Sensing with a Twist: A New Kind of Optical Nanosensor Uses Torque for Signal Processing

APL_Huang_Picture_jg_1.gif

An international group of researchers have put a literal twist on this challenge, demonstrating a new nanoscale optomechanical resonator that can detect torsional motion at near state-of-the-art sensitivity. Their resonator, into which they couple light, also demonstrates torsional frequency mixing, a novel ability to impact optical energies using mechanical motions.

Sugary Secrets of a Cancer-Related Protein

The proteins in human cells are extensively decorated with different types of sugars, a phenomenon called glycosylation. These modifications greatly increase the diversity of protein structure and function, affecting how proteins fold, how they behave, and where they go in cells. New research that will be published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry on Sept. 22 demonstrates that a rare type of glycosylation profoundly affects the function of a protein important for human development and cancer progression.

UF Researcher Offers Tips on Controlling Mosquitoes After Hurricane

Aedesaegypti061217.jpg

Hurricane Irma left a lot of standing water in the yards and homes of Florida residents. So, a University of Florida researcher suggests steps for making sure your home doesn’t become a haven for mosquitoes. Some mosquito species can lay up to 200 eggs at a time, so it’s critical to empty cups, birdbaths, pots or anything else on your property that has standing water.

Team PrISUm Steps Up to World Stage, Prepares to Race Across Australian Outback

PrISUm1.JPG

Team PrISUm is preparing to take its "Solar Utility Vehicle" on a 1,900-mile race across the Outback of Australia. The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is Oct. 8-15. Iowa State's student-engineers think they've built a car that can comfortably make that journey.
