A New Graphene Production Method for Smaller Semiconductors

Revealing a new production process, scientists at UCLA have used light and heat to synthesize graphene nanoribbons. Graphene, a two-dimensional material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms, has very promising properties for electronics....
Health Effects of Sucrose Withheld by Sugar Industry 50 Years Ago

Health Effects of Sucrose Withheld by Sugar Industry 50 Years Ago

The Sugar Industry is now being accused of withholding valuable information about the potential negative health effects of sucrose to humans. The sugar industry is now in hot waters after a new study exposed its...

How Non-invasive CancerLocator Finds Tumors

A breakthrough in the fight against cancer has just been made. Researchers developed a simple, computer-driven blood test that can detect and localize localization cancer much earlier, even before the onset of symptoms. The International...
Light Absorption

New, Flexible Light Absorption Material Improves Stealth and Energy Technologies

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have created a thin, flexible material which absorbs light perfectly from any angle. This new broadband absorber can also be customized to absorb light selectively according...

Time Crystals are the Newest Form of Matter

Scientists have created a non-equilibrium material that they call a 'Time Crystal.' The idea baffles the mind, but the science is solid. What does the introduction of this new form of matter mean for...

Researchers Find That Fat Aids in Scar-free Skin Regeneration

Whether due to falls, sports injuries, accidents or surgical procedures, few are those of us who don’t bear scars. Previously thought impossible, researchers now discovered a way to make wounds heal without scars. Scientists at...

What Heuristics Study in Adolescents Means for Machine Learning

For AI, the “training” technique, in part, seeks to expand the knowledge base artificial intelligence to produce more accurate results in machine learning decision making. A recent heuristics study in humans, however, showed that adolescents...

Challenging People’s Belief Systems Impacts Deep Learning

New research suggests that changing a particular belief can affect one's assurance in other firmly held beliefs. As we learn more about the human model for learning, how will that affect the way we...

How CRISPR Gene Editing may Cure Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a genetic blood disorder that afflicts millions of people worldwide. Although there is currently no cure, one gene-editing technique could soon change the way we treat SCD and other...

Giant Impact Phase More Violent for Moon Than we Thought

The Moon, Earth's closest neighboring cosmic mass, is a rather peculiar object in the Solar System. Recently, scientists have proposed a new theory that explains how the Moon was formed and helps take a...
