    Israeli Startup Aims to Harness Excess Industrial Heat to Transform CO2, Water Into Fuel

    The Jerusalem Post reports that Rehovot-based firm NewCO2Fuels aims to harness extreme heat that is currently emitted – and wasted – by factories, and use it to drive an innovative fuel production process that was developed by Weizmann's Prof. Jacob Karni. This ""recycled"" heat will replace solar in a method for producing synthetic gas.

    New Diagnostic Test Distinguishes Bacterial from Viral Infections

    Israeli startup MeMed is receiving funding and accolades for a test that determines whether an infection is bacterial or viral, thus helping prevent antibiotic overuse. As Iton Gadal reports, the test is already being used by hospitals in the EU, Switzerland, and Israel. MeMed was founded by Eran Eden, who received a doctorate from Weizmann.

    Camera “Sees” Through Skin, Around Corners

    Weizmann researchers have invented a camera that can see through nearly opaque surfaces such as skin or frosted glass — and even around corners. While it's still in the early stages, the technology points the way to noninvasive cancer diagnostics.

    One Atom + Two Photons = Quantum Computing Switch

    Dr. Barak Dayan and the quantum optics group at Weizmann have made a quantum computing breakthrough, recently published in Science. As IEEE Spectrum reports, Dr. Dayan can use a single atom to switch the direction of a single photon, which ""could pave the way toward quantum computers much more powerful than today's machines.""
