Brookhaven Lab Publishes Second Edition of Nuclear Nonproliferation Textbook

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Brookhaven Lab has published the second edition of Deterring Nuclear Proliferation: The Importance of IAEA Safeguards, a textbook that provides a history of the origins of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and introduces the ways in which IAEA verifies nation states’ nuclear nonproliferation commitments.

Optical “tweezers” combine with X-rays to enable analysis of crystals in liquids

Argonne National Laboratory

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new technique that combines the power of microscale “tractor beams” with high-powered X-rays, enabling them to see and manipulate crystals freely floating in solution.

4D-Printed Materials Can Be Stiff as Wood or Soft as Sponge

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Imagine smart materials that can morph from being stiff as wood to as soft as a sponge – and also change shape. Rutgers University–New Brunswick engineers have created flexible, lightweight materials with 4D printing that could lead to better shock absorption, morphing airplane or drone wings, soft robotics and tiny implantable biomedical devices. Their research is published in the journal Materials Horizons.

Researchers Get Humans to Think Like Computers

Johns Hopkins University

Computers, like those that power self-driving cars, can be tricked into mistaking random scribbles for trains, fences and even school busses. People aren’t supposed to be able to see how those images trip up computers but in a new study, Johns Hopkins University researchers show most people actually can.

Open-source solution: Researchers 3D-print system for optical cardiography

Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)

Researchers from the George Washington University and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have developed a solution for multiparametric optical mapping of the heart’s electrical activity. This technique is a useful tool for enhancing our understanding of the mechanisms behind cardiac arrhythmias. Arrhythmia causes your heart to beat too quickly, too slowly or erratically. Hijacking the heart’s vital rhythm and pumping function can have serious consequences like a stroke or cardiac arrest.

NASA’s Webb to Explore Galaxies from Cosmic Dawn to Present Day

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

How did the first galaxies in the universe form, and did they make the universe transparent to light? How did later galaxies produce and disperse into the universe the heavier elements that are the building blocks of stars, planets, and even humans? These are questions astronomers will address in some of the first observations made by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.
