Black hole holograms

Japanese researchers propose a new holographic method to simulate black holes with a tabletop experiment

Japanese researchers show how a holographic tabletop experiment can be used to simulate the physics of a black hole. This work may lead the way to a m...

Nuclear pore complex outer rings: no longer “one size fits all”

A team led by researchers from Osaka University and NICT finds that, contrary to popular belief, the outer rings of eukaryotic cell nuclear pore complexes are asymmetrical rather than perfectly identical

In eukaryotic cells, molecules can only move into or out of the nucleus through specialized channels called nuclear pore complexes (NPCs). Each NPC ha...

Applying pressure is way toward generating more electricity from waste heat

Researchers apply pressure to a thermoelectric material to better understand quantum phenomena and in doing so are able to increase the material's ability to produce electricity from waste heat by 100%

The ability of a thermoelectric material to produce electricity from waste heat was improved more than twofold by a Japan-based research team led by O...

Settling the Debate: Solving the Electronic Surface States of Samarium Hexaboride

Researchers show that the origin of the electronic current on the exterior of samarium hexaboride crystals is due to a kind of symmetry called a “topologically protected surface”

Researchers at Osaka University show that samarium hexaboride is a topological insulator, which allows electrons to flow only along its exterior surfa...

Artificial peptide bond formation provides clues to creation of life on Earth

Researchers at Osaka University establish a simple and rapid mechanism of amide-bond formation between monomers strongly resembling the building blocks of proteins

Using amino thioacids rather than regular amino acids, Osaka University researchers established a new method to form α-peptide bonds for polypeptide c...

Location is everything for plant cell differentiation

Researchers from Osaka University find that the location of proteins within a cell as well as the position of the cell itself are important for determining cell type in model plant Arabidopsis thaliana

During development, plant cell differentiation is guided by location rather than lineage. Now, researchers from Osaka University have shown that the a...
