Physics Boosts Artificial Intelligence Methods
Researchers from Caltech and the University of Southern California (USC) report the first application of quantum computing to a physics problem. By employing quantum-compatible machine learning techniques, they developed a method of extracting a rare Higgs boson signal from copious noise data. Higgs is the particle that was predicted to imbue elementary particles with mass and was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012.

Electroplating: the birth of a single nucleus caught ’in camera’
Electroplating, or electrodeposition, is one of the most important processes in chemistry, in which a metal cation in solution can be reduced to its elemental form by applying an electrical potential to an electrode. This enables electrical contacts to be made in integrated circuits with nanometric precision.

Gravitational waves detected from colliding stars for the first time
100 million years ago two super-dense neutron stars violently merged into one, sending out a burst of radiation and gravitational waves, ripples in space and time, that have been travelling through the Universe ever since. Now, in a first, an international team which includes researchers from the University of Melbourne has detected this stellar collision as gravitational waves, and also observed it as a 'fireball' of electromagnetic waves.

Shaping animal, vegetable and mineral
Nature has a way of making complex shapes from a set of simple growth rules. The curve of a petal, the swoop of a branch, even the contours of our face are shaped by these processes. What if we could unlock those rules and reverse engineer nature's ability to grow an infinitely diverse array of shapes? Scientists from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have done just that.

UW researchers mark first detection of gravitational waves from collision of two neutron stars
About 130 million years ago in the distant galaxy, two neutron stars spiraled toward each other and merged. This violent event initiated ripples in the fabric of spacetime - gravitational waves - which propagated through space at the speed of light. On Aug. 17, 2017, at 5:41 a.m. Pacific Time, those waves arrived at Earth and were picked up by three intricate, kilometers-long gravitational wave detectors, one of which is in Washington state.

LIGO and Virgo Make First Detection of Gravitational Waves Produced by Colliding Neutron Stars
For the first time, scientists have directly detected gravitational waves-ripples in space and time-in addition to light from the spectacular collision of two neutron stars. This marks the first time that a cosmic event has been viewed in both gravitational waves and light. The discovery was made using the U.S.-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF); the Europe-based Virgo detector; and some 70 groundand space-based observatories.

Sometimes - even in matters of science - you have to be lucky. On Aug. 17, scientists around the globe were treated to near-simultaneous observations by separate instruments: One set of Earth-based detectors measured the signature of a cataclysmic event sending ripples through the fabric of space-time, and a space-based detector measured the gamma-ray signature of a high-energy outburst emanating from the same region of the sky.

Penn and KIST Researchers Offer Insights Into Lightweight Material That Expands With Heat
When it comes to taking up room without adding too much weight, the bubble can't be beat. Because they are mostly air, they're ultra-lightweight and can expand to fill any given space. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with researchers from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology recently found a way to exploit these properties of bubbles to create "microbombs," a type of material that expands with heat to form "microclusters," which fit themselves to fill their physical confinement.
