- Dec 01, 2016 'Ghost imaging' with atoms demonstrated A team of physicists in Australia has used a technique known as 'ghost imaging' to create an image of an object from atoms that never interact with it. This is the first time that ghost imaging has been achieved using atoms, although it has previously been demonstrated with light, leading to applications being developed for imaging and remote sensing through turbulent environments.
- Dec 01, 2016 Astronomers watch star clusters spewing out dust Galaxies are often thought of as sparkling with stars, but they also contain gas and dust. Now, a team of astronomers has used new data to show that stars are responsible for producing dust on galactic scales, a finding consistent with long-standing theory. Dust is important because it is a key component of rocky planets such as Earth.
- Dec 01, 2016 Sniffing like a dog can improve trace detection of explosives Scientists have developed an artificial dog nose that mimics the 'active sniffing' of dogs and can increase vapor detection up to 16-fold.
- Dec 01, 2016 New process produces hydrogen at much lower temperature Researchers have developed a new method for producing hydrogen, which is fast, irreversible, and takes place at much lower temperature using less energy. This innovation is expected to contribute to the spread of fuel cell systems for automobiles and homes.
- Dec 01, 2016 Black phosphorus doesn't mind water (if it is de-aerated) Researchers have disproved the idea that water degrades black phosphorus and find the material is actually hydrophobic, outlines a new report.
- Dec 01, 2016 World first MRI study sheds light on heart damage during kidney dialysis Experts in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and kidney disease have carried out the first ever scans to study the heart function of kidney patients while they are having dialysis treatment.
