Dual Frequency Comb Generated on a Single Chip Using a Single Laser

Posted: 02 Mar 2018 07:05 AM PST

Newswise imageColumbia Engineers are the first to miniaturize dual-frequency combs by putting two frequency comb generators on a single millimeter-sized silicon-based chip. This could lead to low-cost, portable sensing and spectroscopy in the field in real-time. "This is the first time a dual comb has been generated on a single chip using a single laser," says Electrical Engineering Prof. Michal Lipson who led the team with Applied Physics Prof. Alexander Gaeta.

JHU Scientists Discover How Extremophiles Flourish in Stressful Environments

Posted: 02 Mar 2018 07:05 AM PST

RNA makes salt-loving microbes known as "extremophiles" highly resistant to the phenomenon oxidative stress - the uncontrollable production of unstable forms of oxygen called "free radicals," which can negatively affect DNA, proteins, and lipids in cells.

Text-Messaging Can Help Liver-Transplant Candidates Maintain Sobriety

Posted: 02 Mar 2018 07:00 AM PST

Each year in the U.S., more than 40,000 patients need a liver transplant because of complications associated with cirrhosis and liver failure. Alcohol-related liver disease (ALD) alone accounts for nearly 30 percent of all liver transplants, yet up to 50 percent of patients with alcoholism return to drinking within five years of undergoing a liver transplant. Many transplant centers now require a minimum of six months of alcohol abstinence prior to placing candidates on the United Organ Network Sharing waiting list. This pilot study examined the use of text messaging as an alcohol relapse-prevention intervention for patients with ALD scheduled to undergo a liver transplant.

Virus-Like Particle Could Lead to New Cancer Vaccine

Posted: 02 Mar 2018 06:05 AM PST

Michigan State University scientists are engineering a virus-like particle, known as Qβ, that will generate anti-cancer immune responses in the body and potentially be used as a new vaccine for the treatment of cancer. This treatment will rotect animals against cancerous cells that are currently untreatable, and could easily translate to vaccines for humans' use of spontaneously occurring cancers.
