Probes inject positive and negative charges in the light emitting device, which is transparent under the campanile outline, producing bright light

Atomically-thin light emitting device opens the possibility for ‘invisible’ displays

UC Berkeley engineers have built a bright-light emitting device that is millimeters wide and fully transparent when turned off. The light emitting material in...
Pyrene molecules, which are four-ring, 16-carbon polycyclic hydrocarbons, are likely formed around giant stars. This artist's rendering shows the molecules in an asteroid belt, with carbon atoms shown in black and hydrogen atoms in white. Scientists have recreated the chemical steps for making pyrene in space.

How to make space molecules?

Complex carbon-based particles found in meteorites have for some time been a problem for Earth-bound scientists. Thus scientists are very keen to know how...
Areas of the brain that get input from the eyes can be hijacked to control something outside the brain, such as a computer that generates a tone. Yellow arrows represent feedback between the rat’s visual cortex and striatum, which is key to learning new tasks. Ryan Neely image.

Retraining neurons to take action

Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley along with Columbia University and the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown in Lisbon, Portugal have demonstrated the astounding...
Grace O'Connell, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, heads the project to develop a systematic way to predict which patients are most vulnerable to secondary fractures or disc degeneration following spinal fusion

Mechanical engineering to help back surgery

Almost half million Americans went for back surgery treat the impacts of circle degeneration, and others experience less basic surgical medicines. A shockingly high level of patients,...
