May 18, 2015 — A new metal oxide was discovered whose atomic structure includes highly ordered arrays of missing oxygen atoms. This structure allows oxygen ions to move through the material quickly and easily at ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Only recently has nanotechnology made it possible to reach the scale required to test the theoretical model known as the Tomonaga-Luttinger theory. Now, a team of researchers has succeeded in ... read more

Revealing Breast Cancer Using Nanoscale Polymers

May 14, 2015 — A biocompatible polymer selectively targets and lights up cancer tumors for a noninvasive imaging system, investigators report. Generating photoacoustic signals requires an ultrafast laser pulse to ... read more

May 13, 2015 — Lignocellulosic biomass can be successfully converted into pure BTX chemicals: benzene, toluene and xylene, research demonstrates. The aim of this research is to enable the use of wood-based ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Scientists have now uncovered new velocity and temperature-dependent properties of rubber friction on asphalt -- bolstering the idea that an important component of friction originates when chains of ... 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 — Researchers have invented a technique called “CLAIRE” that extends the incredible resolution of electron microscopy to the non-invasive nanoscale imaging of soft matter, including biomolecules, ... read more

Predicting Magnetic Behavior in Copper Oxide Superconductors

May 14, 2015 — Enabled by high-performance computing, the magnetic couplings in model systems for copper-containing cuprate superconductors were accurately calculated for the first ... read more

May 14, 2015 — New technique makes nanomaterial self-assembly 1,000 times faster and could be used for industrial-scale solar panels and ... read more

May 13, 2015 — Scientists find gold electrodes can serve as catalysts to make black silicon for solar cells. The discovery could streamline the manufacturing ... read more

May 13, 2015 — Physicists have built a microscope that is able to see up to 1,000 individual fermionic atoms. The researchers devised a laser-based technique to trap and freeze fermions in place, and image the ... read more

May 13, 2015 — Inspired by the way iridescent bird feathers play with light, scientists have created thin films of material in a wide range of pure colors -- from red to green -- with hues determined by physical ... 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

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

First Theoretical Proof: Measurement of a Single Nuclear Spin in Biological Samples

May 11, 2015 — Physicists were able to show that the nuclear spins of single molecules can be detected with the help of magnetic particles at room temperature. The researchers describe a novel experimental setup ... read more

May 11, 2015 — A method to separate two rare earth elements -- europium and yttrium -- with UV light instead of with traditional solvents has been revealed by researchers. Their findings offer new opportunities for ... read more

Space Lab to Elucidate How Liquid Cocktails Mix

May 11, 2015 — Zero-gravity experiments can tell us a great deal about the effects of temperature change on the concentrations of three different liquids that are mixed together. What does space experimentation ... read more

May 8, 2015 — A convenient procedure to visualize defects on graphene layers by mapping the surface of carbon materials with an appropriate contrast agent was introduced by a team of ... read more

Faster, More Durable Water Filters: Plugging Up Leaky Graphene

May 7, 2015 — For faster, longer-lasting water filters, some scientists are looking to graphene --thin, strong sheets of carbon -- to serve as ultrathin membranes, filtering out contaminants to quickly purify high ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Technological limitations have made studying friction on the atomic scale difficult, but researchers have now made advances in that quest on two fronts. By speeding up a real atomic force microscope ... read more
