Vortex-Antivortex Pairs Found in Magnetic Trilayers

A international team of researchers has discovered magnetic vortex-antivortex pairs arising from correlated electron spins in a newly engineered trilayer material. The discovery could advance memory cells and points to the potential development of 3-D magnetic logic circuits. They discuss their work in this week’s Applied Physics Letters.

Barrier Proteins in Tumors are Possible Key to Immunotherapy Success

By comparing variations in protein expression in tumor samples from a single melanoma patient, researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg~Kimmel Institute and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center say their findings have the potential to reveal some of the mechanisms underlying response or resistance to immunotherapy drugs. The “proof of concept” findings, published online Feb. 13, 2017, in Clinical Cancer Research, point to distinct variations not in the genetic code of each tumor sample, but in the expression levels of certain proteins encoded by normal genes.

Announcement: Scilight -- New From AIP Publishing

The American Institute of Physics and AIP Publishing are pleased to announce the launch of Scilight -- brief written summaries of research articles emphasizing the significance of a contribution to a field of science. Scilight benefits both journal authors and the scientific community by giving authors another way to promote their research and a place for scientists and science enthusiasts to quickly and easily scan the latest, important breakthroughs in the world of physics.

Curtains for Privacy and Quiet

ASA-PR-2pAAb6-soundcurtain2.jpg

Anyone who works in an office with an open floor plan becomes aware of a major downside of these otherwise collaborative spaces: It is impossible to hold confidential meetings with colleagues. One solution developed by a German textile manufacturer is a system of sound-insulating curtains to create temporary, sound-proofed “variable zones” within the open office, where private conversations can occur. The system will be described by Jonas Schira of Gerriets GmbH during Acoustics ’17 Boston.

Ultrasound Imaging of the Brain and Liver

Ultrasound -- sound with frequencies higher than those audible to humans -- is commonly used in diagnostic imaging of the body's soft tissues, including muscles, joints, tendons and internal organs. A technology called high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is also being explored for therapeutic uses including the removal of uterine fibroids and the destruction of tumors. A suite of noninvasive, adaptive focusing techniques -- that allow ultrasonic beams to be focused through the rib cage and skull -- will be described during Acoustics ’17 Boston.
