Penetrable Armor

Insects are tough animals to study. One reason is their armor-like coating, called an exoskeleton, which protects their organs. Researchers have discovered a technique to open the exoskeleton in order to study living organs and cells. Results published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology.

First Expert Panel on the Science of the Presidential Debate

Our first expert panel on the Presidential Debate between Trump and Clinton took place on Tuesday, September 27th. The four experts offered a unique scientific perspective, discussing psychological data based on facial gestures, tone and the communicated emotions of the candidates. They also discussed the rhetoric style and aggressive behavior of the candidates, measuring the impact of interruptions and gestures.

New $5M Grant to Support Robotics Research for Spinal Cord Injury Patients

Balance is an essential component of daily life, something many of us take for granted. But not everyone can. Studies have shown, however, that activity-based interventions offer a promising approach, and Columbia Engineering Professor Sunil Agrawal is at the forefront of research efforts to improve recovery through the development of robotic devices that help patients retrain their movements. He recently won a five-year $5 million grant from the New York State Spinal Cord Injury Board.

The ‘Worm’ Holds the Key to Treating Epilepsy; New Possibilities for Rapid Drug Discovery

Current methods to control epilepsy are not only inefficient but haven’t improved in more than 150 years when the first anticonvulsant drug was developed. Researchers have opened up the possibilities for rapid drug screens to treat seizures in the near future by developing the smallest whole-animal electroconvulsive seizure model using a microscopic nematode worm.

NASA’s Hubble Spots Possible Water Plumes Erupting on Jupiter's Moon Europa

New findings from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope show suspected water plumes erupting from Jupiter's icy moon Europa. These observations bolster earlier Hubble work suggesting that Europa is venting water vapor. A team of astronomers, led by William Sparks of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, observed these finger-like projections while viewing Europa's limb as the moon passed in front of Jupiter. The study will be published on Sept. 29 in The Astrophysical Journal.

Crystalline Fault Lines Provide Pathway for Solar Cell Current

A team of scientists studying solar cells made from cadmium telluride, a promising alternative to silicon, has discovered that microscopic "fault lines" within and between crystals of the material act as conductive pathways that ease the flow of electric current. This research-conducted at the University of Connecticut and the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, and described in the journal Nature Energy-may help explain how a common processing technique turns cadmium telluride into an excellent material for transforming sunlight into electricity, and suggests a strategy for engineering more efficient solar devices that surpass the performance of silicon.

SLAC’s X-Ray Laser Glimpses How Electrons Dance with Atomic Nuclei in Materials

The coupling between electrons and phonons determines how efficiently solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. It also plays key roles in superconductors that transfer electricity without losses, topological insulators that conduct electricity only on their surfaces, materials that drastically change their electrical resistance when exposed to a magnetic field, and more. At the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists can study these coupled motions in unprecedented detail with the world’s most powerful X-ray laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS). LCLS is a DOE Office of Science User Facility.
