A Pressure Sensor at Your Fingertips

Tokyo, Japan — Researchers have developed an ultrathin pressure sensor that can be attached directly to the skin. It can measure how fingers interact with objects to produce useful data for medical...

Sorting Out Viruses with Machine Learning

Osaka, Japan — The ongoing global pandemic has created an urgent need for rapid tests that can diagnose the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the pathogen that causes COVID-19, and distinguish it from...

Lighting the Way to Selective Membrane Imaging

Kanazawa, Japan — Researchers at Kanazawa University monitored the emission of blue-green light from water-soluble tetraphenylethene molecules adsorbed at a phospholipid-adsorbed liquid-liquid interface...

An Artificial Cell on a Chip

Basel-Town, Switzerland — Researchers at the University of Basel have developed a precisely controllable system for mimicking biochemical reaction cascades in cells. Using microfluidic technology,...

Highly Selective Membranes

Tokyo, Japan — Membranes with microscopic pores are useful for water filtration. The effect of pore size on water filtration is well-understood, as is the role of ions, charged atoms, that interact...
