[Feature] A year after the deal, nuclear collaborations languish

In Iran, the nuclear agreement signed last year with world powers isn't popular. Economic payoffs have been slow to materialize, and resentment over years of isolation and sanctions remains strong. Getting Iranian and foreign scientists to work together is a potential salve that could also make up for the loss of opportunities for Iranian nuclear scientists under the deal, Iranian officials say. But except for projects in fusion, scientific cooperation is lagging. One initiative that is slow off the mark is the transformation of the underground Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, which housed about 2700 centrifuges for enriching uranium, into an international physics center.

    Random number generators go public

    On 10 July, researchers in Chile will unveil an online public random number service. Later in July, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will launch its Randomness Beacon as a permanent service, upgrading a pilot program that began in 2013. Brazil, too, is planning ... more

    When the cure kills—CBD limits biodiversity research

    The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) commits its 196 nation parties to conserve biological diversity, use its components sustainably, and share fairly and equitably the benefits from the utilization of genetic resources. The last of these objectives was further codified in the Conve ... more

    See-through solar cells could power offices

    Solar windows turn some of the light shining through into electricity. They've been on the market for years. But many of these windows absorb some visible light, leaving them with a reddish or brownish hue, a trait frowned on by architects. Now, new versions are on the way that absorb invis ... more

    It's Not an Illusion

    Researchers have developed a compound that can transform near-infrared light into broadband white-light, offering a cheap, efficient means to produce visible light. The emitted light is also exceedingly directional, a desirable quality for devices like microscopes that require high spatial ... more
