Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices.
New technique promises tunable laser devices
River deposits exist across the surface of Mars and record a surface environment from over 3.5 billion years ago that was able to support liquid water at the surface.
More evidence of water on Mars
New research proves cellular proteins identify and communicate with one another using molecular ‘add-ons’. Scientists liken the protein add-ons to web browser plug-ins.
Proteins have 'add-ons', just like web browsers
New research suggested the ocean conditions during Hurricane Joaquin could have produced a rogue wave capable of downing El Faro, a merchant vessel that sank just east of the Bahamas in 2015.

Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) have discovered a new tri-anion particle, a type of particle with three more electrons than protons.
Physicists discover super stable tri-anion particle
When it comes to some oddball fish, looks can be deceiving.
3D scans of fossils suggest new fish family tree
A new paper-based sensor patch developed by researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York could allow diabetics to effectively measure glucose levels during exercise.
New self-powered paper patch could help diabetics measure glucose
Biochemical engineers at the Johns Hopkins University have used sequences of DNA molecules to induce shape-changing in water-based gels, demonstrating a new tactic to produce ‘soft’ robots and ‘smart’ medical devices that do not rely on cumbersome wires, batteries or tethers.
New way to make 'soft robots'
Researchers have discovered the magma source, or so-called ‘hot zone’, of a supervolcano in southern Italy.
