EVOLVABLE NEURAL UNITS THAT CAN MIMIC THE BRAIN’S SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY
Machine learning techniques are designed to mathematically emulate the functions and structure of neurons and neural networks in the brain. However, biological neurons are very complex, which makes artificially replicating them particularly challenging.
CONCEPT FOR A HYBRID-ELECTRIC PLANE MAY REDUCE AVIATION’S AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM
At cruising altitude, airplanes emit a steady stream of nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere, where the chemicals can linger to produce ozone and fine particulates. Nitrogen oxides, or NOx, are a major source of air pollution and have been associated with asthma, respiratory disease, and cardiovascular disorders. Previous research has shown that the generation of these chemicals due to global aviation results in 16,000 premature deaths each year.
NEW METHOD MAKES BETTER PREDICTIONS OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES USING LOW QUALITY DATA
Advancements in energy technologies, healthcare, semiconductors and food production all have one thing in common: they rely on developing new materials—new combinations of atoms—that have specific properties enabling them to perform a needed function. In the not-too-distant past, the only way to know what properties a material had was by performing experimental measurements or using very expensive computations.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NEW STATE OF MATTER IN ONE-DIMENSIONAL QUANTUM GAS
As the story goes, the Greek mathematician and tinkerer Archimedes came across an invention while traveling through ancient Egypt that would later bear his name. It was a machine consisting of a screw housed inside a hollow tube that trapped and drew water upon rotation. Now, researchers led by Stanford University physicist Benjamin Lev have developed a quantum version of Archimedes’ screw that, instead of water, hauls fragile collections of gas atoms to higher and higher energy states without collapsing. Their discovery is detailed in a paper published Jan. 14 in Science.
HOW AEROSOLS ARE FORMED
ETH Zurich researchers conducted an experiment to investigate the initial steps in the formation of aerosols. Their findings are now aiding efforts to better understand and model that process—for example, the formation of clouds in the atmosphere.
PHYSICAL VIROLOGY SHOWS THE DYNAMICS OF VIRUS REPRODUCTION
The reproductive cycle of viruses requires self-assembly, maturation of virus particles and, after infection, the release of genetic material into a host cell. New physics-based technologies allow scientists to study the dynamics of this cycle and may eventually lead to new treatments. In his role as physical virologist, Wouter Roos, a physicist at the University of Groningen, together with two longtime colleagues, has written a review article on these new technologies, which was published in Nature Reviews Physics on 12 January.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
LOW COST CHLORINE DISPENSING DEVICE IMPROVES TAP WATER SAFETY IN LOW-RESOURCE REGIONS
A team of researchers led by engineers at Tufts University’s School of Engineering and Stanford University’s Program on Water, Health and Development have developed a novel and inexpensive chlorine dispensing device that can improve the safety of drinking water in regions of the world that lack financial resources and adequate infrastructure. With no moving parts, no need for electricity, and little need for maintenance, the device releases measured quantities of chlorine into the water just before it exits the tap. It provides a quick and easy way to eliminate water-borne pathogens and reduce the spread of high mortality diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever and diarrhea.
A CLIMATE IN CRISIS CALLS FOR INVESTMENT IN DIRECT AIR CAPTURE, NEWS RESEARCH FINDS
There is a growing consensus among scientists as well as national and local governments representing hundreds of millions of people, that humanity faces a climate crisis that demands a crisis response. New research from the University of California San Diego explores one possible mode of response: a massively funded program to deploy direct air capture (DAC) systems that remove CO2 directly from the ambient air and sequester it safely underground.
CLIMATE CHANGE IS HURTING CHILDREN’S DIETS, GLOBAL STUDY FINDS
A first-of-its-kind, international study of 107,000 children finds that higher temperatures are an equal or even greater contributor to child malnutrition and low quality diets than the traditional culprits of poverty, inadequate sanitation, and poor education.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
STUDENTS DISCOVER BRIGHT LENSED GALAXY IN THE EARLY UNIVERSE
The night sky is a natural time machine, used by cosmologists to explore the origins and evolution of the universe. Reaching into the depths of the past, a class of undergraduate students at the University of Chicago sought to do the same—and uncovered an extraordinarily distant galaxy in the early cosmos.
SHINING A NEW LIGHT ON DARK ENERGY
The Dark Energy Survey has released a massive, public collection of astronomical data and calibrated images from six years of work. Containing data on nearly 700 million astronomical objects, this second data release in the Survey’s seven-year history is the topic of sessions today and tomorrow at the 237th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
CITIZEN SCIENTISTS CONTRIBUTE TO 3-D MAP OF COSMIC NEIGHBORHOOD
Scientists tapped into the worldwide network of volunteers using Backyard Worlds: Planet 9 to map dozens of new brown dwarfs, or balls gas not heavy enough to be stars.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
ACOUSTOFLUIDIC CENTRIFUGE FOR NANOPARTICLE ENRICHMENT AND ASSORTMENT
Liquid droplets have recently gained renewed attention as a simplified model for a variety of fascinating physical phenomena at the scale of the cell nucleus to stellar black holes. In a new report now published in Science Advances, Yuyang Gu and a team of scientists in the U.S. presented an acoustofluidic centrifugation technique that used the entanglement of acoustic wave actuation and the spin of a fluidic droplet to accomplish nanoparticle enrichment and separation. They combined acoustic scanning and droplet spinning methods to achieve rapid nanoparticle concentrations and size-based separation with a resolution sufficient to identify and isolate exosome sub-populations.
BIODEGRADABLE INORGANIC UPCONVERSION NANOCRYSTALS DEVELOPED FOR IN VIVO APPLICATIONS
Lanthanide-doped inorganic upconversion nanocrystals (UCNCs) are attracting more attention, as they are potential fluorescent diagnostic and therapeutic agents for in vivo applications including biological imaging and disease theragnostics.
