Newswise: New ORNL software improves neutron spectroscopy data resolution

New ORNL software improves neutron spectroscopy data resolution

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Neutron spectroscopy is an important tool for studying magnetic and thermoelectric properties in materials. But often the resolution, or the ability of the instrument to see fine details, is too coarse to clearly observe features identifying novel phenomena in new advanced materials. To solve this problem, researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, developed a new super-resolution software, called SRINS, that makes it easier for scientists to better understand materials’ dynamical properties using neutron spectroscopy.

Newswise: Breakthrough study on molecular interactions could improve development of new medicines

Breakthrough study on molecular interactions could improve development of new medicines

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

A first-of-its-kind study on molecular interactions by biomedical engineers in the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering will make it easier and more efficient for scientists to develop new medicines and other therapies for diseases such as cancer, HIV, and autoimmune diseases. The study resulted in a mathematical framework that researchers plan to use to develop a web-based app that other researchers can use to speed the development of new therapies for diseases.

How genetics and social games drive evolution of mating systems in mammals

University of California, Santa Cruz

Traditional explanations for why some animals are monogamous and others are promiscuous or polygamous have focused on ecological factors. A new theory focuses instead on social interactions driven by genetically determined behaviors.

A New Way to Optimize Sleep and Light Exposure Can Reduce Jet Lag and Improve Alertness

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

In a series of articles, including one published today in PLOS ONE, researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute explain how they have developed and demonstrated a series of algorithms that can analyze biometric information recorded by a smart device and then recommend the best combination of sleep and light to help a person readjust their circadian rhythm.
