New Method Reveals How Damage Occurs in Human Biological Cells Due to Mechanical Fatigue

Florida Atlantic University

Researchers have developed a novel way to measure how mechanical fatigue affects biological cells. They also have established the important role of this effect in influencing physical properties of biological cells such as red blood cells (RBCs). This new technique assesses the mechanical integrity and fatigue behavior of RBCs using a general microfluidics method that incorporates amplitude-modulated electro-deformation. This method has important applications for mechanical fatigue studies in conjunction with other microenvironments related to health and materials engineering.

Balancing Act: Companies Walking a Fine Line Between Innovation and Cybersecurity

Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA)

Companies are working to balance their desire for new innovations with their need for strong cyber-defenses, a new report from CompTIA, the leading technology industry trade association, finds. CompTIA’s “Cybersecurity for Digital Operations,” based on a survey of 500 U.S. businesses, also reveals that company executives, business staff and technology professionals have distinctly different views on where their organization stands when it comes to cyber-readiness.

New round of DOE awards bolsters quantum information science at SLAC

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have received two DOE awards to explore how quantum information can be passed from one quantum device to another. The goal: develop ways to link quantum devices into quantum computing networks that are much more powerful than today’s technology and into innovative photon detectors that could open up new areas of research, such as novel searches for dark matter.
