Second natural quasicrystal found in 4.5-billion-year-old meteorite
A team from Princeton University and the University of Florence in Italy has discovered a quasicrystal—so named because of its unorthodox arrangement of atoms—in a 4.5-billion-year-old meteorite from ...
Study proposes new way to measure superconducting fluctuations
A study published last month by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory provides theoretical evidence for a new effect that may lead to a way of measuring the exact temperature ...
New research provides a general formula for understanding how layered materials form different surface patterns
The process of wrinkle formation is familiar to anyone who has ever sat in a bathtub a little too long. But exactly why layered materials sometimes form one kind of wrinkly pattern or another—or even other ...
