Potential materials for future wearable electronics and other motion-powered, energy-harvesting devices.
New insight into the spin behavior in an exotic state of matter puts us closer to next-generation spintronic devices.
The nanoparticle targets only leukemic cells and therefore would reduce the severe adverse effects of current treatments. The receptor for this nanoparticle is expressed in 20 types of cancer and associated with a poor prognosis, so this drug could open a new therapeutic pathway for other tumors.
Researchers report their success of synthesizing urchin-like nickel nanoparticles by magneto-solvothermal method. Rotated by a magnetic field, the nanoparticles' mechanical force can destroy tumor cells and achieve the same effect as a scalpel.
In an effort to improve large touchscreens, LED light panels and window-mounted infrared solar cells, researchers have made plastic conductive while also making it more transparent.
Researchers have developed a unique photonic device that reduces the need for re-implants, paving the way for a breakthrough in medical implant technology.
Scientists explain a new process that maximizes photon conversion in 2D materials, which could innovate photonic-based applications.
New technique could lead to new microprocessors that defy Moore's Law.
Researchers have designed peptide nanoparticles that can each glow in a variety of colors, opening the door for many new biomedical applications.
Scientists have succeeded in producing the first graphene ribbons whose crystal lattice contains both periodic pores and a regular pattern of nitrogen atoms. The structure of this new material resembles a ladder, with each rung containing two atoms of nitrogen.
Researchers have developed a wood-based steam generator that, with the help of bacterial-produced nanomaterials, harnesses solar energy to purify water.
Researchers have found a way to detect nanostructures buried under many layers of opaque material, using very high frequency sound waves induced by light. Their findings are promising in view of applications in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, such as wafer alignment.
For many applications in electronics and energy technology, graphene must be combined with other materials: Since graphene is so thin, its properties drastically change when other materials are brought into direct contact with it.
Researchers enhance the accuracy of X-ray free-electron laser measurements closer to the diameter of typical atoms than previously possible.
Researchers develop a set of entirely novel knobs to control correlated electrons and demonstrate that superconductivity can exist without insulating phases in Magic Angle Twisted Bi-layer Graphene.
Scientists have developed a novel instrument that can make three kinds of atom-scale measurements simultaneously: It images single atoms. It maps atomic-scale hills and valleys on metal and insulating surfaces. And it records the flow of current across atom-thin materials subject to giant magnetic fields.
The smallest cell structures can now be imaged even better: The combination of two microscopy methods makes fluorescence imaging with molecular resolution possible for the first time.
Physics team observed extremely fast electronic changes in real time in a special material class.
Scientists have developed a new form of ptychography that uses complex algorithms to achieve faster, more efficient imaging with picometer (one-trillionth of a meter) precision that won?t damage samples so easily.
Researchers have invented an electrically focus-tunable, graphene-based ultrathin subpixel square lens device that demonstrates excellent focusing performance.
