Unexpected effect could lead to lower-power memory, computing devices Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) An expected effect, known as zero field switching, could enable lower-power memory and computing devices than presently possible.

Development of an enzymatic cycling method using pyruvate kinase Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Bentham Science Publishers) Enzyme cycling is a sensitive assay method that exploits amplification techniques. We recently developed a novel enzymatic cycling method, which utilizes both the forward and reverse reactions of creatine kinase (CK), for the quantitative determination of creatine.

3-D tissue model of developing heart could help drug safety testing for pregnant women Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Syracuse University) A Syracuse University engineering team has developed a process that combines biomaterials-based cell patterning and stem cell technology to make a 3-D tissue model that could mimic early stage human heart development. Embryotoxicity is just one potential use of the modeling platform.

Raising transparency in the online advertising ecosystem Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(IMDEA Networks Institute) The online advertising business, led by companies like Google or Facebook, generated over $200 billion revenue in 2017, with an interanual growth over 15 percent. This online advertising explosion is raising serious data privacy concerns.

Piezomagnetic material changes magnetic properties when stretched Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(University of California - Davis) Piezoelectric materials, which generate an electric current when compressed or stretched, are familiar and widely used: lighters that spark when you press a switch, microphones, sensors, motors and all kinds of other devices. Now a group of physicists has found a material with a similar property, but for magnetism. This 'piezomagnetic' material changes its magnetic properties when put under mechanical strain.

Plasmons triggered in nanotube quantum wells Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(Rice University) A novel quantum effect observed in a carbon nanotube film could lead to the development of near-infrared lasers and other optoelectronic devices, according to scientists at Rice University and Tokyo Metropolitan University.

80 percent cut in liver metastasis by restricting the blood vessels supplying it Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(University of the Basque Country ) The International Journal of Cancer has just published the results of an experimental therapy tested on mice. The research, led by the Signaling Lab research group of the UPV/EHU's Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy and the Department of Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Technology of the University of Santiago de Compostela, achieved an 80 percent reduction in liver metastasis brought about by colon cancer.

Scientists mimic neural tissue in Army-funded research Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(U.S. Army Research Laboratory) US Army-funded researchers at Brandeis University have discovered a process for engineering next-generation soft materials with embedded chemical networks that mimic the behavior of neural tissue. The breakthrough material may lead to autonomous soft robotics, dual sensors and actuators for soft exoskeletons, or artificial skins.

New solution to harmful algal blooms raises hope of economic and environmental benefits Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(John Innes Centre) A cheap, safe and effective method of dealing with harmful algal blooms is on the verge of being introduced following successful field and lab tests.

Mobile application detecting atrial fibrillation reduces the risk of stroke Friday March 16th, 2018 04:00:00 AM
(University of Turku) A new application developed at the University of Turku, Finland, can detect atrial fibrillation that causes strokes. Atrial fibrillation can be detected with the mobile phone application without any extra equipment. The mobile application can save lives all over the world as timely diagnosis of atrial fibrillation is crucial for effective stroke prevention.
