Thermoelectric material discovery sets stage for new forms of electric power in the future

Researchers have created a new and potentially paradigm-shifting high-performance thermoelectric compound. The team created a new hybrid compound in which the crystalline and amorphous sublattices are intertwined into a one-of-a-kind crystal-amorphic duality.

Uncovering the secret of the hunger switch in the brain

Researchers have revealed the mechanism of action of the master switch for hunger in the brain: the melanocortin receptor 4, or MC4 receptor for short. They have also clarified how this switch is activated by setmelanotide (Imcivree), a drug recently approved for the treatment of severe obesity caused by certain genetic changes.

Wearable sensors that detect gas leaks

A research team has developed wearable gas sensors that display an instantaneous visual holographic alarm.

The future of particle accelerators is here

A new accelerator and detector will serve as a kind of camera, taking 3D images and movies of electrons colliding with polarized protons and ions. Like a CT scanner for atoms, the EIC will let scientists see how force-carrying gluon particles hold together quarks, the internal components of protons and neutrons. It will also offer insights into the...

Neural plasticity depends on this long noncoding RNA's journey from nucleus to synapse

A synaptically localized long noncoding RNA proves to be an important regulator of neural plasticity.

Study reveals how some antibodies can broadly neutralize ebolaviruses

Some survivors of ebolavirus outbreaks make antibodies that can broadly neutralize these viruses -- and now, scientists have illuminated how these antibodies can disable the viruses so effectively. The insights may be helpful for developing effective therapies.

Sunlight to solve the world's clean water crisis

Researchers have developed technology that could eliminate water stress for millions of people, including those living in many of the planet's most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.

Alpine plants are losing their white 'protective coat' too early in spring

Snow cover in the Alps has been melting almost three days earlier per decade since the 1960s. This trend is temperature-related and cannot be compensated by heavier snowfall. By the end of the century, snow cover at 2,500 meters could disappear a month earlier than today, as simulations by environmental scientists at the University of Basel demonstrate.

Heart health of shift workers linked to body clock

Working hours that deviate from an individual's natural body clock are associated with greater cardiovascular risk, according to recent research.

New nanoscale device for spin technology

Spin waves could unlock the next generation of computer technology, a new component allows physicists to control them.
