Harvesting the heart’s energy to power life-saving devices

The heart’s motion is so powerful that it can recharge devices that save our lives, according to new research from Dartmouth College. Using a dime-sized invention developed by engineers at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, the kinetic energy of the heart can be converted into electricity to power a wide-range of implantable devices,

A drinkable cocktail of designer molecules shows promise for Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

Yale researchers have identified a drinkable cocktail of designer molecules that interferes with a crucial first step of Alzheimer’s and even restores memories in mice, they report Jan. 2 in the journal Cell Reports. The binding of amyloid beta peptides to prion proteins triggers a cascade of devasting events in the progression of Alzheimer’s — accumulation

Making back surgery safer, faster and less expensive with a new imaging system

Dartmouth engineers and physicians develop innovative stereovision system Researchers at Dartmouth College have found a way to make back surgery safer, faster and more cost effective. MRIs and CT scans help surgeons identify spine problems, like compressed vertebrae or herniated disks, but finding a clear path to those problem areas is not always as straightforward.

New-generation iodine-removing material could hold the key to cleaning radioactive waste

Researchers at Dartmouth College have developed a new material that scrubs iodine from water for the first time. The breakthrough could hold the key to cleaning radioactive waste in nuclear reactors and after nuclear accidents like the 2011 Fukushima disaster. The new-generation microporous material designed at Dartmouth is the result of chemically stitching small organic

Molecular machines are ready to join forces and take on real-world work

3-D printing turns nanomachines into life-size workers Chenfeng Ke, CC BY-ND Chenfeng Ke, Dartmouth College Nanomachines are tiny molecules – more than 10,000 lined up side by side would be narrower than the diameter of a human hair – that can move when they receive an external stimulus. They can already deliver medication within a

Fighting malnutrition with microparticles and micronutrients

New strategy for encapsulating nutrients makes it easier to fortify foods with iron and vitamin A. About 2 billion people around the world suffer from deficiencies of key micronutrients such as iron and vitamin A. Two million children die from these deficiencies every year, and people who don’t get enough of these nutrients can develop

Understanding the behaviour and body language of zoo animals could be the key to their welfare

Watching the behaviour and body language of zoo animals could be the key to understanding and improving their welfare, new research suggests. Traditionally, zoos have focussed on more straightforward measures such as whether animals are eating, sleeping and breeding. The new review, by the University of Exeter and the University of Winchester, says zoos have made

Discovered: An entirely new state of matter

In a finding that reveals an entirely new state of matter, research published in the journal Science shows that Cooper pairs, electron duos that enable superconductivity, can also conduct electricity like normal metals do. For years, physicists have assumed that Cooper pairs, the electron duos that enable superconductors to conduct electricity without resistance, were two-trick

A new type of material generates electrical current very efficiently from temperature differences

A new type of material generates electrical current very efficiently from temperature differences. This allows sensors and small processors to supply themselves with energy wirelessly. Thermoelectric materials can convert heat into electrical energy. This is due to the so-called Seebeck effect: If there is a temperature difference between the two ends of such a material,
