3-D quantum gas atomic clock offers new dimensions in measurement

09-Oct-2017

JILA physicists have created an entirely new design for an atomic clock, in which strontium atoms are packed into a tiny three-dimensional (3-D) cube at 1,000 times the density of previous one-dimensional (1-D) clocks. In doing so, they are the first to harness the ultra-controlled behavior of a ...

Light-activated nanoparticles can supercharge current antibiotics

06-Oct-2017

Light-activated nanoparticles, also known as quantum dots, can provide a crucial boost in effectiveness for antibiotic treatments used to combat drug-resistant superbugs such as E. coli and Salmonella, new University of Colorado Boulder research shows. Multi-drug resistant pathogens, which evolve ...
