Apr. 26, 2017 — Two physicists have offered a way to mathematically describe a particular physics phenomenon called a phase transition in a system out of equilibrium. Such phenomena are central in physics, and ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — High performing lithium-ion batteries are a key component of laptops, smart phones, and electric vehicles. Currently, the anodes, or negative charged side of lithium ion batteries, are generally made ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Photosynthesis requires a mechanism to produce large amounts of chemical energy without losing the oxidative power needed to break down water. A research team has clarified part of this mechanism, ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — For flexible electrodes, researchers are working with the process of electrospinning, a technique that produces ultra-fine fibers that are up to 100 times thinner than a human hair. These fibers are ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — The creation of new materials is often accompanied with powerful illumination. Scientists are designing an advanced bistatic laser monitor that enables observing high-speed processes hidden by ... read more

Apr. 11, 2017 — Radio waves, microwaves and even light itself are all made of electric and magnetic fields. The classical theory of electromagnetism was completed in the 1860s by James Clerk Maxwell. At the time, ... read more

Apr. 11, 2017 — Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a team has made a ... read more

New Class of Optoelectronic Materials Developed

Apr. 11, 2017 — A new class of semiconductor materials has been pioneered that might enhance the functionality of optoelectronic devices and solar panels -- perhaps even using one hundred times less material than ... read more

In-Car Cow Avoidance

Apr. 7, 2017 — Driverless cars are hitting the headlines across the globe but for the foreseeable future we will still have drivers. The pressure then is how might some of the safety features of driverless cars be ... read more

Apr. 7, 2017 — Printed transistors have now been fabricated consisting entirely of layered materials. The team’s findings have the potential to cheaply print a range of electronic devices from solar cells to LEDs ... read more

Apr. 6, 2017 — Researchers have fabricated printed transistors consisting entirely of 2-dimensional nanomaterials for the first time. This breakthrough could unlock the potential for applications such as food ... read more

Apr. 5, 2017 — Carbon nanotubes can be used to make very small electronic devices, but they are difficult to handle. Scientists have developed a method to select semiconducting nanotubes from a solution and make ... read more

Apr. 5, 2017 — Materials scientists have developed a model to predict the limits of friction behavior of metals based on materials properties -- how hard you can push on materials or how much current you can put ... read more

Apr. 4, 2017 — While memory devices are becoming progressively more flexible, their ease of fabrication and integration in low performance applications have been generally been treated as being of secondary ... read more

Apr. 4, 2017 — Researchers have created elastic, touch-sensitive fibers that can interface with electronic ... read more

Apr. 4, 2017 — Taking a cue from the Marvel Universe, researchers report that they have developed a self-healing polymeric material with an eye toward electronics and soft robotics that can repair themselves. The ... read more

Renewable Energy Needed to Drive Uptake of Electric Vehicles

Apr. 4, 2017 — Plugging into renewable energy sources outweighs the cost and short driving ranges for consumers intending to buy electric vehicles, according to a new study. In a new article, experts say that ... read more

Apr. 3, 2017 — Researchers have created a new 'spray-on' digital memory using only an aerosol jet printer and nanoparticle ink. The device, which is analogous to a 4-bit flash drive, is the first ... read more

Apr. 3, 2017 — Tiny 'black holes' on a silicon wafer make for a new type of photodetector that could move more data at lower cost around the world or across a ... read more
