MIT can shrink 3D objects down to nanoscale versions

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.

New property revealed in graphene could lead to better performing solar panels

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.

A new type of quantum computer has smashed every record

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…

Why China's electric car industry is leaving Detroit, Japan and Germany in the dust

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.

MDMA Therapy Gaining Popularity as PTSD Treatment

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.
