Multicolor super resolution imaging: A method to monitor dynamic protein binding at subsecond timescales
Researchers from the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at the National University of Singapore have developed a new method, using super-resolution microscopy, to determine the length of stretched protein...
A Stanford University research lab has developed new technologies to tackle two of the world's biggest energy challenges - clean fuel for transportation and grid-scale energy storage.
New imaging method reveals nanoscale details about DNA: Enhancement to super-resolution microscopy shows orientation of individual molecules, providing a new window into DNA's structure and dynamics
Researchers have developed a new enhanced DNA imaging technique that can probe the structure of individual DNA strands at the nanoscale. Since DNA is at the root of many disease processes, the techni...
RMIT quantum computing researchers have developed and demonstrated a method capable of efficiently detecting high-dimensional entanglement.
When the body is fighting an invading pathogen, white blood cells--including T cells--must respond. Now, Salk Institute researchers have imaged how vital receptors on the surface of T cells bundle tog...
Key compound for high-temperature superconductivity was found: Leading to the solution of environmental and energy problems with superconductivity
A research group in Japan found a new compound H5S2 that shows a new superconductivity phase on computer simulation. Further theoretical and experimental research based on H5S2 predicted by this group...
New approach to microlasers: Technique for 'phase locking' arrays of tiny lasers could lead to terahertz security scanners
Terahertz radiation -- the band of electromagnetic radiation between microwaves and visible light -- has promising applications in security and medical diagnostics, but such devices will require the d...
Yale scientists have found a way to greatly boost the intensity of light waves on a silicon microchip using the power of sound.
Study quantifies the effects of tethering on the dynamic mechanical properties of a DNA molecule, which affects the conformational changes involved in DNA replication.
