Scientists make tantalum oxide practical for high-density devices
Scientists at Rice University have created a solid-state memory technology that allows for high-density storage with a minimum incidence of computer errors.
Surface plasmons move at nearly the speed of light and travel farther than expected
Light waves trapped on a metal's surface, called surface plasmons, travel farther than expected, up to 250 microns from the source. While this distance is just one-hundredth of an inch, it is far enough to possibly be useful ...
Phagraphene, a relative of graphene, discovered
A group of scientists from Russia, the USA and China have predicted the existence of a new two-dimensional carbon material via computer generated simulation, a "patchwork" analogue of graphene called phagraphene. The results ...
Manipulating the rotational direction of artificial molecular motors using supramolecules
A research group jointly fabricated molecular motors on a metal substrate using supramolecules, and successfully reversed their rotation by rearranging bonding between molecules that constitute a supramolecule.
