Enhanced NMR reveals chemical structures in a fraction of the time

MIT researchers have developed a way to dramatically enhance the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), a technique used to study the structure and composition of many kinds of molecules, including proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Using this new method, scientists should be able to analyze in mere minutes structures that would […]

Fortifying the future of cryptography

As a boy growing up in a small South Indian village, Vinod Vaikuntanathan taught himself calculus by reading books his grandfather left lying around the house. Years later in college, he toiled away in the library studying number theory, which deals with the properties and relationships of numbers, primarily positive integers. This field of study […]

Leg nerves activated by light offer new path to restoring mobility

The very first time, Durch scientific study has proven that nerves designed to express proteins that may be activated by light can establish limb movements that may be adjusted in tangible-time, using cues generated through the motion from the limb itself. The process results in movement that’s smoother and fewer fatiguing than similar electrical systems […]
