Researchers at the University of Minnesota are doing the twist
Researchers in the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering have measured the twisting force, or torque, generated by light on a silicon chip. Their work holds promise for applications such as miniaturized gyroscopes and torsional sensors to measure magnetic field, which can have...
U.S. Department of Energy award opens doors to creating a virtual universe on-demand and tools to cripple cancer - http://bit.ly/2c7AVhl
With great excitement, Argonne held a groundbreaking ceremony this morning for our planned Materials Design Laboratory. Whether it's designing tailored superconductors to transform the nation's electrical grid or finding potential replacements for silicon for next-generation computing, the MDL's mission will be to discover new materials, understand how they work, and put them to use.

Chicago first to begin installing up to 500 nodes on city streets http://bit.ly/2bM7m4N
This week in Chicago, the Array of Things team begins the first phase of the groundbreaking urban sensing project, installing the first of an eventual 500 nodes on city streets. By measuring data on air quality, climate, traffic and other urban features, these pilot nodes kick off an innovative part...
Maybe not "dirty," but more microbially diverse Jack Gilbert NYPost - http://nyp.st/2b9FnB9
Dr. Jack Gilbert wants to make our hospitals dirty. His idea runs counter to hundreds of years of scientific practice. Since a surgeon named Joseph Lister became the first to use antiseptic techniq…
Newly discovered pattern puts to rest decades-old question - http://bit.ly/2a7B6cQ
"What he found when he cooled this material down through its metal-insulator transition temperature, were these extremely weak extra spots that could only be seen at a synchrotron...
