GREEN BUSINESS HEADLINES
›  Quality of laser beam shaping can be enhanced at no extra cost
Researchers have developed a technique for improving accuracy of laser beam shaping and wavefront obtained by conventional methods with no additional cost by optimizing virtual phase grating.
›  Nanosized container with photoswitches: Release of cargo upon irradiation in water
Researchers have developed a nanosized container bearing photoswitches that takes up hydrophobic compounds of various size and shape in water and subsequently releases them quantitatively by non-invasive light stimulus. The installed switches allow reusing of the container after successful release of the cargo. The novel system represents a versatile platform for future developments in fields such as materials chemistry and biomedicine.
›  Rapid destruction of Earth-like atmospheres by young stars
The discoveries of thousands of planets orbiting stars outside our solar system has made questions about the potential for life to form on these planets. Fundamentally important for the habitability of a planet is whether or not it can hold onto an atmosphere. A new study by has shown that young stars can rapidly destroy the atmospheres of Earth-like planets, which is a significant additional difficulty for the formation of life outside our solar system.
›  Schadenfreude: Your pain is my gain
If someone in the workplace is mistreated, their colleagues may respond with empathy -- or with schadenfreude. The latter emotion, according to a new study, occurs primarily in highly competitive working environments, when one person's misfortune facilitates another's goals. Even worse, schadenfreude can be contagious. For this reason, it is worth establishing an inclusive working climate and team-based incentives.
›  43-year-old mystery of Polynya in Antarctica unraveled
A new study has unraveled the four decade long mystery surrounding the occurrence of a mid-sea Polynya -- a body of unfrozen ocean that appeared within a thick body of ice during Antarctica's winter almost two years ago.
›  Targeting how fungi 'taste' wheat could be key to developing control
Exploring how a hazardous fungal pathogen 'tastes' its surroundings within a wheat plant to coordinate virulence could be the key to developing new control strategies, scientists believe.
›  Atom interaction discovery valuable for future quantum technologies
By breaking with conventionality, physicists have opened up new research and technology opportunities involving the basic building block of the world -- atoms. Researchers put one atom inside each of two laser beams before moving them together until they started to interact with each other.
›  Growing up in poverty increases diagnoses of psychosis-spectrum mental illnesses
Growing up in impoverished urban neighborhoods more than doubles your chances over the average person of developing a psychosis-spectrum disorder by the time you reach middle adulthood, according to a new study of nearly 4,000 families who were monitored over 30 years.
›  Antarctica: The final frontier for marine biological invasions?
A new study looking at the implications of increased shipping activity and the impact on Antarctic marine biodiversity. The research is an important step in the quest to understand whether invasive species, introduced by shipping, will find the Antarctic marine environment more hospitable as Antarctica's climate changes.
›  Energy-saving new LED phosphor
The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one-sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.
›  Scientists develop swallowable self-inflating capsule to help tackle obesity
Scientists have developed a self-inflating weight management capsule that could help battle obesity, and be an alternative to intragastric balloons. The prototype capsule contains a balloon that can be self-inflated with a handheld magnet once it is in the stomach, thus inducing a sense of fullness.
›  Proteins stand up to nerve cell regression
Fruit fly studies reveal proteins that promote healthy nervous system development by preventing the reversal of nerve cell differentiation.
