Nanosensor platform could advance detection of ovarian cancer


Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women, and it’s so deadly, in part, because the disease is hard to catch in its early stages. A team of researchers is working to change that. Their approach uses machine learning techniques to efficiently analyze spectral signatures of carbon nanotubes to detect biomarkers of the disease and to recognize the cancer itself.

Multi-tasking wearable continuously monitors glucose, alcohol, and lactate


Imagine being able to measure your blood sugar levels, know if you've had too much to drink, and track your muscle fatigue during a workout, all in one small device worn on your skin. Engineers at the UC San Diego have developed a prototype of such a wearable that can continuously monitor several health stats – glucose, alcohol, and lactate levels – simultaneously in real-time.

Life cycle assessment shows: useful life of tech-critical metals to be short


Worldwide, almost all technology-intensive industries depend on readily available metallic raw materials. Consequently, precise and reliable information is needed on how long these raw materials remain in the economic cycle. To obtain the necessary data, a research team from the universities of Bayreuth, Augsburg and Bordeaux has now developed a new modelling method.

More efficiency for optical quantum gates


Future quantum computers are expected not only to solve particularly tricky computing tasks, but also to be connected to a network for the secure exchange of data. In principle, quantum gates could be used for these purposes.

Quantum one-way street in topological insulator nanowires


An international group of scientists have demonstrated that nanowires can act like a quantum one-way street for electrons when made of material known as a topological insulator. The discovery opens the pathway for new technological applications of devices and demonstrates a significant step on the road to achieving qubits, which can robustly encode information for a quantum computer.

In balance: Quantum computing needs the right combination of order and disorder


Research conducted within the Cluster of Excellence "Matter and Light for Quantum Computing" (ML4Q) has analysed cutting-edge device structures of quantum computers to demonstrate that some of them are indeed operating dangerously close to a threshold of chaotic meltdown.

Wearable, inexpensive robotic sleeve for lymphedema treatment


Lymphedema often occurs in survivors of breast cancer, because they are at high risk for lymph node damage or removal during surgical procedures. The locations of these nodes often make fluid and proteins collect in the arm, so treatment consists of compression sleeves that seek to restore normal flow. However, current techniques are expensive and inconvenient.
