A New Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics Suggests Reality Does Not Depend on the Measurer

For 100 years scientists have disagreed on how to interpret quantum mechanics. A recent study supports an interpretation that is close to classical scientific ...

Silk Fibers Improve Bioink for 3D-Printed Artificial Tissues and Organs

Researchers processed silk fibers into a versatile component of bioink for 3D cell printing technology. Printed objects retain their shape better than those produced without the silk additive, and ...

Diamonds Are a Quantum Scientist's Best Friend

New research details the phenomenon of what is called 'triplet superconductivity' in diamond. Triplet superconductivity occurs when electrons move in a composite spin state rather than as a ...

This 'Squidbot' Jets Around and Takes Pics of Coral and Fish

Engineers have built a squid-like robot that can swim untethered, propelling itself by generating jets of water. The robot carries its own power source inside its body. It can also carry a sensor, ...

Turning Diamond Into Metal

Researchers have discovered a way to tweak tiny needles of diamond in a controlled way to transform their electronic properties, dialing them from insulating, through semiconducting, all the way to ...

Wearable Exosuit That Lessens Muscle Fatigue Could Redesign the Future of Work

A new clothing-like exoskeleton can reduce back muscle fatigue and providing needed physical relief to material handlers, medical professionals and frontline ...

A Question of Reality

Physicists have published a review that explores Bell's inequalities and his concepts of reality and explains their relevance to quantum information and its ...

5G Wireless May Lead to Inaccurate Weather Forecasts

Upcoming 5G wireless networks that will provide faster cell phone service may lead to inaccurate weather forecasts, according to a new study on a controversial issue that has created anxiety among ...

New Brain Cell-Like Nanodevices Work Together to Identify Mutations in Viruses

Scientists have described a new nanodevice that acts almost identically to a brain cell. Furthermore, they have shown that these synthetic brain cells can be joined together to form intricate ...

Magnetic 'T-Budbots' Made from Tea Plants Kill and Clean Biofilm

Biofilms -- microbial communities that form slimy layers on surfaces -- are difficult to treat and remove, often because the microbes release molecules that block the entry of antibiotics and other ...

Scientists Get Soft on 3D Printing

Researchers have developed a new method of 3D-printing gels and other soft materials. It has the potential to create complex structures with nanometer-scale ...

Marine Sponges Inspire the Next Generation of Skyscrapers and Bridges

Researchers are using the glassy skeletons of marine sponges as inspiration for the next generation of stronger and taller buildings, longer bridges, and lighter spacecraft. The researchers showed ...

Engineers Imitate Human Hands to Make Better Sensors
