Singapore Scientists Grow Mini Human Brains

Scientists in Singapore have made a big leap on research on the 'mini-brain'. These advanced mini versions of the human midbrain will help researchers...

Nanodisks Drive a Polarizing Transformation

Polarizing filters produce richer, less reflective images by limiting vibrating light waves to one specific orientation. However, these filters only work with light that...

Controlling Anisotropy

The huge energy consumption of the world’s data centers creates an urgent need to develop electronic devices that can process information with reduced power...

Perovskite Can Take the Heat

Solar cells that are cheaper and easier to manufacture could challenge the dominance of silicon, with new research showing an alternative material called perovskite...
