Unexpected finding shows nanoparticles keep their internal crystal structure while flexing like droplets
A surprising phenomenon has been found in metal nanoparticles: They appear, from the outside, to be liquid droplets, wobbling and readily changing shape, while their interiors retain a perfectly stable crystal ...
A cold-atom ammeter: Superfluid current is only as strong as its weak link
(Phys.org) —In certain exotic situations, a collection of atoms can transition to a superfluid state, flouting the normal rules of liquid behavior. Unlike a normal, viscous fluid, the atoms in a superfluid ...

Squink personal factory aims to make circuit prototyping easy
Project at IBM looks to carbon nanotube future
Superconducting-silicon qubits: Using a bottom-up approach to make hybrid quantum devices
Theorists propose a way to make superconducting quantum devices such as Josephson junctions and qubits, atom-by-atom, inside a silicon crystal. Such systems could combine the most promising aspects of silicon ...
Historic EDSAC circuit diagrams rescued from pile for trash
Move over, silicon, there's a new circuit in town
(Phys.org) —When it comes to electronics, silicon will now have to share the spotlight. In a paper recently published in Nature Communications, researchers from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering descri ...
A faster path to optical circuits
Just as electronic circuits work with electrical charges, optical circuits process pulses of light, which gives them a distinct advantage in terms of speed. Optical technologies are therefore the object of intense research, ...
