Researchers Unveil Carbon Nanotube Jungles To Better Detect Molecules
2013-11-06 13:12:01

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich have developed a new method of using nanotubes to detect molecules at extremely low concentrations enabling trace detection of biological threats, explosives and drugs. The joint research team, led by LLNL Engineer Tiziana Bond and ETH Scientist Hyung Gyu Park, are using spaghetti-like, gold-hafnium-coated carbon nanotubes...

ExoMars Rover To Look For Microbial Life
2013-09-10 14:49:55

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2018, the European Space Agency (ESA) will launch a new mission to Mars called ExoMars. Armed with new instruments, this explorer will beam back information about various conditions and properties on the Red Planet’s surface. One such instrument will be the Raman spectrometer – a device similar to a bomb detector that will search for evidence for life. The Raman spectrometer has the ability to detect life that has been...

CSI Technique Avoids Forensic Evidence Contamination
2013-08-09 05:02:59

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the chief concerns at any crime scene investigation is avoiding contamination of forensic evidence. A new study by forensic scientists at the University of Kent, UK, has established a new method of identifying the brand of lipstick someone was wearing at a crime scene without removing the evidence from its bag. The researchers used a technique called Raman spectroscopy that detects laser light. This technique will allow...

Testing Mars Lasers In Desert
2013-06-25 10:18:28

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Looking for the closest representation of otherworldly environments on Earth? Look no further than the Atacama desert. It covers a large strip of the Pacific coast west of the Andes, spanning four South American countries. One swath of this desert found in Chile is commonly compared to the Martian surface and has been used by NASA to test tools designed to search for life in a harsh environment. Now, scientists from Washington...

Scientists Image The Molecular Structure Of Polymer Blends
2012-11-28 15:30:26

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Using an enhanced form of "chemical microscopy" developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), researchers there have shown that they can peer into the structure of blended polymers, resolving details of the molecular arrangement at sub-micrometer levels. The capability has important implications for the design of industrially important polymers like the polyethylene blends used to repair aging waterlines....

'BRIGHTS' Reveal Location Of Targeted Tissues
2012-11-21 10:41:38

Washington University in St. Louis Called BRIGHTs, the tiny probes described in the online issue of Advanced Materials on Nov. 15, bind to biomarkers of disease and, when swept by an infrared laser, light up to reveal their location. Tiny as they are, the probes are exquisitely engineered objects: gold nanoparticles covered with molecules called Raman reporters, in turn covered by a thin shell of gold that spontaneously forms a dodecahedron. The Raman reporters are molecules whose...


Word of the Day
baudekin
  • A rich embroidered or brocaded silk fabric woven originally with a warp of gold thread.
'Baudekin' seems to be an alternative form of 'baldachin,' from the Italian 'Baldacco,' Baghdad, the city where the material was made.
