Lernende Maschinen sagen die Eigenschaften von Röntgenstrahlen-Impulsen voraus

Mithilfe lernender Rechner ist es einer Forschungsgruppe mit Beteiligung der Universität Kassel gelungen, die Eigenschaften spezieller Röntgen-Strahlung aus sogenannten Freie-Elektronen-Lasern (XFELs) genau und schnell zu bestimmten. Das macht Experimentatoren in aller Welt viele Untersuchungen von Molekülen und Atomen leichter und eröffnet neue Möglichkeiten der Grundlagenforschung in der Physik, Biologie, Chemie und Materialwissenschaft.

Ill-gotten gains are worth less in the brain

The brain responds less to money gained from immoral actions than money earned decently, reveals a new UCL-led study.

The research, published in Nature Neuroscience and funded by Wellcome, helps explain why most people are reluctant to seek illicit gains by identifying a neural process that dampens the appeal of profiting at other people’s expense. Continue Reading →

So wird Martin Schulz kein Klimakanzler

Die SPD will sich nicht von der Kohle lösen

Gibt das Braunkohleland Brandenburg seine Klimaziele auf, stehen auch die nationalen Klimaziele und damit das Pariser Klimaschutzabkommen infrage. Die großen deutschen Umweltverbände fordern daher den SPD-Vorsitzenden und Kanzlerkandidaten Martin Schulz auf, entsprechende Pläne von SPD-Landeswirtschaftsminister Gerber zu stoppen.

IBM Scientists Observe Elusive Gravitational Effect in Solid-State Physics

Previously thought to only occur in the early stages of the universe and within neutron stars and black holes

ZURICH: An international team of physicists, materials scientists and string theoreticians have observed a phenomenon on Earth that was previously thought to only occur hundreds of light years away or at the time when the universe was born. This result could lead to a more evidence-based model for the understanding the universe and for improving the energy-conversion process in electronic devices. Continue Reading →

Schalter umlegen, Tumorentwicklung stoppen

Freiburger Forscher zeigen, wie ein Protein die unkontrollierte Ausbreitung von Abwehrzellen verhindert

Das menschliche Immunsystem besteht aus Millionen von einzelnen Zellen, die täglich im Knochenmark aus Vorläuferzellen produziert werden. Während ihrer Entwicklung expandieren die Immunzellen und differenzieren sich dann zu reifen Lymphozyten – Abwehrzellen, die Fremdstoffe erkennen und beseitigen. Continue Reading →

New Projects to Make Geothermal Energy More Economically Attractive

California Energy Commission awards $2.7 million to Berkeley Lab for two geothermal projects

Geothermal energy, a clean, renewable source of energy produced by the heat of the earth, provides about 6 percent of California’s total power. That number could be much higher if associated costs were lower. Now scientists at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have launched two California Energy Commission-funded projects aimed at making geothermal energy more cost-effective to deploy and operate.
