Ionization of water molecules by light generates free electrons in liquid water. After generation, the so-called solvated electron is formed, a localized electron surrounded by a shell of water molecules. Researches at the Max Born Institute, Berlin, have now shown that the electron and its water shell display strong oscillations in the ultrafast localization process, giving rise to terahertz emission for tens of picoseconds.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS), which combine modern networking with physical actuators, can be vulnerable against hackers. Recently, researchers at DGIST developed a new framework for CPSs that is resilient to a sophisticated kind of cyberattack. Unlike existing solutions, the proposed approach allows for real-time detection and recovery from the attack while ensuring stable operation. This paves the way for secure and reliable CPSs across various application domains, such as smart cities and unmanned public transportation.
Deeper understanding of the climate-water-energy nexus will significantly contribute towards planning and managing transnational power grids.
Metal organic framework helps silver catalyst to turn greenhouse gas into useful chemical feedstock.
Computational biologists dig into the origins of the single unique protein in the SARS-CoV-2 lineage; pair of new Berkeley Lab reports explores direct and indirect costs of power interruptions to enable better decision making.
A significant advance in 'optical tweezer' technology, developed by researchers at the UTS Institute for Biomedical Materials and Devices, will help boost biomedical research.
A group of researchers, spanning six universities and three continents, are sounding the alarm on a topic not often discussed in the context of conservation--misinformation. In a recent study published in FACETS, the team, including Dr. Adam Ford, Canada Research Chair in Wildlife Restoration Ecology, and Dr. Clayton Lamb, Liber Ero Fellow, explain how the actions of some scientists, advocacy groups and the public are eroding efforts to conserve biodiversity.
An exquisitely detailed global ocean model simulation from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has given scientists rare insight into where baby sea turtles may go in their "lost years" after they scramble off the sandy beaches where they are born and swim into the open ocean.
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have demonstrated that an experimental safety switch incorporated as part of a chimeric antigen receptor-modified T cell therapy (CAR-T) was effective in reducing the severity of a neurotoxic side effect that occurred in a patient treated with CAR-T therapy for an aggressive form of leukemia.
A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the National Cancer Institute finds a possible link between slow walking pace and an increased risk of death among cancer survivors. The researchers say more work is needed to see if physical activity programs or other interventions could help cancer survivors improve their ability to walk and perhaps increase survival after a cancer diagnosis.
