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

Team invents microscopic sonic screwdriver
A team of engineers have created tiny acoustic vortices and used them to grip and spin microscopic particles suspended in water.
Phys.org: General Physics News, Fri, 29 May 2015 03:33:39 GMT

Researchers prove magnetism can control heat, sound
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by a researcher group from The Ohio State University.

NIST seeks calibration methodologies for determining the accuracy of micro-flows
Many medical treatments both new and old involve extremely small doses of powerful drugs in liquid form – from scorpion venom for cancer research to opioid analgesics for pain control. Often, these substances are administered on the scale of a few tens of nanoliters (nL, billionths of a liter) at a time.

How researchers listen for gravitational waves
A century ago, Albert Einstein postulated the existence of gravitational waves in his General Theory of Relativity. But until now, these distortions of space-time have remained stubbornly hidden from direct observation. At the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Hanover, researchers are on the trail of this phenomenon with the GEO600 detector. At the heart of the installation is a laser.

Physicists precisely measure interaction between atoms and carbon surfaces
Physicists have conducted the most precise and controlled measurements yet of the interaction between the atoms and molecules that comprise air and the type of carbon surface used in battery electrodes and air filters -- key information for improving those technologies.
Physics News -- ScienceDaily, Fri, 29 May 2015 03:33:39 GMT

Magnetism can control heat, sound
Elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound -- known as acoustic phonons -- also have magnetic properties and can, therefore, be controlled by magnets, even for materials thought to be 'nonmagnetic,' such as semiconductors. This discovery 'adds a new dimension to our understanding of acoustic waves,' according to a landmark study.

Donuts, math, and superdense teleportation of quantum information
Quantum teleportation has been achieved by a number of research teams around the globe since it was first theorized in 1993, but current experimental methods require extensive resources and/or only work successfully a fraction of the time. Now, by taking advantage of the mathematical properties intrinsic to the shape of a donut -- or torus, in mathematical terminology -- a physicists have made great strides by realizing 'superdense teleportation.'

Do atoms going through a double slit ‘know’ if they are being observed?
Wheeler's "delayed choice" gedanken done with single helium atom
