Graphene “Sandwich” Protects Microscopic Materials from Radiation

Graphene Controls Radiation Damage

By placing microscopic materials between two sheets of graphene, researchers have discovered a new technique that protects microscopic materials from the harmful effects of radiation when under the microscope. This technique could soon be the key to enabling the direct study of every single individual atom in a protein chain.

The genius of welding systems Gasparas Kazlauskas is unknown in Lithuania, and it seems he has never been such here. Radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTG) produced with the help of the welding tool he has designed and patented were flew with the Apollo 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 to the surface of the Moon and left there for the rest of the days.

Scientists use DNA to shape graphene into the transistor of the future

graphene 2

Increasingly, quantum computers are predicted to be the next great leap in computational power — but in reality they are more likely to be the next next great leap. Right now we have to tailor experimental quantum chips to their particular mathematical process of interest, literally build them to solve a specific problem; today’s silicon solutions will reach the peak of their potential long before we can go buy Intel or AMD’s new plug-and-play quantum processor.

Engineers invent programming language to build synthetic DNA

1 uwengineersi

Similar to using Python or Java to write code for a computer, chemists soon could be able to use a structured set of instructions to “program” how DNA molecules interact in a test tube or cell.
A team led by the University of Washington has developed a programming language for chemistry that it hopes will streamline efforts to design a network that can guide the behavior of chemical-reaction mixtures in the same way that embedded electronic controllers guide cars, robots and other devices.
