Your cells are social butterflies. They constantly interact with their surroundings, taking in cues on when to divide and where to anchor themselves, among other critical tasks.

Surprising Control Over Photoelectrons From A Topological Insulator
2013-03-13 15:22:44

Berkeley Lab scientists discover how a photon beam can flip the spin polarization of electrons emitted from an exciting new material

Far-reaching Problem In Computer Simulations Deciphered By Scientists
2013-01-03 12:19:27

Because modern computers have to depict the real world with digital representations of numbers instead of physical analogues, to simulate the continuous passage of time they have to digitize time into small slices.

Boosting Biofuel Production By Boosting Galactan Sugars

In 1998 scientists measuring the expansion of the Universe made a startling discovery: the Universe is accelerating. Previously, researchers believed that the expansion of the Universe would eventually slow under the influence of gravity.

Real-Time CT-Scan Test Rig For Ceramic Composites At Ultrahigh Temperatures Developed
2012-12-10 16:41:08

Advanced ceramic composites can withstand the ultrahigh operational temperatures projected for hypersonic jet and next generation gas turbine engines, but real-time analysis of the mechanical properties of these space-age materials at ultrahigh temperatures has been a challenge – until now.
