Researchers redefine what it means for low-cost semiconductors, called quantum dots, to be near-perfect and find that quantum dots meet quality standards set by more expensive alternatives.


Seeing through a robot's eyes helps those with profound motor impairments

An interface system that uses augmented reality technology could help individuals with profound motor impairments operate a humanoid robot to feed themselves and perform routine personal care tasks such as scratching an itch and applying skin lotion. The web-based interface displays a 'robot's eye view' of surroundings to help users interact with the world through the machine.

In the Mesorhabditis belari roundworm, the sole purpose of males is to help females produce clones of themselves.


Exotic 'second sound' phenomenon observed in pencil 'lead'

At relatively balmy temperatures, heat behaves like sound when moving through graphite, study reports.


Using an anti-smoking drug to control neurons



Posted: 14 Mar 2019 12:16 PM PDT


A potent chemogenetic system pairs an anti-smoking drug with specially engineered proteins to change neuron activity. The research tool could one day be used to treat conditions like epilepsy or pain.
