The scientists' approach starts by creating a scaffold made of polyacrylate, an absorbent material you find in diapers. They then soak the structure in a solution of fluorescein molecules that attach to the scaffold when exposed to light -- creators can use lasers to place most any particle wherever they want, whether it's genetic material or metal nanoparticles.
An international research team, co-led by a physicist at the University of California, Riverside, has discovered a new mechanism for ultra-efficient charge and energy flow in graphene, opening up opportunities for developing new types of light-harvesting devices. The researchers fabricated pristine graphene - graphene with no impurities - into different geometric shapes, connecting narrow ribbons and crosses to wide open rectangular regions.
BERLIN (Reuters) - Work four days a week, but get paid for five? It sounds too good to be true, but companies around the world that have cut their work week have found that it leads to higher productivity, more motivated staff and less burnout.
IonQ was founded on a gamble that 'trapped ion quantum' computing could outperform the silicon-based quantum computers that Google and others are building. As of right now, it does. IonQ has constructed a quantum computer that can perform calculations on…

Using CRISPR to modify pig genome shows promise against deadly disease. Andrew Masterson reports.
Scania, Swedish manufacturer of commercial vehicles, is developing a fuel cell refuse truck together with Renova, a waste handling company in western Sweden.
Researchers have found a new catalyst that uses about 25 percent of the platinum that is used in current technology.
r/Futurology: Welcome to r/Futurology, a subreddit devoted to the field of Future(s) Studies and speculation about the development of humanity, technology, and civilization.
The last few years have seen a great deal of uncertainty around the kind of jobs that will exist in the future and indeed whether enough jobs will exist in the face of rising technological capabilities.
After the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and '70s crippled China's economy, the country began to open its markets to the outside world. The aim was to bring in technological know-how from abroad that domestic firms could then assimilate. By the early '80s, foreign automakers were allowed in on the condition that they form a joint venture with a Chinese partner.
An oddity of an animal lived and thrived in a lab at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich in the past few years. On the surface, they looked like normal, healthy baboons.

It is a rapidly-evolving domain with the potential to disrupt virtually all economic sectors.
MDMA, the active ingredient in the recreational drug ecstasy, has shown great promise in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. In fact, it showed such promise during safety trials that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designated MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD as a "breakthrough therapy," meaning the administration believes it may prove more beneficial than current treatments.
