New scanning transmission electron microscopes for medical and materials research

Researchers in Ben McMorran's University of Oregon physics lab had a great 2018, publishing four papers about their efforts to bring new life to scanning transmission electron microscopes for medical and materials research.

Study of the universe could help improve global security

A major research project between the UK and US to harness existing particle physics research techniques in order to remotely monitor nuclear reactors has been launched with the help of scientists at the University of Sheffield.

Making the simple complex: Synchronization researchers dive into the 'messy'

Most people see the ocean waves and vaguely wonder why some are big and some are small —or look into a roaring fire and are curious as to what makes the flames move as they do—with seemingly no rhyme or reason.

International team of physicists continues search for new physics

Researchers thought they might have finally uncovered evidence of new physics, which could be a sign of dark matter particles, but a recent improvement of the measurement by the CMS collaboration produced results that are nearly consistent with the expectations of the standard model.

International team of physicists continues search for new physics

Dark matter, which is thought to account for nearly a quarter of matter in the universe (but has yet to be observed), has perplexed physicists for decades. They're constantly looking for something surprising to show up in experiments—results that deviate from the standard model that defines elementary physics.

Researchers wing it in mimicking evolution to discover best shape for flight

A team of mathematicians has determined the ideal wing shape for fast flapping flight—a discovery that offers promise for better methods for harvesting energy from water as well as for enhancing air speed.

Movable microstructures from the printer

Laser-based 3D printing can already be used today to produce any structure on a micrometer scale. However, for many applications, especially in biomedicine, it would be advantageous if the printed objects were not rigid but switchable. Researchers have now been able to print microstructures that change shape under the influence of temperature or light.

Laser-fabricated crystals in glass are ferroelectric

For the first time, a team of researchers has demonstrated that laser-generated crystals confined in glass retain controllable ferroelectric properties, key to creating faster, more efficient optical communication systems.

Fluid dynamics simulation reveals the underlying physics of liquid jet cleaning

In a significant advance for semiconductor manufacturing, mechanical engineers created a simulation that makes it easier to choose environmentally friendly water jet and underwater ultrasound techniques for cleaning processes.

Electrical conductivity in doped organic semiconductors

Researchers have identified the key parameters that influence electrical conductivity in doped organic conductors.
