Researchers from the MIT Media Lab developed a new technique that makes image acquisition using compressed sensing 50 times as efficient. In the case of the single-pixel camera, it could get the number of exposures down from thousands to dozens. Examples of this compressive ultrafast imaging technique are show on the bottom rows.

Designed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the device lets scientists add designer molecules to an extremely well-defined electrochemical cell. They can then characterize the electrode-electrolyte interface while the cell is charged and discharged at technologically relevant conditions.

Sandia National Laboratories researchers Michael Chandross, left, and Nicolas Argibay show a computer simulation and an ultrahigh vacuum tribometer used in friction and wear testing, which are among the tools they use in a collaborative effort that developed a model to predict the friction behavior of metals. The goal is to understand friction and wear
