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.
Bioengineers at UC Berkeley say their smartphone-enabled sensor can detect volatile chemicals by mimicking the color-changing abilities of turkeys, who can shift dramatically from reds to blues to whites.
Researchers say their proof-of-concept is a major step toward designing a nanocage that carries medicine around the body and targets specific diseased cells.
A major breakthrough in storage technology could dramatically change our perception of data preservation.
Researchers have been able to view a strand of DNA through an electron microscope by stringing it between microscopic silicon pillars.
This porous material is far more sensitive than the current sensors used by bomb squads to identify gases from nitrogen-based explosives. It also detects leaks of dangerous industrial gases.
The new sensor's key element is a transparent film of carbon nano-springs, created by spraying nanotubes onto a thin layer of silicone, enabling the sensor to stretch and bounce back sans wrinkles.
New program helps predict complex 3D structures based on a given DNA template, opening the door to developing more targeted drug delivery systems, synthetic photocells, and more.
Road Trip 2010: CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman visits IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center in order to get a sense of how Big Blue expects to stay ahead of its competition--and help its customers and clients.
Batteries get all the attention when it comes to electric vehicles and grid storage, but ultracapacitor companies say the bursts of power they provide can play a role.
