Nature Communications
Researchers in Basel develop ideal single-photon source
With the help of a semiconductor quantum dot, physicists at the University of Basel have developed a new type of light source that emits single photons. For the first time, the researchers have managed to create a stream of identical photons. They have reported their findings in the scientific journal Nature Communications together with colleagues from the University of Bochum.

Nanoparticles -- small but unique
Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a new way to study nanoparticles one at a time, and have discovered that individual particles that may seem identical in fact can have very different properties. The results, which may prove to be important when developing new materials or applications such as hydrogen sensors for fuel cell cars, will be published in Nature Materials.

New findings move flexible lighting technology toward commercial feasibility
Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology holds promise for developing residential and commercial lighting options with greatly enhanced levels of flexibility as well as environmental, health, and cost benefits -- but challenges remain. A new article in the Journal of Photonics for Energy, published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, identifies next steps toward solving those challenges and reaching commercial feasibility.

Waste coffee used as fuel storage
Scientists have developed a simple process to treat waste coffee grounds to allow them to store methane. The simple soak and heating process develops a carbon capture material with the additional environmental benefits of recycling a waste product. The results are published today, Sept. 3, 2015, in the journal Nanotechnology.

ASU team develops quick way to determine bacteria's antibiotic resistance
Bacteria's ability to become resistant to antibiotics is a growing issue in health care: Resistant strains result in prolonged illnesses and higher mortality rates. One way to combat this is to determine bacteria's antibiotic resistance in a given patient, but that often takes days -- and time is crucial in treatment. ASU scientists have developed a technique that can sort antibiotic-resistant from 'susceptible' bacteria, and it happens in a matter of minutes.

Hot electrons point the way to perfect light absorption
Light-absorbing films can be found in many everyday applications such as solar cells or sensors. Although such 'absorber' films are applied widely, scientists still do not know which mechanism permits the most efficient absorption of light. A team of physicists at Bielefeld University, the University of Kaiserslautern, and the University of Würzburg have now proved that the very efficient scattering of light in ultra-thin rough films traps light until it is absorbed completely.

Mouth guard monitors health markers, transmits information wirelessly to smart phone
Engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a mouth guard that can monitor health markers, such as lactate, cortisol and uric acid, in saliva and transmit the information wirelessly to a smart phone, laptop or tablet. The technology, which is at a proof-of-concept stage, could be used to monitor patients continuously without invasive procedures, as well as to monitor athletes' performance or stress levels in soldiers and pilots.

A new technique to make drugs more soluble
Researchers from Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a new system that can produce stable, amorphous nanoparticles in large quantities that dissolve quickly. The system is so effective that it can produce amorphous nanoparticles from a wide range of materials, including for the first time, inorganic materials with a high propensity towards crystallization, such as table salt.
