Researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range ? and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
Physicists developed a simple concept that could improve significantly magnetic-based data processing. Using ultrashort electric pulses in the terahertz range, data can be written, read and erased very quickly.
Substantial increase in the energy conversion efficiency of hydrodynamic power generation via spin currents.
Researchers coupled a laser beam to a soap membrane, which contains random variations in membrane thickness. They discovered that when light propagates within the soap film, rather than being scattered, the light forms elongated branches, creating the branched flow phenomenon for light.
Light microscopes cannot discern how electrons are distributed among atoms in solids. A new type of a light microscope, the Picoscope, that allows overcoming this limitation.
Diamond nanocrystals could be used as an incredibly sensitive and small gravitational detector capable of measuring gravitational waves.
Scientists report a critical advancement in the field of ultralow power computation using magnetic waves.
Graphene substrates can be reused repeatedly for photocathodes that emit high-brightness electron beams in electron microscopes and accelerators.
Materials scientists have synthesized a new type of perovskite that goes against conventional thinking about how such structures behave at extreme pressures such as those that exist deep in the Earth.
Biomacromolecules incorporated into tailored metal-organic frameworks using peptide modulators are well shielded but highly active thanks to carefully tuned nanoarchitecture.
Scientists have been able to map the synaptonemal complex three-dimensionally with a resolution of 20 to 30 nanometres.
Liquid droplets formed from DNA display a peculiar response to enzymes.
Functional silica beads for biomedical imaging, drug delivery and other important applications could be made using an easy new flow synthesis method.
Scientists are developing 'synthetic trees' that work like their natural counterparts to serve in specific applications. In an important step, scientists fabricated synthetic leaves using nanoporous disks.
By connecting electromagnetic waves and magnetism to create a system made of magnon polaritons, scientists demonstrated the existence of an 'exceptional surface' for the first time.
Researchers established a new fabrication process based on a non-pyrophoric zinc precursor that can be processed at temperatures low enough to allow plastics to be coated.
Scientists use computer calculations to propose a new way to rearrange the carbon atoms in a diamond to make it even harder, which may be useful in industrial applications that rely on synthetic cutting diamonds .
It sounds like science fiction - but lasers beating to the rhythm of a live heart is exactly what researchers have developed to improve the understanding of heart failure and to help develop more effective treatments.
Healing broken bones could get easier with a device that provides both a scaffold for the bone to grow on and electrical stimulation to urge it forward.
Scientists have figured out a non-invasive way to measure the thickness of single-walled carbon nanotube films, which may find applications in a wide variety of fields from solar energy to smart textiles.
