Looking to un-loch solar energy potential

Scotland's vast lochs may hold the key to future solar energy production, according to researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University. A team from the University's School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment has secured funding to…

New light-sheet microscopy unit reduced photodamage

A research group led by Takashi Saito, of the Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine, developed a 2-photon excitation light-sheet fluorescence microscope which lowers phototoxicity, extends the field of view, and heightens spatial resolution. This…

Researchers’ algorithm designs soft robots that sense

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (MIT News Office)-- There are some tasks that traditional robots — the rigid and metallic kind — simply aren’t cut out for. Soft-bodied robots, on the other hand, may be able to interact with…
