Wearable chemical sensor is as good as gold

A novel Raman chemical sensor made from noodlelike threads of gold

27-Jun-2022

Researchers created a special ultrathin sensor, spun from gold, that can be attached directly to the skin without irritation or discomfort. The sensor can measure different biomarkers or substances to perform on-body chemical analysis. It works using a technique called Raman spectroscopy, where ...

Visualizing the invisible

A new model to aid interpretation of atomic resolution molecular images

31-Mar-2022

There are multiple ways to create two- and three-dimensional models of atoms and molecules. With the advent of cutting-edge apparatus that can image samples at the atomic scale, scientists found that traditional molecular models did not fit the images they saw. Researchers have devised a better ...

A single molecule makes a big splash in the understanding of the two types of water

“Because water plays such an important role in chemistry and biology, and even in understanding our universe, we expect our findings to have a wide-ranging impact”

10-Jan-2022

It plays a fundamental role in human existence and is a major component of our universe, yet there are still things we don’t understand about water. To address the knowledge gaps, a collaborative team of Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, and Tohoku ...
