Stanford scientists have developed a new type of flow battery that involves a liquid metal; it more than doubled the maximum voltage of conventional flow batteries and could lead to affordable storage of renewable power.
Stanford researchers say one way to solve the mystery of why some breast cancers are more likely to spread could come from studying the cell’s mechanical properties. Part of a series on tiny answers to biology's biggest questions.
Left- and right-handed versions of molecules can be hard to tell apart but can have devastatingly different effects. The Dionne lab is developing an optical filter to sort these molecules, which could lead to purer and safer drugs and agrichemicals.
