Scientists designed and fabricated a remote forest fire detection and alarm system powered by nothing but the movement of the trees in the wind.
Researchers have developed a high-precision technology that enables them to carve nanometric patterns into two-dimensional materials.
There are physical limits to how powerful computers can become if they are to maintain their size. Molecular electronics can solve that problem, and now researchers are contributing to this field with a new, efficient conducting material, based on molecules.
Scientists have developed a new approach for generating layered, difficult-to-combine, heterostructured solids.
A new EU project focuses on quantum materials, whose properties can be modified significantly by elastic deformation.
Researchers have managed to manipulate and track the movement of individual magnetic vortices called skyrmions, which have been touted as strong candidates to act as information carriers in next-generation storage devices and as synapses for neuromorphic computing.
Researchers report that the twisted bilayer transition metal dichalcogenide WSe2 enables the realization of exotic correlated phenomena, including high-Tc superconductivity and correlated insulators, in a controlled manner and without the geometrical restriction found in twisted bilayer graphene.
Scientists have managed to drive a prototypical antiferromagnet into a new magnetic state using terahertz frequency light.
Traditional fluorescent dyes to examine bacteria viability are toxic and suffer poor photostability - but using the Vortex Fluidic Device has enabled the preparation of a new generation of aggregation-induced emission dye luminogens using graphene oxide.
Light interacts with itself to form self-sustaining waves in an artificial topological material.
Engineers have created a light-powered catalyst that can break the strong chemical bonds in fluorocarbons, a group of synthetic materials that includes persistent environmental pollutants.
'Janus' nanorods convert light to heat that can destroy pollutants.
Researchers report that a fabrication technique may offer a path toward mastering the often chaotic flow of heat carriers at the nanoscale in silicon and other semiconductors.
Researchers create first efficient 2D material photodetector for telecom wavelengths.
When hit with light, the film-thin materials come alive -- bending, rotating and even crawling on surfaces.
Researchers have created a Bose-Einstein condensate with record speed, creating the fascinating phase of matter in about 100 femtoseconds.
Electrons in chiral crystals, solid-state materials with definite handedness, can behave in unexpected ways. An interdisciplinary research team has realized now a theoretically predicted peculiar electronic state in a chiral compound, PtGa, from the class of topological materials.
The particles will be produced using 3D-bioprinting, enabling them to be released at specified intervals, instead of a continuous slow release.
Interactions between hollow silica nanocubes suspended in a solution can be adjusted by varying the concentration of polymer molecules added to the mixture.
The new study focuses on a production method, based around mechanical abrasion, where multilayer structures are formed through directly abrading different Van der Waals material powders directly on top of one another.
