Spotlight Stories Headlines
🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
*SO MUCH TECH D.I.Y VIDEOS NOW AVAILABLE*
The SHAB TECHNOLOGY PLANET youtube channel is now fully loaded with so much tech do it yourself (D.I.Y) videos that will technically and technologically help.
*A molecular shift register that can be controlled by external charges*
In recent years, electronics engineers have been trying to create molecular-scale electronics, new types of devices that use single molecules. In order for these devices to work, however, scientists first need to identify effective methods to tune the electronic properties of molecular arrays, which has so far proved to be fairly challenging.
*Large-area flexible organic photodiodes can compete with silicon devices*
The performance of flexible large-area organic photodiodes has advanced to the point that they can now offer advantages over conventional silicon photodiode technology, particularly for applications such as biomedical imaging and biometric monitoring that require detecting low levels of light across large areas.
*’Electronic skin’ promises cheap and recyclable alternative to wearable devices*
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are developing a wearable electronic device that’s “really wearable”—a stretchy and fully-recyclable circuit board that’s inspired by, and sticks onto, human skin.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
*Applying particle physics methods to quantum computing*
Borrowing a page from high-energy physics and astronomy textbooks, a team of physicists and computer scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has successfully adapted and applied a common error-reduction technique to the field of quantum computing.
*Scientists work to shed light on Standard Model of particle physics*
As scientists await the highly anticipated initial results of the Muon g-2 experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, collaborating scientists from DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory continue to employ and maintain the unique system that maps the magnetic field in the experiment with unprecedented precision.
*Scientists and students publish blueprints for a cheaper single-molecule microscope*
A team of scientists and students from the University of Sheffield has designed and built a specialist microscope, and shared the build instructions to help make this equipment available to many labs across the world.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
*Past is key to predicting future climate, scientists say*
In a review paper published in the journal Science, a group of climate experts make the case for including paleoclimate data in the development of climate models. Such models are used globally to assess the impacts of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, predict scenarios for future climate and propose strategies for mitigation.
*Reducing global food system emissions key to meeting climate goals*
Reducing fossil fuel use is essential to stopping climate change, but that goal will remain out of reach unless global agriculture and eating habits are also transformed, according to new research from the University of Minnesota and University of Oxford.
*Dust travelled thousands of miles to enrich Hawaiian soils*
With its warm weather and sandy beaches, Hawaii is a magnet for tourists every year. This unique ecosystem also attracts soil scientists interested in what surprises may lie beneath their feet.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
*Seeing dark matter in a new light*
A small team of astronomers have found a new way to ‘see’ the elusive dark matter haloes that surround galaxies, with a new technique 10 times more precise than the previous-best method. The work is published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
*Clay subsoil at Earth’s driest place may signal life on Mars*
Earth’s most arid desert may hold a key to finding life on Mars.
*New research on imposter stars may improve astronomical data*
Quick flashes of light in the night sky have been linked to the growing mass of satellites and debris zipping around Earth’s orbit.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
*Gold-catalyzed reaction releases an active drug to kill cancer cells*
Drugs that are activated inside the body with catalytic quantities of gold could offer a new option for treating cancer and other diseases, four RIKEN researchers have shown.
*Higher-resolution imaging of living, moving cells using plasmonic metasurfaces*
In the quest to image exceedingly small structures and phenomena with higher precision, scientists have been pushing the limits of optical microscope resolution, but these advances often come with increased complication and cost.
*Germanium telluride’s hidden properties at the nanoscale revealed*
Germanium telluride (GeTe) is known as a ferrolectric Rashba semiconductor with a number of interesting properties. The crystals consist of nanodomains, whose ferrolectric polarization can be switched by external electric fields. Because of the so-called Rashba effect, this ferroelectricity can also be used to switch electron spins within each domain. Germanium telluride is therefore an interesting material for spintronic devices, which allow data processing with significantly less energy input.
