Wasted green power tests China’s energy leadership

China's scramble to curb pollution has made it the world leader in renewable energy development, yet increasing amounts of that green power have gone unused as the country struggles to integrate wind and solar farms into an outdated and balkanized electricity network dominated by coal.

New magnetoresistance effect leads to four-state memory device

(Phys.org)—In 2015, scientists discovered a new magnetoresistance effect—that is, a new way in which magnetization affects a material's electric resistance—but hadn't yet found a promising application for the discovery, beyond the existing technologies. Now in a new paper, the same researchers have demonstrated that the effect can be used to design memories with four distinct stable magnetic states, allowing the memories to store four bits of information in a single magnetic structure.

Scientists find way to surgically strike out weeds that impede crop growth

By using a combination of fumigants, scientists believe they can surgically strike out some weeds that otherwise get in the way of vegetable growth. Researchers say this will help growers as they try to manage pests in areas where they cause the most trouble.
