A new multilayer-based grating for hard X-ray grating interferometry
(Phys.org) —A new kind of x-ray multilayer grating that could open a pathway for high-sensitivity, hard x-ray phase contrast full-field imaging of large samples has been developed by researchers at the ...
Building 3-D fractals on a nanoscale: Structure repeats itself from micro to nano
It all starts with a single octahedron structure, then after four iterations there are already 625 of them. Each iteration creates a new octahedron at each vertex. The result is a fascinating 3D fractal construction ...
Building 3-D fractals on a nano scale
It starts with one 3D structure with eight planes, an octahedron. This repeats itself to smaller octahedra: 625 after just four steps. At every corner of a new octahedron, a successive octahedron is formed. ...
A Cupid made of carbon nanotubules: World's tiniest Valentine
(Phys.org)—Got a "little crush" on someone this Valentine's Day? Maybe you've been hit by a little arrow belonging to this cupid made from carbon nanotubes by Brigham Young University physics students.
Electronics like it cold, and 30 K cryocooler delivers
Miniaturized sensors hold up under pressure
Applications as diverse as oil-well drilling and robot-driven surgery are driving demand for improved micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) pressure sensors. As they are made smaller, however, simultaneously ...
New LED packaging technology improves performance
In new mass-production technique, robotic insects spring to life
(PhysOrg.com) -- A new technique inspired by elegant pop-up books and origami will soon allow clones of robotic insects to be mass-produced by the sheet.
Terminator-style info-vision takes step towards reality
The streaming of real-time information across your field of vision is a step closer to reality with the development of a prototype contact lens that could potentially provide the wearer with hands-free information ...
