Northwestern scientists develop first liquid nanolaser
(Northwestern University) Northwestern University scientists have developed the first liquid nanoscale laser. And it's tunable in real time, meaning you can quickly and simply produce different colors, a unique and useful feature. The laser technology could lead to practical applications, such as a new form of a 'lab on a chip' for medical diagnostics. In addition to changing color in real time, the liquid nanolaser has additional advantages: it is simple to make, inexpensive to produce and operates at room temperature.

Picture this: Graphene brings 3-D holograms clearer and closer
(Griffith University) From mobile phones and computers to television, cinema and wearable devices, the display of full-color, wide-angle, 3-D holographic images is moving ever closer to fruition, thanks to international research featuring Griffith University.

A silver lining
(University of California - Santa Barbara) Scientists use a novel form of nanotechnology to create a positionable silver cluster with DNA-programmed tunable fluorescent color.

ORNL reports method that takes quantum sensing to new level
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Thermal imaging, microscopy and ultra-trace sensing could take a quantum leap with a technique being developed at ORNL.

Researchers add a new wrinkle to cell culture
(Brown University) Using a technique that introduces tiny wrinkles into sheets of graphene, researchers from Brown University have developed new textured surfaces for culturing cells in the lab that better mimic the complex surroundings in which cells grow in the body.

Ultra-sensitive sensor detects individual electrons
(FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology) A Spanish-led team of European researchers at the University of Cambridge has created an electronic device so accurate that it can detect the charge of a single electron in less than one microsecond. It has been dubbed the 'gate sensor' and could be applied in quantum computers of the future to read information stored in the charge or spin of a single electron.

Mechanical cloaks of invisibility -- without complicated mathematics
(Karlsruher Institut fr Technologie (KIT) ) A honeycomb is a very stable structure. A larger hole, however, jeopardizes stability. What might a honeycomb look like, which survives external forces in spite of a hole? Such stable types of constructions might be useful in architecture or construction. So far, the mathematical expenditure required has been high and did not lead to success. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have found a principle that facilitates the mathematical approach and produces promising results.

Pseudoparticles travel through photoactive material
(Karlsruher Institut fr Technologie (KIT) ) Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have unveiled an important step in the conversion of light into storable energy: together with scientists of the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin and the Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland, they studied the formation of so-called polarons in zinc oxide. The pseudoparticles travel through the photoactive material until they are converted into electrical or chemical energy at an interface.

POSTECH signs MoU with Seoul National University Hospital, Korea's leading medical center
(Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH)) A memorandum of understanding was signed on April 20 between Pohang University of Science and Technology and Seoul National University Hospital as an open innovation initiative to create synergy by combining their respective strengths -- POSTECH's research capacity in life sciences and engineering related fields with SNUH's competence in biomedical science.

Scientists use nanoscale building blocks and DNA 'glue' to shape 3-D superlattices
(DOE/Brookhaven National Laboratory) Taking child's play with building blocks to a whole new level-the nanometer scale-scientists at the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have constructed 3-D 'superlattice' multicomponent nanoparticle arrays where the arrangement of particles is driven by the shape of the tiny building blocks. The method uses linker molecules made of complementary strands of DNA to overcome the blocks' tendency to pack together in a way that would separate differently shaped components.
