NIST demonstrates quantum entanglement of ions using microwaves.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
August 22, 2011 Physicists at NIST have, for the first time, linked quantum properties of 2 separated ions by manipulating them with microwaves instead of laser beams. The feat raises the possibility of replacing complex, room-sized quantum computing "laser parks" with miniaturized, commercial microwave technology similar to that used in smart phones. Use of microwaves reduces errors introduced by instabilities in laser beam pointing and power as well as laser-induced spontaneous emissions by ions.
Carbon Nanotube Reliability is questioned by NIST research.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
August 22, 2011 While carbon nanotubes can theoretically carry 1,000 times more electric current than metal conductor of same size, recent tests at NIST suggest device reliability as a major issue. Specifically, results show nanotubes can sustain extremely high current densities for several hours but slowly degrade under constant current and fail when currents rise above certain threshold. Failures were also identified in carbon nanotube networks, where electrons physically hop from tube to tube.

NIST's Gentle Cell Capture Method could aid medical research.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
August 19, 2011 A research team at NIST has come up with a potential solution to a 2-pronged problem in medical research: how to capture cells on a particular spot on a surface using electric fields and keep them alive long enough to run experiments on them. Their method, which involves innovations upon conventional cell-capture techniques, has already proved effective in creating arrays of human liver cells and mouse pluripotent cells, which, similar to stem cells, can develop into more than one cell type.
