Researchers have created diamond-based anti-counterfeiting labels that are known in the industry as physically unclonable functions (PUFs).
Konstanz chemists have created a mineral plastic that is hard, non-flammable, self-healing and can be produced at room temperature in water. It is also biodegradable.
The NanoSight Pro nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) system from Malvern Panalytical features advanced engineering and offers a sleek design with a compact footprint.
A newly developed protein that works like an antifreeze agent could be used to freeze and defrost biological material without causing any damage.
It was previously believed that the solid nature of gels emerges through glass formation.
Scientists have developed a cheap, rapid and portable diagnostic test to analyse sputum samples for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) from suspected TB patients.
While many materials melt when heated, Japanese researchers have discovered a novel material in which melting can be induced by ultraviolet light instead of being induced only by heat.
Surface scientists have developed a simple method to produce large and very clean 2D samples from a range of materials using three different substrates.
It is common among archaeologists to soak iron artefacts in an alkaline deoxygenated wash bath to conserve as much of the objects as possible.
