Research will help reduce weight, cost of high-speed missiles

Wichita State University

Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense, receiving a three-year, $33 million contract from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center (CCDC AvMC) for a project focused on emerging materials for high-speed missile applications.

Improving the odds of synthetic chemistry success

University of Utah

In a new publication in Nature, University of Utah chemists Jolene Reid and Matthew Sigman show how analyzing previously published chemical reaction data can predict how hypothetical reactions may proceed, narrowing the range of conditions chemists need to explore. Their algorithmic prediction process, which includes aspects of machine learning, can save valuable time and resources in chemical research.

A Graphene Superconductor That Plays More Than One Tune

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at Berkeley Lab have developed a graphene device that switches from a superconducting material that conducts electricity without losing any energy, to an insulator that resists the flow of electric current – all with a simple flip of a switch.

Tiny Vibration-Powered Robots Are the Size of the World’s Smallest Ant

Georgia Institute of Technology

Researchers have created a new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. Swarms of these “micro-bristle-bots” might work together to sense environmental changes, move materials – or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body.

Limitation exposed in promising quantum computing material

University of Utah

Physicists have theorized that a new type of material, called a three-dimensional (3-D) topological insulator (TI), could be a candidate to create qubits for quantum computing due to its special properties. A study found that when the TI’s insulating layers are as thin as 16 quintuple atomic layers across, the top and bottom metallic surfaces begin to destroy their metallic properties.

Novel nanoparticles deliver CRISPR gene editing tools into the cell with much higher efficiency

Tufts University

Researchers have developed a significantly improved delivery mechanism for the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing method in the liver. The delivery uses biodegradable synthetic lipid nanoparticles that carry the molecular editing tools into cells to precisely alter their genetic code with as much as 90 percent efficiency.

The Golden Age of Heavy Ion Collisions

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Nuclear physicists conducting research at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) traded shift time for presentations on the latest successes and plans for the future at the 2019 RHIC & AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron) Users' Meeting June 4-7. Even as RHIC's beams continued to collide for the completion of Run 19, there was plenty to celebrate in terms of machine performance and scientific highlights.
