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

Universe may face a darker future
New research offers a novel insight into the nature of dark matter and dark energy and what the future of our Universe might be.

Biology meets geometry: Describing geometry of common cellular structure
Architecture imitates life, at least when it comes to those spiral ramps in multistory parking garages. Stacked and connecting parallel levels, the ramps are replications of helical structures found in a ubiquitous membrane structure in the cells of the body.

High-intensity sound waves may aid regenerative medicine
Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a way to use sound to create cellular scaffolding for tissue engineering, a unique approach that could help overcome one of regenerative medicine's significant obstacles. The researchers will present their technique at the 168th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), held October 27-31, 2014, at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown Hotel.

World's first photonic pressure sensor outshines traditional mercury standard
For almost 400 years, mercury gauges have prevailed as the most accurate way to measure pressure. Now, within weeks of seeing "first light," a novel pressure-sensing device has surpassed the performance of the best mercury-based techniques in resolution, speed, and range at a fraction of the size. The new instrument, called a fixed-length optical cavity (FLOC), works by detecting subtle changes in the wavelength of light passing through a cavity filled with nitrogen gas.

Lord of the microrings
Researchers report a significant breakthrough in laser technology with the development of a unique microring laser cavity that can produce single-mode lasing on demand. This advance holds ramifications for a wide range of optoelectronic applications including metrology and interferometry, data storage and communications, and high-resolution spectroscopy.

Scientists propose existence and interaction of parallel worlds: Many Interacting Worlds theory challenges foundations of quantum science
Academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory on parallel universes. Scientists now propose that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. They show that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about quantum mechanics.

Physicists pave the way for quantum interfaces
Researchers have controlled interplay of light and matter at the level of individual photons emitted by rubidium.

Google's next search tool is a pill that spreads through your blood and diagnoses cancer
We usually associate taking medicine with recovering from an illness, but in the future swallowing a pill could be the first step to diagnosing diseases from cancer to heart problems.
