Particle-scale phenomenon akin to the swerving of a curveball could allow selective separation of suspended nanomaterials. MIT researchers have discovered a phenomenon that could be harnessed to control the movement of tiny particles floating in suspension. This approach, which requires simply applying an external electric field, may ultimately lead to new ways of performing certain industrial or medical processes that require separation of tiny suspended materials.

Gravitational-wave researchers at the University of Birmingham have developed a new model that promises to yield fresh insights into the structure and composition of neutron stars. The model shows that vibrations, or oscillations, inside the stars can be directly measured from the gravitational-wave signal alone.

What if a helmet could be programmed to direct collision impact to regions far from the skull while being a lighter-weight material? What if body armor could suddenly transform into a state that can disperse greater impact when hit by a bullet, while being flexible in regular conditions? A team of r

Physicists propose that the influence of cosmic rays on early life may explain nature's preference for a uniform "handedness" among biology's critical molecules.
