Quantum effects in nanometer-scale metallic structures
Plasmonic devices combine the 'super speed' of optics with the 'super small' of microelectronics. These devices exhibit quantum effects and show promise as possible ultrafast circuit elements, but current ...
A new imaging approach for monitoring cell metabolism
Scientists at EPFL have used a new imaging technique to monitor how glucose, our main energy source, is used in the body. Their findings may have great implications for diseases like diabetes.
Atom-width graphene sensors could provide unprecedented insights into brain structure and function
Understanding the anatomical structure and function of the brain is a longstanding goal in neuroscience and a top priority of President Obama's brain initiative. Electrical monitoring and stimulation of neuronal ...
Water, water everywhere: Polarization dramatically affects H2O structure revealed through molecular dynamics simulation
Cheap hybrid outperforms rare metal as fuel-cell catalyst
(Phys.org) —Graphene quantum dots created at Rice University grab onto graphene platelets like barnacles attach themselves to the hull of a boat. But these dots enhance the properties of the mothership, ...
