X-Ray Laser Glimpses How Electrons Dance With Atomic Nuclei in Materials

Sep. 22, 2016 — The coupling between electrons and phonons determines how efficiently solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. It also plays key roles in superconductors that transfer electricity without ... read more

Sep. 21, 2016 — Scientists noticed that magnetic skyrmions – small electrically uncharged circular structures with a spiraling magnetic pattern – do get deflected by an applied current, much like a curveball ... read more

Sep. 21, 2016 — Scientists have known for a long time that an atom or molecule can also be in two different states at once. Now researchers have exploited this Schroedinger’s Cat behavior to create X-ray movies of ... read more

Sep. 21, 2016 — Scientists have successfully paired ferroelectric and ferrimagnetic materials so that their alignment can be controlled with a small electric field at near room temperatures, an achievement that ... read more

Sep. 21, 2016 — Researchers have put metal-oxides and organic magnets together, suggesting that their work has applications for ... read more

Sep. 21, 2016 — With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 ... read more

Sep. 20, 2016 — New light has been shed on the ways in which protons and neutrons can bind and even undergo a quantum phase transition. This work has implications for understanding the connections between nuclear ... read more

Scientists Demonstrate a Novel Physical Cryptographic Technique That May Have Applicability to Future Nuclear Disarmament Agreements

Sep. 20, 2016 — A new article describes successful demonstration of cryptographic technique that may have applicability to future nuclear disarmament ... read more

Sep. 20, 2016 — When it comes to low-frequency sound waves, traditional sound-absorbing materials tend to be undesirably bulky, heavy or thick. Now, researchers have designed subwavelength absorbers specifically for ... read more

Sep. 20, 2016 — A high-frequency version of a device known as an acoustic resonator has now been developed that could advance the field of quantum computing and information processing, say ... read more

Sep. 20, 2016 — Light-emitting, four-armed nanocrystals could someday form the basis of an early warning system in structural materials by revealing microscopic cracks that portend failure, thanks to recent research ... read more

Sep. 19, 2016 — The quest to know the mysterious recipe for high-temperature superconductivity, which could enable revolutionary advances in technologies that make or use electricity, just took a big leap forward ... read more

Diamond Proves Useful Material for Growing Graphene

Sep. 19, 2016 — A new method has been developed to grow graphene that contains relatively few impurities, and costs less to make, in a shorter time and at lower temperatures compared to the processes widely used to ... read more

Direct Observation of Graphene Decoupling on Cu(111)

Sep. 19, 2016 — A recent quantum mechanical study of graphene has elucidated the intercalation mechanism and pathways for graphene decoupling from the copper ... read more

Deep Insight Into Interfaces

Sep. 16, 2016 — Interfaces between different materials and their properties are of key importance for modern technology. Physicists have developed a new method, which allows them to have an extremely precise glance ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — If you bottle up a gas and try to image its atoms using today's most powerful microscopes, you will see little more than a shadowy blur. Atoms zip around at lightning speeds and are difficult to ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Researchers have levitated a tiny nanodiamond particle with a laser in a vacuum chamber, using the technique for the first time to detect and measure its "torsional vibration," an advance ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Materials scientists have developed a new strategy for crafting one-dimensional nanorods from a wide range of precursor materials. Based on a cellulose backbone, the system relies on the growth of ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Researchers have observed quantum effects in electrons by squeezing them into one-dimensional 'quantum wires' and observing the interactions between them. The results could be used to aid ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Researchers are giving new meaning to the phrase “turning rust into gold”—and making the use of gold in research settings and industrial applications far more ... read more
