May 26, 2015 — The thinnest possible linear thread that still retains a diamond-like structure was created by the extreme compression and decompression of the common chemical benzene. The threads may have ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Scientists have moved graphene -- the incredibly strong and conductive single-atom-thick sheet of carbon -- a significant step along the path from lab bench novelty to commercially viable material ... read more

May 15, 2015 — One of the barriers to using graphene at a commercial scale could be overcome using a new method. Graphene, a material stronger and stiffer than carbon fiber, has enormous commercial potential but ... read more

May 14, 2015 — New material is 1,000 times more conductive than commercially available materials currently on the ... read more

May 15, 2015 — A new porous material exhibits high electrical conductivity as a bulk material that is potentially tunable and has unusual temperature dependence, suggesting new fundamental ... read more

May 13, 2015 — A new material stays liquid more than 200 degrees F below its expected freezing point, but a light touch can cause it to form yellow crystals that glow under ultraviolet ... read more

Ion Pump Gives the Body Its Own Pain Alleviation

May 10, 2015 — A small ion pump in organic electronics is giving new hope to people suffering from severe nerve pain. Researchers are the first in the world with technology that can stop pain impulses in living, ... read more

E-Skin and Pocket-Sized Diagnostic Devices Give Patients the Power Back

May 12, 2015 — Wearable E-skin that can measure heart rate and blood pressure, and paper diagnostic machines the size of a credit card that can give instant readings on blood and saliva samples are two new ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Topological insulators are "strange" materials, insulators on the inside and conductors on the surface. They also have properties that make them excellent candidates for the development of ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Groundbreaking research has successfully created the world's first truly electronic textile, using the wonder material, ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Diabetics often have little feeling in their feet and don’t perceive the body’s pressure or temperature signals there. This can result in unnoticed wounds that then develop into abscesses. Many ... read more

Electronic Security Tag for Protecting Valuable Shipments

May 11, 2015 — An electronic security tag has been developed that can used to protect valuable shipments and enhance product safety in the future. By using a security tag equipped with sensors, the sender and the ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Researchers have succeeded in creating a new 'whispering gallery' effect for electrons in a sheet of graphene -- making it possible to precisely control a region that reflects electrons ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Scientists have discovered topologically protected 1-D electron conducting channels at the domain walls of bilayer graphene that should prove useful for ... read more

May 5, 2015 — A revolution is coming in flexible electronic technologies as cheaper, more flexible, organic transistors replace expensive, rigid, silicone-based semiconductors, but not enough is known about how ... read more

May 5, 2015 — Electronics is based on the manipulation of electrons and other charge carriers, but in addition to charge, electrons possess a property known as spin. When spin is manipulated with magnetic and ... read more

Defects in Atomically Thin Semiconductor Emit Single Photons

May 4, 2015 — Researchers have shown that defects on an atomically thin semiconductor can produce light-emitting quantum dots. The quantum dots serve as a source of single photons and could be useful for the ... read more

May 3, 2015 — Making thin films out of semiconducting materials is analogous to how ice grows on a windowpane: When the conditions are just right, the semiconductor grows in flat crystals that slowly fuse ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — If you want to manufacture single prototypes or small-scale production series, 3D-printed forms may be the way to ... read more

Apr. 28, 2015 — A new technique for visualizing the rapidly changing electronic structures of atomic-scale materials as they twist, tumble and traipse across the nanoworld is taking shape. Researchers have for the ... read more
