Phagraphene, a 'relative' of graphene, discovered
(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) A group of scientists from Russia, the USA and China, led by Artyom Oganov from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, using computer generated simulation have predicted the existence of a new two-dimensional carbon material, a 'patchwork.'

IU researchers lead $1.2 million effort to unlock economic potential of maker movement
(Indiana University) Indiana University researchers have received $1.2 million from the National Science Foundation to study maker movements, repair collectives and 'hackerspaces' in the Midwest and Asia as a potential a driver of the US economy.

Reversible Writing with Light
(Weizmann Institute of Science) Self-assembling nanoparticles take their cues from their surroundings.

Queen's University developing new drug against leading causes of death -- sepsis and ARDS
(Queen's University Belfast) The novel anti-inflammatory drug, SAN101, is being developed by a team of scientists and clinicians at Queen's. Pre-clinical results are published today in Science Translational Medicine -- one of the world's leading journals on experimental medicine.

A marine creature's magic trick explained
(Weizmann Institute of Science) Crystal structures on the sea sapphire's back appear differently depending on the angle of reflection

Waste coffee used as fuel storage
(Institute of Physics) Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of recycling a waste product.The results are published today, Sept. 3, 2015, in the journal Nanotechnology.

ASU team develops quick way to determine bacteria's antibiotic resistance
(Arizona State University) Bacteria's ability to become resistant to antibiotics is a growing issue in health care: Resistant strains result in prolonged illnesses and higher mortality rates.One way to combat this is to determine bacteria's antibiotic resistance in a given patient, but that often takes days -- and time is crucial in treatment. ASU scientists have developed a technique that can sort antibiotic-resistant from 'susceptible' bacteria, and it happens in a matter of minutes.

Made from solar concentrate
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A team of scientists with Berkeley Lab and the University of Illinois created solar cells that collect higher energy photons at 30 times the concentration of conventional solar cells, the highest luminescent concentration factor ever recorded.

UT Arlington patent allows real-time learning based on previous decisions
(University of Texas at Arlington) UT Arlington electrical engineers have patented an innovative method that improves a controller's ability to make real-time decisions.

Hot electrons point the way to perfect light absorption
(Bielefeld University) Light-absorbing films can be found in many everyday applications such as solar cells or sensors. Although such 'absorber' films are applied widely, scientists still do not know which mechanism permits the most efficient absorption of light. A team of physicists at Bielefeld University, the University of Kaiserslautern, and the University of Wrzburg have now proved that the very efficient scattering of light in ultra-thin rough films traps light until it is absorbed completely.
