Microscopic sculptures by artist Jonty Hurwitz are so tiny that they can fit easily inside the eye of a needle, on a human hair -- or on the forehead of an ant.
A Cornell Ph.D. student in applied physics etches famous works of art -- Escher, Magritte, Matisse -- onto silicon wafers used in modern digital devices.
A meteorite from Mars that landed on Earth in 2011 contains a carbon compound that is biological in origin.
Quantum computing may someday blow away today's smartest machines. It's weird and heavy on the physics, but Microsoft thinks you can handle it.
A painting by impressionist Claude Monet has been reproduced in full colour in the microscale, thanks to a new technique that allows a palette of 300 colours.
Researchers turn to physics, not just chemistry, to help break down bacterial cell membranes and fight infections.
While lower-energy "soft" X-rays can already image living cells, the higher-energy "hard" ones that can view objects as small as a few nanometers haven't been able to -- until now.
Researchers from Canada's McGill University develop a technique for increasing the toughness of glass so it doesn't break when dropped.
Scientists at Georgia Tech say a new technique for tagging the genome and studying the RNA of a virus could help them discover better antiviral drugs and perhaps even more effective vaccines.
Researchers are improving the first nanoscale MRI technique developed at MIT in 2009 in the hopes of imaging such biological samples as viruses at extremely high resolution.
