Sometimes all an overworked molecule needs is a good night's rest.
According to a study by physicist Mark Kuzyk and colleagues at Washington State University, a molecule that loses its ability to fluoresce when st...
The internet could soon shift into overdrive thanks to a new generation of optical molecules developed and tested by a team of researchers from Washington State University, the University of Leuven in Belgium and the Chinese Academy of Science in China.
Undergraduate students from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Howard University will now have a chance to pursue research at the intersection of mathematics and computational science, thanks to a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
At the nanometer scale, composition and characterization of materials leads to new discoveries for researchers around the world.
The three-dimensional shells of tiny ocean creatures could provide the foundation for novel electronic devices, including gas sensors able to detect pollution faster and more efficiently than conventional devices.
On a college campus, it would be difficult to find two subjects more different from each other than art and engineering.
Terahertz (THz) radiation, or far-infrared light, is potentially very useful for security applications, as it can penetrate clothing and other materials to provide images of concealed weapons, drugs, or other objects.
Scientists have unveiled a new technology that could lead to video displays that faithfully reproduce a fuller range of colors than current models, giving such a life-like viewing experience that it could be hard to go back to your old TV.
Scientists aimed the South Pole Telescope at Jupiter on the evening of Feb. 16 and successfully collected the instrument's first test observations.
Scientists have discovered something new about exotic particles called solitons.
Since the 1980s, scientists have known that solitons can carry an electrical charge when traveling through certain organic polymers. A n...
A team of scientists and engineers at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) are conducting research that could one day save humanity from asteroids threatening Earth.
They said it couldn't be done.
And that's what really motivated UD polymer chemist Chris Snively and Jochen Lauterbach, professor of chemical engineering at UD.
For years, polymer chemistry textbooks have ...
Robin Santra has been selected as the winner of the first 2007 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Young Scientist Prize for Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics.
Southeastern Louisiana University science students will have the opportunity to learn important business and technology entrepreneurship skills through a new program that puts them in charge of their own non-profit business.
Using the same "multispectral analysis" concept that enables satellites to study Earth's surface, Purdue University researchers have developed a new system that quickly determines the composition of cells and tissue for medical diagnostics and scientific applications.
