Apr. 23, 2015 — The power of invisibility has long fascinated man and inspired the works of many great authors and philosophers. A team of neuroscientists now reports a perceptual illusion of having an invisible ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Metals are compounds that are capable of conducting the flow of electrons that make up an electric current. Other materials, called insulators, are not capable of conducting an electric current. At ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — As computers continue to shrink -- moving from desks and laps to hands and wrists -- memory has to become smaller, stable and more energy conscious. A group of researchers is trying to do just that ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — In the quantum world of light, being distinguishable means staying lonely. Only those photons that are indistinguishable can wind up in a pair, through what is called Hong-Ou-Mandel interference. ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Chemists have created a device that generates and detects terahertz waves over a wide spectral range with extreme precision, allowing it to be used as an unparalleled tool for measuring terahertz ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Engineers have discovered a method to increase the amount of electric charge that can be stored in graphene, a two-dimensional form of carbon. The research may provide a better understanding of how ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Researchers have unveiled an important step in the conversion of light into storable energy: They have studied the formation of so-called polarons in zinc oxide. The pseudoparticles travel through ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Combining state-of-the-art realistic atomistic modelling and experiments, the paper describes how thermal conductivity of ultrathin silicon membranes is controlled to large extent by the structure ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Physicists have developed a new tabletop particle detector that is able to identify single electrons in a radioactive ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — In another advance at the far frontiers of timekeeping , the latest modification of a record-setting strontium atomic clock has achieved precision and stability levels that now mean the clock would ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A stable bulk material shows the same physics found in graphene, which illuminated the interactions of electron’s orbital motion and its intrinsic magnetic orientation. The new material will be a ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A new semiconducting material that is only three atomic layers thick exhibits electronic properties beyond traditional semiconductors. Two nano-engineered configurations of the material have shown an ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — In a move that could improve the energy storage of everything from portable electronics to electric microgrids, researchers have developed a novel X-ray imaging technique to visualize and study the ... read more
