Clearing a path for electrons in polymers: Closing in on the speed limits
Researchers from the University of Cambridge have identified a class of low-cost, easily-processed semiconducting polymers which, despite their seemingly disorganised internal structure, can transport electrons ...
See-through, one-atom-thick, carbon electrodes powerful tool to study brain disorders
Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine and School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have used graphene—a two-dimensional form of carbon ...
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 ...
