Study Finds Extreme Temperature Anomalies Are Warming Faster Than Earth's AverageExternal link

Research by an Indiana University geographer and colleagues finds that spatial patterns of extreme temperature anomalies -- readings well above or below the mean -- are warming even faster than the overall average. Read MoreExternal linkage

Stanford Engineers Take Big Step Toward Using Light Instead of Wires Inside ComputersExternal link

Using a new algorithm, Stanford engineers can design and build a prism-like silicon structure that can bend light at right angles. The goal is to transmit data faster and more efficiently via optical rather than electrical signals. Read MoreExternal linkage

Atomic 'Mismatch' Creates Nano 'Dumbbells'External link

Researchers at Argonne National Lab are closer to understanding the process by which nanoparticles made of more than one material – called heterostructured nanoparticles – form. This process, known as heterogeneous nucleation, is the same mechanism by which beads of condensation form on a windowpane. Read MoreExternal linkage

In a high-temperature superconducting material known as YBCO, light from a laser causes oxygen atoms (red) to vibrate between layers of copper oxide that are just two molecules thick. (The copper atoms are shown in blue.) 12.05.14From the Labs
