How to Give
Seeing Quantum Motion
Even large objects obey quantum physics, meaning they are never quite at rest. Caltech researchers have developed a way to detect—and manipulate—this underlying quantum motion.
Our Solar System May Have Once Harbored Super-Earths
Where are they now? Their demise might have cleared the way for the formation of planets like home sweet Earth.
A Cool Process to Make Better Graphene
Material's unique properties in strength and electrical mobility far outpace silicon, with the potential to revolutionize an array of different engineering and scientific fields.
Ice Sheets Melting Faster than Expected?
Using new computer models that account for friction, scientists at Caltech find that the Antarctic ice sheets are more sensitive to climate change than we thought.
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.
