This FIB doesn't lie: New NIST microscope sees what others can't
Microscopes don't exactly lie, but their limitations affect the truths they can tell. For example, scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) simply can't see materials that don't conduct electricity very well, and their high energies can actually damage some types of samples. View News Article (2014-05-09)

UT Arlington physicist creates new nanoparticle for cancer therapy
A University of Texas at Arlington physicist working to create a luminescent nanoparticle to use in security-related radiation detection may have instead happened upon an advance in photodynamic cancer therapy.  View News Article (2014-04-16)

First thin films of spin ice reveal cold secrets
Thin films of spin ice have been shown to demonstrate surprising properties which could help in the development of applications of magnetricity, the magnetic equivalent of electricity. View News Article (2014-03-12)

Relativity shakes a magnet
The research group of Professor Jairo Sinova at the Institute of Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), in collaboration with researchers from Prague, Cambridge, and Nottingham, have predicted and discovered a new physical phenomenon that allows to manipulate the state of a magnet by electric signals. View News Article (2014-03-04)

Waterloo physicists solve 20-year-old debate surrounding glassy surfaces
University of Waterloo physicists have succeeded in measuring how the surfaces of glassy materials flow like a liquid, even when they should be solid. View News Article (2014-03-03)

Detecting levels of antibiotics in blood paves the way to individualized treatment
A new methodology for rapidly measuring the level of antibiotic drug molecules in human blood serum has been developed, paving the way to applications within drug development and personalised medicine.  View News Article (2014-03-03)

Nanoscale pillars could radically improve conversion of heat to electricity
University of Colorado Boulder scientists have found a creative way to radically improve thermoelectric materials, a finding that could one day lead to the development of improved solar panels, more energy-efficient cooling equipment, and even the creation of new devices that could turn the vast amounts of heat wasted at power plants into more electricity.  View News Article (2014-02-21)

New 'pomegranate-inspired' design solves problems for lithium-ion batteries
An electrode designed like a pomegranate - with silicon nanoparticles clustered like seeds in a tough carbon rind - overcomes several remaining obstacles to using silicon for a new generation of lithium-ion batteries, say its inventors at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. View News Article (2014-02-18)

DNA-built nanostructures safely target, image cancer tumors
A team of researchers at the University of Toronto has discovered a method of assembling "building blocks" of gold nanoparticles as the vehicle to deliver cancer medications or cancer-identifying markers directly into cancerous tumors.  View News Article (2014-01-28)

Material Developed by UC San Diego Engineers Could Speed Up Underwater Communications by Orders of Magnitude
University of California, San Diego electrical engineering professor Zhaowei Liu and colleagues have taken the first steps in a project to develop fast-blinking LED systems for underwater optical communications. View News Article (2014-01-27)
