Fabricating inexpensive, high-temp SQUIDs: Discovery paves way for new kinds of superconducting electronics
Physicists at UC San Diego have developed a new way to control the transport of electrical currents through high-temperature superconductors—materials discovered nearly 30 years ago that lose all resistance to electricity ...
Picking things up and putting them down is a mainstay of any kind of manufacturing, but fingers, human or robotic, are not always best for the task at hand.
Scientists develop a simulation model to take the guesswork out of calculating the roughness of a sphere
The scientific community uses spheres for all sorts of things—artificial limbs, cars, molecular chemistry—but there's always a little uncertainty when this geometric shape is introduced into an experiment. While spheres ...
A team of scientists at Virginia Commonwealth University has synthesized a powerful new magnetic material that could reduce the dependence of the United States and other nations on rare earth elements produced by China.
Washington State University researchers have discovered how to stretch metal films used in flexible electronics to twice their size without breaking.
