kind of mesoporous/macroporous silica/platinum nanomotors with platelet membrane (PM) modification (MMNM/PM) for sequentially... more
A biomimetic platelet based on assembling peptides initiates artificial coagulation  Science Magazine · 4 days
Platelets play a critical role in the regulation of coagulation, one of the essential processes in life, attracting great attention. However, mimicking platelets for in vivo artificial coagulation... more
Surface waves control bacterial attachment and formation of biofilms in thin layers  Science Magazine · 4 days
Formation of bacterial biofilms on solid surfaces within a fluid starts when bacteria attach to the substrate. Understanding environmental factors affecting the attachment and... more
A potential explanation for urban smog: Aerosol particle growth higher in cold climates  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
The effect of nitric acid on aerosol particles in the atmosphere may offer an explanation for the smog seen engulfing cities on... more
Novel antiviral, antibacterial surface can reduce hospital-acquired infections  NEWS MEDICAL · 4 days
The novel coronavirus pandemic has caused an increased demand for antimicrobial treatments that can keep surfaces clean, particularly in health care settings. more
How will we receive signals from interstellar probes like Starshot?  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
In a few decades, the Breakthrough Starshot initiative hopes to send a sailcraft to the neighboring system of Alpha Centauri. Using a lightsail and a directed-energy laser array,... more
New method for capturing carbon via root exudates in wild forests  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
It is well known that plants use carbon dioxide obtained from the air in photosynthesis to use as energy and grow. Naoki Makita and Maiko Akatsuki... more
High-speed femtosecond laser plasmonic lithography of graphene oxide film  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
Graphene analogues such as graphene oxide (GO) and its reduced forms (rGO) are fascinating carbon materials due to the complementary properties endowed by the sp3-sp2 interconversion, revealing the substitutability and... more
Scientists propose novel electrode for efficient artificial synthesis of ammonia  PHYS.ORG · 4 days
Ammonia (NH3) is an important chemical in the industry and agriculture as well as an emerging energy carrier with large hydrogen content. more
