Hybrid Optics Bring Color Imaging Using Ultrathin Metalenses Into Focus

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 11:45 AM PST

Newswise imageIn a paper published Feb. 9 in Science Advances, scientists at the University of Washington announced that they have successfully combined two different imaging methods -- a type of lens designed for nanoscale interaction with lightwaves, along with robust computational processing -- to create full-color images.

Action Plan Released to Conserve One of Africa's Richest Sites for Biodiversity

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 11:05 AM PST

Newswise imageA team of scientists led by WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) has developed a conservation blueprint to protect one of the most biodiverse regions in Africa: the Albertine Rift, home to mountain and Grauer's gorillas, golden monkeys, chimpanzees, elephants, and 162 vertebrate, and 350 plant species unique to this region.

Neutron Study of Glaucoma Drugs Offers Clues About Enzyme Targets for Aggressive Cancers

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 10:05 AM PST

Newswise image A team of researchers from ORNL's Energy and Transportation Science Division is using neutron imaging to study particulate filters that collect harmful emissions in vehicles. A better understanding of how heat treatments and oxidation methods can remove layers of soot and ash from these filters could lead to improved fuel-efficiency.

45-Year-Old Telescope Gets a Makeover to Demystify Dark Energy

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

Newswise imageForty-five years ago this month, a telescope tucked inside a 14-story, 500-ton dome atop a mile-high peak in Arizona took in the night sky for the first time and recorded its observations on glass photographic plates. Today, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Nicholas U. Mayall Telescope and starts preparing for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe. This map could help determine why the universe is expanding at faster and faster rates, driven by an unknown force called dark energy.

Researchers Identify Gene That Improves Plant Growth and Conversion to Biofuels

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

A research team led by the University of Georgia has discovered that manipulation of the same gene in poplar trees and switchgrass produced plants that grow better and are more efficiently converted to biofuels.

Innovative Restoration of Coral Reefs Helps Protect Caribbean Islands

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz and the Nature Conservancy have measured the protective role of coral reefs and field-tested a solution that reduces coastal risks by combining innovative engineering with restoration ecology.

Despite Odds, Fish Species That Bypasses Sexual Reproduction Is Thriving

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

Newswise imageAn international team of scientists has sequenced the genome of the Amazon molly, a fish that reproduces asexually. The researchers expected that the asexual organism would be at a genetic disadvantage, but the Amazon molly is thriving.

Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

Newswise imageToday, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Mayall Telescope in Arizona so that it can prepare for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe. This map could help to solve the mystery of dark energy, which is driving the accelerating expansion of the universe.

No Llamas Required

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

Newswise imageAntibodies made by camels, llamas and alpacas allow scientists to study the structure and function of proteins in disease and health. While valuable, the approach is time-consuming, costly and often unsuccessful. Overcoming this barrier, scientists have devised a faster, cheaper and more reliable way to create these critical antibodies using yeast in a test tube.

MSU Uses $3 Million NASA Grant to Find Better Ways to Regulate Dams

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 07:20 AM PST

Michigan State University researchers, equipped with $3 million from NASA, will investigate innovative methods to improve dams so that they are less harmful to people and the environment.

Narrowing in on the W Boson Mass

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Scientists working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)--the world's largest particle collider, hosted at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory--have precisely measured the mass of the W boson, a particle that plays a weighty role in a delicate balancing act of the quantum universe.

Captured Electrons Excite Nuclei to Higher Energy States

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Newswise imageFor the first time, scientists demonstrated a long-theorized nuclear effect called nuclear excitation by electron capture. This advance tests theoretical models that describe how nuclear and atomic realms interact and may also provide new insights into how star elements are created.

Naltrexone Treatment Is More Effective for Heavy Drinkers Who Use Nicotine/Cigarettes

Posted: 12 Feb 2018 07:00 AM PST

There are medications available to help people who drink excessive amounts of alcohol reduce or stop their drinking. One such medication is the opioid antagonist naltrexone, which has been approved for treatment of alcohol dependence by the Food and Drug Administration. Although naltrexone can reduce alcohol craving and help promote recovery for some individuals, it does not work for everyone. Prior research suggested that nicotine use/smoking status and genetic differences were predictors of response to naltrexone. This study further investigated the impact of nicotine use/smoking status and variation in the mu opioid receptor gene (OPRM1), specifically, an A118G single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP, or DNA sequence variation), on the effects of naltrexone on a range of drinking outcomes.

Scalable Two-Dimensional Materials Advance Future-Gen Electronics
