Gold is shown to aid laser trapping of biomolecules.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
June 19, 2009 JILA, a joint institute of NIST and the University of Colorado at Boulder, has reported the successful use of gold in optical-trapping experiments. This could lead to an increase in numbers of single molecules studied in certain assays, from roughly five to 50 per day, according to group leader Tom Perkins of NIST. In turn, the ability to carry out more experiments with greater precision will lead to insights concerning diversity in seemingly identical molecules.
NIST Researchers develop test of toxin strength.NIST Researchers develop test of toxin strength.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
June 19, 2009 A new NIST assay, using a glow or no glow technique, may help the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) defend the nation against biological weapons that could be used in a terrorist attack. As part of its efforts to address this threat, DHS is working with NIST to create a standardized ricin sample with a known potency in order to check the accuracy of detection equipment and, should an attack occur, confirm the success of decontamination procedures.

Strain at Grain Boundaries suppresses superconductivity.Strain at Grain Boundaries suppresses superconductivity.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
June 19, 2009 According to NIST researchers, reduction in mechanical strain at boundaries of crystal grains can improve performance of high-temperature superconductors. Although it is known that dislocations cause part of grain boundary cross-section to become non-superconducting, effect of strain which extends from dislocations into remaining superconducting bridges was previously unknown. New understanding could advance development of materials for power transmission and power grid reliability applications.
