Advancing the Description Of ‘Mysterious’ Water To Improve Drug Design

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Interactions with water dominate how drug molecules bind to targets, but it’s tricky to model these interactions, limiting the accuracy of drug design. In a recent paper in The Journal of Chemical Physics, William A. Goddard III and Saber Naserifar from the California Institute of Technology describe their novel approach to building a new description of water (known as a force field) and demonstrate its accuracy.

AIP receives $650,000 Grant to Digitize Rare Books

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

The American Institute of Physics announced today that it has received a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to make a unique collection of rare books in the physical sciences universally accessible. The grant will enable AIP's Niels Bohr Library & Archives to provide global, digital access to the Wenner Collection, a carefully curated repository that features 3,800 volumes, dating back nearly five centuries. The grant will make the Wenner Collection accessible to the public for the first time, allowing for new use and engagement with these rare books.

Daniel S. Clark Wins 2018 Ronald C. Davidson Award for Plasma Physics

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

AIP Publishing has announced its selection of Daniel S. Clark, a physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and leader of the National Ignition Facility’s Capsule Modeling Working Group within the inertial confinement fusion Program, as the winner of the 2018 Ronald C. Davidson Award for Plasma Physics. The annual award is presented by AIP Publishing in collaboration with the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics, to recognize outstanding plasma physics research by an author published in the journal Physics of Plasmas.

Scientists Unravel the Mysteries of Polymer Strands in Fuel Cells

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Fuel cell efficiency of hydrogen fuel cells decreases as the Nafion membrane, used to separate the anode and cathode within a fuel cell, swells as it interacts with water. Russian and Australian researchers have now shown that this Nafion separator membrane partially unwinds some of its constituent fibers, which then protrude away from the surface into the bulk water phase for hundreds of microns. Their results were published in this week’s Journal of Chemical Physics.

New Reservoir Computer Marks First-Ever Microelectromechanical Neural Network Application

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A group of researchers in Canada reports the construction of the first reservoir computing device built with a microelectromechanical system. Published in the Journal of Applied Physics, the neural network exploits the nonlinear dynamics of a microscale silicon beam to perform its calculations. The group’s work looks to create devices that can act simultaneously as a sensor and a computer using a fraction of the energy a normal computer would use.

Algorithmic Innovation May Help Reduce Invasive Heart Procedures

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Doctors use invasive procedures to decide whether an ablation procedure to remove heart tissue is likely to have a positive outcome. CT scans or ultrasounds are useful in determining the structure of a patient’s heart, but invasive electrical procedures are used to identify and localize the source of the atrial fibrillation. Researchers from the University of California, Santa Barbara have developed new algorithms to localize the source of an atrial fibrillation. They report their findings in APL Bioengineering.
