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 unrivaled in terms of weight.
Scientists sought to form longer-lifetime response complexes in a hydrogel and use those longer responses to produce unique reactions in the hydrogel.
Researchers demonstrated novel ways to design and build materials for controlling light. The new materials have two layers of metasurfaces.
Physicists have 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. This would make data processing faster, more compact and energy efficient. The researchers confirmed their theory by running complex simulations.

Substantial increase in the energy conversion efficiency of hydrodynamic power generation via spin currents.
Researchers have cracked one of the secrets of tooth decay. The materials scientists are the first to identify a small number of impurity atoms in human enamel that may contribute to the material's strength but also make it more soluble. They also are the first to determine the spatial distribution of the impurities with atomic-scale resolution. The discovery could lead to a better understanding of human tooth decay as well as genetic conditions that affect enamel formation.
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.
The synthesis of silica particles, used in bioimaging and drug delivery, could become considerably cheaper and more efficient by adopting a new flow synthesis method which involves a spiral channel and simple Teflon pipe to promote the rapid mixing of precursor fluids.
Scientists create a theoretical carbon-based material that would be even harder than diamond. This work may have industrial applications for cutting and polishing in place of current synthetic diamond.
