While pondering the challenges of distinguishing one nano-sized probe image from another in a mass of hundreds or thousands of nanoprobes, researchers at Georgia Tech and Emory University made an interesting observation. The tiny, clustered dots of light looked a lot like a starry sky on a clear night.
A super-sensitive mini-sensor developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can detect nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in tiny samples of fluids flowing through a novel microchip.
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have demonstrated that liquids embedded with nanoparticles show enhanced performance and stability when exposed to electric fields. The finding could lead to new types of miniature camera lenses, cell phone displays, and other microscale fluidic devices.
Exhale on a cold winter day and you will see the water vapor coming out of your mouth. Light up your breath with a Nobel-Prize-related tool, and you could potentially detect trace amounts of over 1,000 compounds, some of which provide early warning signs of disease.
The lenses come from a recently completed, large set of observations as part of a huge project to survey a single 1.6 square degree field of sky (nine times the area of the full Moon) with several space-based and Earth-based observatories.
Available from Resolve Optics Ltd the new Model 290 Motorised Non-Browning CCTV Zoom Lens incorporates a range of useful features to assist operation in environments subject to radiation such as nuclear power generation stations.
Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. today announced it has developed a 10Gbps differential outputs type driver IC (KGL4186KD) for Mach-Zehnder (MZ) modulator for optical communication. The KGL4186KD achieves a power consumption of 0.9W (at the output swing of 6.4Vpp), one of the lowest of its kind, and is assembled in a small ceramic package that is advantageous for high frequency characteristics. Samples are available starting today.

Research and Markets has announced the addition of "High-Brightness Light Emitting Diode (LED) Industry: A Panel Discussion among Seven Experts on LED Technology and Rubicon Technology Corporation’s Competitive Position" to their offering.
A Virginia Tech student has created a floor lamp powered by gravity.
For diabetics, the daily routine of pricking their finger to check blood-sugar levels can be an annoying and inconvenient task. But now, a Baylor University researcher has developed an electromagnetic sensor that could provide diabetics a noninvasive alternative to reading their blood glucose levels, and new research shows the sensor works and is effective.
As more and more Americans undergo CT scans and other medical imaging scans involving intense X-rays, a new study suggests that many of them should take a pre-scan drug that could protect their kidneys from damage.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have come up with a potentially perfect way to sort and distribute the massive amounts of data that travel daily over optical fibers to people throughout the world.
Scientists at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, UK have developed an effective laser based method for the characterisation of the bulk chemical content of pharmaceutical capsules - without opening the capsules!
LOT-Oriel Ltd has been appointed as agents for the exciting new imaging system from FEI Company. Named the Phenom, this is completely new imaging tool aimed at a broad range of markets and applications.
