Does my eye deceive me? Not with these digital forensics tools
The Internet is awash with images and videos that may hold national security and intelligence value, but differentiating real images from altered ones can be formidable, even for digital forensics experts. Nasir Memon, professor at NYU Tandon, and researchers from around the world are designing the ultimate digital forensics tools -- technologies so advanced they'll be able to catch the subtlest manipulations of still images and video, discerning whether media has been tampered with and how.

Tiny crystals and nanowires could join forces to split water
Scientists are pursuing a tiny solution for harnessing one of the world's most abundant sources of clean energy: water. By marrying teeny crystals called quantum dots to miniature wires, the researchers are developing materials that show promise for splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen fuel, which could be used to power cars, buses, boats and other modes of transportation.

Healthy knees
Every year, about 250,000 people in the US -- primarily young adults participating in sports -- sustain injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), and about half of these individuals end up having reconstructive surgery. But even more disturbing is that some 30 to 60 percent of those who undergo surgery develop osteoarthritis (OA) within five years. New research at the University of Delaware will examine the biochemistry and biomechanics of the development of OA after ACL surgery.
