A billion holes can make a battery
Researchers at the University of Maryland have invented a single tiny structure that includes all the components of a battery that they say could bring about the ultimate miniaturization of energy storage ...
Microscopy, quantum-style: Atomic stacks imaged in real space
Stretchable graphene transistors overcome limitations of other materials
Light propagation in solar cells made visible
How can light which has been captured in a solar cell be examined in experiments? Jülich scientists have succeeded in looking directly at light propagation within a solar cell by using a trick. The photovoltaics ...
Nanowire lens can reconfigure its imaging properties
Physicists show unlimited heat conduction in graphene
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz and the National University of Singapore have attested that the thermal conductivity of graphene diverges with the size of the ...

Hot electrons do the impossible in catalytic chemistry
Single molecule performs multiple logic operations simultaneously
New 2-D quantum materials for nanoelectronics
Researchers at MIT say they have carried out a theoretical analysis showing that a family of two-dimensional materials exhibits exotic quantum properties that may enable a new type of nanoscale electronics.
Water, water everywhere: Polarization dramatically affects H2O structure revealed through molecular dynamics simulation
Pyroelectric nanogenerator charges Li-ion battery with harvested energy
Atomic 'mismatch' creates nano 'dumbbells'
Like snowflakes, nanoparticles come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The geometry of a nanoparticle is often as influential as its chemical makeup in determining how it behaves, from its catalytic properties ...
