Introducing the latest in textiles: Soft hardware

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 10:43 AM PDT

Researchers have incorporated electronic devices into soft fabrics, potentially making it possible to produce clothing that communicates optically with other devices.


Novel approach to coherent control of a three-level quantum system

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 10:42 AM PDT

For the first time, researchers were able to study quantum interference in a three-level quantum system and thereby control the behavior of individual electron spins. To this end, they used a novel nanostructure, in which a quantum system is integrated into a nanoscale mechanical oscillator in form of a diamond cantilever.


World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 10:42 AM PDT

A team has developed an ingenious precision rotary table at the EDDI beamline at BESSY II and combined it with particularly fast optics. This enabled them to document the formation of pores in grains of metal during foaming processes at 25 tomographic images per second — a world record.




Harmful bacteria thrived in post-Hurricane Harvey floodwaters

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 10:42 AM PDT

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25, 2017, bringing more than 50 inches of rain and extreme flooding to the city of Houston. In addition to wreaking havoc on buildings and infrastructure, urban floodwaters harbor hidden menaces in the form of bacteria that can cause disease. Now, researchers have surveyed the microbes that lurked in Houston floodwaters, both inside and outside of homes.

Blue light from digital devices and the sun transforms vital molecules in the eye’s retina


Seed coats could lead to strong, tough, yet flexible materials

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 06:39 AM PDT

Inspired by elements found in nature, researchers say the puzzle-like wavy structure of the delicate seed coat, found in plants like succulents and some grasses, could hold the secret to creating new smart materials strong enough to be used in items like body armor, screens, and airplane panels.


Elliptical elegance in glittering host of galaxies

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 04:54 AM PDT

A glittering host of galaxies populate this rich image taken with ESO’s VLT Survey Telescope, a state-of-the-art 2.6-m telescope designed for surveying the sky in visible light. The features of the multitude of galaxies strewn across the image allow astronomers to uncover the most delicate details of galactic structure.
