Detecting caesium with naked eyes5-March-2013
(Tsukuba, 5 March 2013) 'Micrometre-level naked-eye detection' of caesium ions, a major source of contamination in the vicinity of radioactive leaks, is demonstrated in a material developed by researchers in Japan.Contact: Adarsh Sandhu Institution: International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) Category: Technology
Optical materials: Light’s magnetism shows its true colors27-February-2013
Researchers at the A*STAR Data Storage Institute, Singapore have created tiny spheres of silicon that can strongly interact with the magnetic field of visible-wavelength light. These engineered ‘magnetic materials’ enable new ways of controlling light at the nanoscale.Contact: A*STAR Research Institution: The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Category: Science
Microelectronics: A tougher seal for rugged environments27-February-2013
Sensors used in harsh conditions, such as deep-sea oil wells, must withstand extreme temperatures and pressures for hundreds of hours without failing. Researchers in Singapore have investigated two metal alloys that could give micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) sensors better protection in the toughest environmentsContact: A*STAR Research Institution: The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Category: Science
Fluid mechanics: Bubble impacts caught on film27-February-2013
When a bubble of air rising through water hits a sheet of glass, it doesn’t simply stop — it squishes, rebounds, and rises again, before slowly moving to the barrier. An international research team with high-speed cameras reveal the complex physics at work as air meets water and glass.Contact: A*STAR Research Institution: The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Category: Science
Uncovering maternal to paternal communications in mice25-February-2013
Kanazawa, Japan, 25 Feb - Researchers at Japan’s Kanazawa University have proven the existence of communicative signalling from female mice that induces male parental behaviour. The research was published in Nature and is described in the Feb issue of the Kanazawa University Research BulletinContact: Adarsh Sandhu Institution: Organization of Frontier Science and Innovation, Kanazawa University Category: Medicine
