    Movable microplatform floating on droplets

    A new approach to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), developed by a team of researchers at MIT, could offer a new way of making movable parts with no solid connections between the pieces, potentially eliminating a major source of wear and failure. Video: Melanie Gonick/MIT more

    Plant-to-human communication

    MIT engineers have transformed spinach plants into sensors that can detect explosives and wirelessly relay that information to a handheld device similar to a smartphone. Video: Melanie Gonick/MITInfrared/fluorescent images: Min Hao Wong more

    Particles attract across long distances

    MIT researchers have found a new kind of long-range interaction between particles, in a liquid medium, that is based entirely on their motions. Video: Melanie Gonick/MIT more

    Physicists create tunable superconductivity in twisted graphene 'nanosandwich'

    When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy. This "magic-angle" transformation in bilayer graphene was obse ... more

    New electrode design may lead to more powerful batteries

    New research by engineers at MIT and elsewhere could lead to batteries that can pack more power per pound and last longer, based on the long-sought goal of using pure lithium metal as one of the battery's two electrodes, the anode. The new electrode concept comes from the laboratory of Ju L ... more

    Finding the source of chemical reactions

    Scientists are constantly searching for the source of things like the origin of the universe, matter or life. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in a collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and several other universiti ... more
