The world's tiniest temperature sensor is powered by radio waves

10-Dec-2015

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have developed a very tiny wireless temperature sensor that is powered in a very special way: from the radio waves that are part of the sensor's wireless network. This means that the sensor needs not even a single wire, nor a battery that ...

HyPer-Tau provides spatially-resolved hydrogen peroxide sensing in cells

07-Dec-2015

By attaching a hydrogen peroxide reporter protein to cellular microtubule structures, researchers have developed the first sensor able to show the location of the key cellular signaling chemical inside living cells with high resolution over time. Knowing the precise location of hydrogen peroxide ...

Sensor sees nerve action as it happens

Technique provides first real-time, eagle-eye view of neural activity in mammal brains

26-Nov-2015

Researchers at Duke and Stanford Universities have devised a way to watch the details of neurons at work, pretty much in real time. Every second of every day, the 100 billion neurons in your brain are capable of firing off a burst of electricity called an action potential up to 100 times per ...

Understanding nature's most striking colors

17-Sep-2015

The tulip called Queen of the Night has a fitting name. Its petals are a lush, deep purple that verges on black. An iridescent shimmer dances on top of the nighttime hues, almost like moonlight glittering off regal jewels. Certain rainforest plants in Malaysian demonstrate an even more striking ...

Plant light sensors came from ancient algae

30-Jul-2015

The light-sensing molecules that tell plants whether to germinate, when to flower and which direction to grow were inherited millions of years ago from ancient algae, finds a new study from Duke University.The findings are some of the strongest evidence yet refuting the prevailing idea that the ...

A graphene-based sensor that is tunable and highly sensitive

14-Jul-2015

Many areas of fundamental research are interested in graphene owing to its exceptional characteristics. It is made of one layer of carbon atoms, which makes it light and sturdy, and it is an excellent thermal and electrical conductor. Despite its apparently limitless potential, however, few ...
