Getting closer to porous, light-responsive materials

( Kyoto University) Researchers at Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) and the University of Tokyo have developed a light-responsive crystalline material that overcomes challenges faced in previous studies.

Researchers develop DNA sunscreen that gets better the longer you wear it

( Binghamton University) Why use regular sunscreen when you can apply a DNA film to your skin? Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York have developed a coating made out of DNA that gets better at protecting skin from ultraviolet light the more you expose it to the sun, and it also keeps your skin hydrated.

Could spraying particles into marine clouds help cool the planet?

( University of Washington) A first test of humans' ability to modify clouds would help explain the behavior of clouds and aerosols, while also testing a possible future climate emergency measure.

CCNY physicists master unexplored electron property

( City College of New York) While the charge and spin properties of electrons are widely utilized in modern day technologies such as transistors and memories, another aspect of the subatomic particle has long remained uncharted. This is the 'valley' property which has potential for realizing a new class of technology termed 'valleytronics' -- similar to electronics (charge) and spintronics (spin). This property arises from the fact that the electrons in the crystal occupy different positions that are quantum mechanically distinct.

Molecular microscopy illuminates molecular motor motion

( Penn State) A toddler running sometimes loses footing because both feet come off the ground at the same time. Kinesin motors that move materials around in cells have the same problem, which limits how fast they can traverse a microtubule in the cell and carry cargo, according to Penn State researchers who have now seen these kinesin motors move using an unusual microscope and tagging method.

NASA spots a waning Tropical Depression Kulap

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Kulap is now a tropical depression moving through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, and NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible light image of the diminishing storm.

Smart surface enables advanced manipulation of droplets

( University of British Columbia) Researchers at the University of British Columbia have developed an inexpensive, scalable smart surface that is powered by just a conventional electric battery. The copper-based surface changes from being highly water-repellent (superhydrophobic) to highly water-absorbent (superhydrophilic) as electric potential is applied.

NASA's infrared view ofpPowerful storms surrounding Typhoon Noru's eye

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Noru and gathered infrared data on the cloud top temperatures which gave forecasters an idea of the powerful thunderstorms circling the eye.

Qubitekk licenses ORNL single-photon source approach for quantum encryption

( DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Qubitekk has non-exclusively licensed an Oak Ridge National Laboratory-developed method to produce quantum light particles, known as photons, in a controlled, deterministic manner that promises improved speed and security when sharing encrypted data.

Kansas State University contributes to DUNE, the world's biggest neutrino experiment

( Kansas State University) Several Kansas State University scientists are involved in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, or DUNE, a large international collaboration that is detecting and studying neutrinos to understand dark matter, black holes and the origins of the universe.
