Wiesner team images tiny quasicrystals as they form
Pictured is a transmission electron microscope image of a mesoporous silica nanoparticle, showing the tiling with triangles and squares, and the Fourier analysis (inset) showing 12-fold symmetry. When Israeli scientist Daniel Shechtman first saw a quasicrystal through his microscope in 1982, he reportedly thought to himself, "Eyn chaya kazo" - Hebrew for, "There can be no such creature." But there is, and the quasicrystal has become a subject of much research in the 35 years since Shechtman's Nobel Prize-winning discovery.

New Vehicle Emissions Deceptively Clean
By Samantha Jamison CMU researchers are studying atmospheric fine particles and the effects vehicle standards can have on them, which can cause pollution in cities such as Los Angeles. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have found that newer gasoline vehicles emit less particulate matter, but vapors in the "cleaner" exhaust form particulate matter long after exiting the tailpipe.

Next-gen solar cells could be improved by atomic-scale redesign
Researchers from the Department of Chemistry have uncovered the mechanism that causes new solar cells to break down in air, paving the way for a solution. Solar cells harness energy from the sun and provide an alternative to non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels. However, they face challenges from costly manufacturing processes and poor efficiency - the amount of sunlight converted to useable energy.

Grammar schools helped to create a more unequal society, research suggests
Press release issued: 29 May 2014 The English grammar school system has widened the gap between rich and poor, according to a new study published today. Researchers have reached this conclusion after analysing the pay of more than 2,500 people born between 1961 and 1983. They found a much bigger gap between the wages of the highest and lowest paid individuals born in areas with a selective education system than they did in similar local authorities that had introduced comprehensive schools.

Education, finances affect risk of heart disease more for women than men
ANN ARBOR-Low levels of education and financial assets have long been linked to increased risks of cardiovascular disease. But a new University of Michigan study shows that the association is much greater for middle-aged and older women than it is for men of similar ages. "These findings suggest that health care professionals should consider exploring interventions aimed at reducing the risks of heart disease for this group of women," said Kristi Rahrig Jenkins, a U-M sociologist who co-authored the study published last month in Women & Health.
