‘Optically Pumped’ Laser Closer to Improving Processing Speed of Sensors

University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

A multi-institutional team of researchers, led by University of Arkansas engineering professor Shui-Qing “Fisher” Yu and a leading Arkansas semiconductor equipment manufacturer, have made significant improvements to a new kind of laser, a semiconducting device that is injected with light, similar to an injection of electrical current. This “optically pumped” laser, which is made of germanium tin grown on silicon substrates, could lead to faster micro-processing speed at much lower cost.

First 3-D Imaging of Excited Quantum Dots

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Quantum dots are rapidly taking center stage in emerging applications and research developments, but researchers are still studying how to precisely control the growth of these nanoscale particles and their underlying quantum behavior. For instance, defects form during production of semiconductor materials, so identical dots can differ in composition from one another. To learn more about these defects, a team has demonstrated imaging of an electronically excited quantum dot at multiple orientations.

An Cyanine Dye Acid Test that Won't Drown in Water

Michigan Technological University

Near-infrared cyanine dyes are go-to tools for studying the inner workings of cells and investigating the biochemistry of disease, including cancer. But even though they have low toxicity and plenty of applications, these fluorescent dyes have a weakness: Put them in water and they quit working. A new dye overcomes this problem.

Lactation Hormone Cues Birds to Be Good Parents

Cornell University

Toppling a widespread assumption that a “lactation” hormone only cues animals to produce food for their babies, Cornell University researchers have shown the hormone also prompts zebra finches to be good parents.

Petroleum Engineering Researchers at Missouri S&T Renew Industry Collaboration on Gel to Reduce Excess Water During Oil Production

Missouri University of Science and Technology

A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher's quest for a superior preformed particle gel that can be injected into oil reservoirs has the financial support of industry heavyweights such as ConocoPhillips, Occidental Petroleum and Daqing Wantong Chemical (DQWT) in China. Each of those companies are members of the university’s Particle Gel Conformance Control Industrial Consortium, a research partnership created in 2014 and recently renewed for a second, three-year term.

Hatchet Enzyme, Enabler of Sickness and of Health, Exposed by Neutron Beams

Georgia Institute of Technology

A pioneering glimpse at an enzyme inside elusive cell membranes elucidates a player in cell health but also in hepatitis C and in Alzheimer's. With neutron beams, researchers open a portal into the hidden world of intramembrane proteins, which a third of the human genome is required to create.
