Physicists uncover new competing state of matter in superconducting material

Ames Laboratory researchers used laser pulses of less than a trillionth of a second in much the same way as flash photography, in order to...

DNA design that anyone can do: Computer program can translate a free-form 2-D drawing into a DNA structure

MIT researchers have devised a technique that “reverse engineers” complex 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models — breaking them down into...

Scientists program proteins to pair exactly: Technique paves the way for the creation of protein nanomachines and for the engineering of new cell functions

Proteins designed in the lab can now zip together in much the same way that DNA molecules zip up to form a double helix. The technique...

Lucy Finds Its Place in the Solar System: Navigating NASA’s First Mission to the Trojan Asteroids

This diagram illustrates Lucy's orbital path. The spacecraft’s path (green) is shown in...

Scientists use magnetic defects to achieve electromagnetic wave breakthrough

This shows how a plane electron wave and a magnetic charge interact, forming an electron vortex state that carries orbital angular momentum...
