Apr. 23, 2015 — Scientists have created an electronic device so accurate that it can detect the charge of a single electron in less than one microsecond. It has been dubbed the 'gate sensor' and could be ... 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 — 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 — As a strategy to decrease road accidents caused under the influence of alcohol, a group of young students has developed an automotive safety system that detects the alcohol blood level of a potential ... 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 — In seeking to develop the next generation of micro-electronic transistors, researchers have long sought to find the next best thing to replace silicon. To this end, a wealth of recent research into ... 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

Theoretical Framework for Graphene Physics Established

Apr. 20, 2015 — A team of researchers has established a theoretical framework to understand the elastic and electronic properties of graphene. Graphene, a single-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — Human emotion can be transferred by technology that stimulates different parts of the hand without making physical contact with your body, a study has shown. For example, short, sharp bursts of air ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — Electric current flows without any resistance in a superconducting state thanks to a surprising redistribution of bonding electrons and the associated electronic and atomic behavior after ... read more
