A second life for old treated wood
(Institut national de la recherche scientifique - INRS) Every year, several thousand tons of treated wood waste is buried, incinerated, or mixed with untreated wood waste. The management of this waste is problematic because treated wood contains preservatives such as arsenic, chromium, and copper to slow its deterioration. To remedy this, INRS researchers have found a simple, effective, and environmentally friendly solution. They have developed a process that successfully removed more than 90 percent of the contaminants present in treated wood waste in experiments conducted on a small scale in the laboratory.

These bacteria produce gold by digesting toxic metals
(Martin-Luther-Universit ä t Halle-Wittenberg) High concentrations of heavy metals, like copper and gold, are toxic for most living creatures. This is not the case for the bacterium C. metallidurans, which has found a way to extract valuable trace elements from a compound of heavy metals without poisoning itself. One interesting side-effect: the formation of tiny gold nuggets. A team of researchers led by Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has discovered the molecular processes that take place inside the bacteria. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

What the End of Net Neutrality Might Mean for Medtech
The recent vote by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to roll back mandated "net neutrality" has caused much concern by those who fear a "pay-to-play" business model will marginalize all but a handful of favored applications and platforms. Those concerns have extended to telemedicine advocates—but it is probably way too soon to predict how or if device-enabled care specifically might be affected. Net neutrality, mandated by a 2015 FCC order, ensured that Internet service providers (ISPs) could not prioritize one set of bits over another traversing their networks. The new order, dubbed Rest...

Multiplex recording of cellular events over time on CRISPR biological tape
Although dynamics underlie many biological processes, our ability to robustly and accurately profile time-varying biological signals and regulatory programs remains limited. Here we describe a framework for storing temporal biological information directly in the genomes of a cell population. We developed a "biological tape recorder" in which biological signals trigger intracellular DNA production that is then recorded by the CRISPR-Cas adaptation system. This approach enables stable recording over multiple days and accurate reconstruction of temporal and lineage information by sequencing CRISPR arrays. We further...

Synthesis of ultrasmall, homogeneously alloyed, bimetallic nanoparticles on silica supports
Supported nanoparticles containing more than one metal have a variety of applications in sensing, catalysis, and biomedicine. Common synthesis techniques for this type of material often result in large, unalloyed nanoparticles that lack the interactions between the two metals that give the particles their desired characteristics. We demonstrate a relatively simple, effective, generalizable method to produce highly dispersed, well-alloyed bimetallic nanoparticles. Ten permutations of noble and base metals (platinum, palladium, copper, nickel, and cobalt) were synthesized with average particle sizes from 0.9 to 1.4 nanometer...

Numerical evidence of fluctuating stripes in the normal state of high-Tc cuprate superconductors
Upon doping, Mott insulators often exhibit symmetry breaking where charge carriers and their spins organize into patterns known as stripes. For high–transition temperature cuprate superconductors, stripes are widely suspected to exist in a fluctuating form. We used numerically exact determinant quantum Monte Carlo calculations to demonstrate dynamical stripe correlations in the three-band Hubbard model, which represents the local electronic structure of the copper-oxygen plane. Our results, which are robust to varying parameters, cluster size, and boundary conditions, support the interpretation of experimental observ...

Perovskite solar cells with CuSCN hole extraction layers yield stabilized efficiencies greater than 20%
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) with efficiencies greater than 20% have been realized only with expensive organic hole-transporting materials. We demonstrate PSCs that achieve stabilized efficiencies exceeding 20% with copper(I) thiocyanate (CuSCN) as the hole extraction layer. A fast solvent removal method enabled the creation of compact, highly conformal CuSCN layers that facilitate rapid carrier extraction and collection. The PSCs showed high thermal stability under long-term heating, although their operational stability was poor. This instability originated from potential-induced degradation of the CuSCN/Au contact. The ...
