Today's physics/chemistry headlines from the sources selected by our team:

New microscope collects dynamic images of the molecules that animate life
Over the last decade, powerful new microscopes have dramatically sharpened biologists' focus on the molecules that animate and propel life. Now, a new imaging platform developed by Eric Betzig and colleagues at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus offers another leap forward for light microscopy. The new technology collects high-resolution images rapidly and minimizes damage to cells, meaning it can image the three-dimensional activity of molecules, cells, and embryos in fine detail over longer periods than was previously possible.

Inauguration of second neutrino detector for Double Chooz experiment
Work on a second neutrino detector has just been completed by CNRS and CEA near the Chooz nuclear power plant in northeastern France. Its measurements will supplement those of the first detector installed five years ago to study, as part of the Double Chooz experiment, the characteristics of neutrinos, highly elusive elementary particles produced in abundance in the sun and nuclear reactors. Built 400 meters from the reactor core of the nuclear power plant, the second detector was inaugurated on September 25, 2014 in the presence of representatives of CNRS, CEA and local authorities, who contributed to the effort.

Microscopic "walkers" find their way across cell surfaces
Nature has developed a wide variety of methods for guiding particular cells, enzymes, and molecules to specific structures inside the body: White blood cells can find their way to the site of an infection, while scar-forming cells migrate to the site of a wound. But finding ways of guiding artificial materials within the body has proven more difficult.

Superstring theorist at University of Florida wins 2015 Heineman Prize
The American Physical Society (APS) and the American Institute of Physics (AIP) announced today, on behalf of the Heineman Foundation for Research, Educational, Charitable, and Scientific Purposes, that theoretical physicist Pierre Ramond, director of the Institute for Fundamental Theory at the University of Florida, has won the 2015 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics—one of the highest honors for scientific investigators in that field.

Li-ion batteries contain toxic halogens, but environmentally friendly alternatives exist
Physics researchers have discovered that most of the electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries -- commonly found in consumer electronic devices -- are superhalogens, and that the vast majority of these electrolytes contain toxic halogens.
