Weighing—and Imaging—Molecules One at a Time
Building on their creation of the first-ever mechanical device that can measure the mass of individual molecules, one at a time, a team of Caltech scientists and their colleagues have created nanodevices that can also reveal their shape.
Thin Film Clears Path to Solar Fuels
A nickel-oxide protective coating, developed by Caltech chemists, solves a major problem in the development of ways to harness sunlight to generate fuels.
Feeling Sleepy? Might be the Melatonin
Melatonin supplements are commonly taken as a sleep aid, but new research on zebrafish suggests that the melatonin naturally made in our brains may also be important for sleep processes.
Knocking Out Parasites with Their Own Genetic Code
Hints for how to improve the treatment of parasitic infection might lie within the parasite's genome.
Chemists Solve Key Cellular Puzzle
X-ray “vision” helps scientists determine the structure of a transport channel that is vital for cell survival
How Iron Feels the Heat
New findings regarding iron's unusual thermodynamic stability at high temperatures could one day help researchers design better and stronger steel.
Abundant Salt Makes High-Performing Catalyst
Caltech chemists discover that an abundant potassium compound could replace rare precious metals used in the creation of new drugs and materials, and in agrocience.
Gravitational Waves from Early Universe Remain Elusive
A joint analysis of data from the Planck space mission and the ground-based experiment BICEP2 has found no conclusive evidence of gravitational waves from the birth of our universe.
Getting a Better Grip on HIV
Caltech researchers have developed antibody-based molecules that are hundreds of times better than our natural defenses at binding to and neutralizing the HIV virus.
Why Do We Feel Thirst?
New Assistant Professor of Biology Yuki Oka studies the behavioral triggers for thirst and maintaining bodily homeostasis for survival.
SPIDER Experiment Touches Down in Antarctica
SPIDER, an instrument carrying six Caltech-made telescopes, just landed after 16 days drifting in the wind above Antarctica searching for signs of inflation in the earliest moments of the universe.
