Alloy engineering addresses long-standing problem of semiconductor defects
Laser-wielding physicists seize control of atoms' behavior
Physicists have wondered in recent years if they could control how atoms interact using light. Now they know that they can, by demonstrating games of quantum billiards with unusual new rules.
World's largest atom smashers produce world's smallest droplets
How small can a droplet shrink and remain a liquid?
Dark matter hiding in stars may cause observable oscillations
Spinning ring on a table found to behave more like a boomerang than a coin
ORNL microscopy finds evidence of high-temperature superconductivity in single layer
Electron microscopy at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory is pointing researchers closer to the development of ultra-thin materials that transfer electrons with no resistance at relatively high temperatures.
