20.12.14.Pinpoint laser heating creates a maelstrom of magnetic nanotextures.A simulation study by researchers from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science has demonstrated the feasibility of using lasers to create and manipulate nanoscale magnetic vortices. The ability to create and control these 'skyrmions' could lead to the development of skyrmion-based information storage devices.RIKEN... 

19.12.14.Research aims to improve regeable batteries by focusing on graphene oxide paper.A Kansas State University engineering team has discovered some of graphene oxide's important properties that can improve sodium- and lithium-ion flexible batteries.Gurpreet Singh, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering, and Lamuel David, doctoral student in mechanical..."Kansas State University... 

19.12.14.Researchers glimpse pathway of sunlight to electricity.Four pulses of laser light on nanoparticle photocells in a University of Oregon spectroscopy experiment has opened a window on how captured sunlight can be converted into electricity.The work, which potentially could inspire devices with improved efficiency in solar energy conversion, was performed on photocells that used lead-sulfide...University of Oregon... 

19.12.14.Gold nanorods target cancer cells.Using tiny gold nanorods, researchers at Swinburne University of Technology have demonstrated a potential breakthrough in cancer therapy.They have shown for the first time that gold nanorods can be used to inhibit cancer cell growth in cervical cancer.Dr Chiara Paviolo from Swinburne's Centre for Micro-Photonics attached tiny particles to the..Phys.org... 

19.12.14.Spider's web weaves way to advanced networks and displays.The next generation of light-manipulating networks may take their lead from designs inspired by spiders and leaves, according to a new report from two Boston College physicists and colleagues at South China Normal University.Structures as commonplace as spider webs and leaf venation show they can lead to near optimal performance..Phys.org... 

 
04.12.14.3D Compass in the Brain.A study on bats' flight pinpoints the neurons that tell us which way we are headed.Pilots are trained to guard against vertigo: a sudden loss of the sense of vertical direction that renders them unable to tell “up” from “down” and sometimes even leads to crashes. Coming up out of a subway station can produce similar confusion:..Weizmann Institute of Science... 

01.12.14.Prof. Haim Garty, Vice President of the Weizmann Institute, 1948-2014.Prof. Haim Garty loved to tell people that he grew up in the “backyard of the Weizmann Institute of Science.” Garty was born in Bulgaria in 1948 and came with his family to Israel in 1950, settling in Rehovot. So his childhood memories were colored by the Institute. In one recollection, “Rehovot...Weizmann Institute of Science...
