MIT researchers explain mystery of gravity fingers
Researchers at MIT recently found an elegant solution to a sticky scientific problem in basic fluid mechanics: why water doesn't soak into soil at an even rate, but instead forms what look like fingers of fluid flowing downward. View News Article (2008-12-12)

Tapping into plants is the key to combat climate change, says scientist
Understanding the way plants use and store light to produce energy could be the key ingredient in the fight against climate change, a scientist at Queen Mary, University of London says. View News Article (2011-06-02)

Researchers build an ultrasound version of the laser
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at the University of Missouri at Rolla have built an ultrasound analogue of the laser. View News Article (2006-06-09)

New microscopy technique reveals mechanics of blood cell membranes
Thanks to an interdisciplinary team of researchers, scientists now have a more complete understanding of one of the human body's most vital structures: the red blood cell. View News Article (2010-04-29)

Novel computer model for blood flow could help doctors predict arterial disease
A unique computer model of how blood flows in human arteries has been developed by researchers in the UK. The model could help doctors understand the stresses that blood places on the walls of vessels and provide new insights into vascular disease. The work has been carried out by Dr Yun Xu together with Dr Simon Thom and Professor Alun Hughes at Imperial College London, with funding from the... View News Article (2000-10-19)

When fluid dynamics mimic quantum mechanics
In the early days of quantum physics, in an attempt to explain the wavelike behavior of quantum particles, the French physicist Louis de Broglie proposed what he called a "pilot wave" theory. View News Article (2013-07-30)

Carbon nanotubes outperform copper nanowires as interconnects
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a road map that brings academia and the semiconductor industry one step closer to realizing carbon nanotube interconnects, and alleviating the current bottleneck of information flow that is limiting the potential of computer chips in everything from personal computers to portable music players. View News Article (2008-03-14)

MIT physicists use offshoot of string theory to describe puzzling behavior of superconductors
Physicists are divided on whether string theory is a viable theory of everything, but many agree that it offers a new way to look at physical phenomena that have otherwise proven difficult to describe. View News Article (2010-08-06)

Time Warp: LSU Researcher Shows Possibility of Cloning Quantum Information from the Past
Popular television shows such as "Doctor Who" have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU's Mark Wilde has shown that it would theoretically be possible for time travelers to copy quantum data from the past. View News Article (2013-12-09)

Loopy photons clarify 'spookiness' of quantum physics
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST/University of Maryland) have developed a new method for creating pairs of entangled photons, particles of light whose properties are interlinked in a very unusual way dictated by the rules of quantum physics. View News Article (2008-03-19)
