An ultradilute quantum liquid made from ultra-cold atoms – Science Daily

An ultradilute quantum liquid made from ultra-cold atomsScience DailyAlthough at these temperatures the atoms behave as waves and follow the rules of quantum mechanics, they still conserve an intrinsic property of a gas: they expand in the absence of container. In contrast, when two of such gases are mixed together and …

Spaghetti-like, DNA ‘noodle origami’ the new shape of things to come for nanotechnology

Scientists have invented a major new advance in DNA nanotechnology. Dubbed ‘single-stranded origami,’ their new strategy uses one long, thin noodle-like strand of DNA, or its chemical cousin RNA, that can self-fold — without even a single knot — into the largest, most complex structures to date. The strands forming these structures can be made inside living cells, opening up the potential for nanomedicine.
