How ionic: Scaffolding is in charge of calcium carbonate crystals
Nature packs away carbon in chalk, shells and rocks made by marine organisms that crystallize calcium carbonate. Now, research suggests that the soft, organic scaffolds in which such crystals form guide crystallization ...
Atom-thick CCD could capture images: Scientists develop two-dimensional, light-sensitive material
An atomically thin material developed at Rice University may lead to the thinnest-ever imaging platform.
Attosecond laser provides first 'movie' of fast electrons jumping band-gap of semiconductor
The entire semiconductor industry, not to mention Silicon Valley, is built on the propensity of electrons in silicon to get kicked out of their atomic shells and become free. These mobile electrons are routed ...
Research team advances understanding of atomically thin crystal growth
(Phys.org) —UT's College of Engineering has made recent headlines for discoveries that, while atomically small, could impact our modern world.
HaptoMime offers mid-air interaction system (w/ Video)
LCD technology maintains 3D images it displays without drawing power
At first glance, the static, greyscale display created by a group of researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China might not catch the eye of a thoughtful consumer in a market ...
Antifreeze proteins in Antarctic fishes prevent freezing... and melting
Antarctic fishes that manufacture their own "antifreeze" proteins to survive in the icy Southern Ocean also suffer an unfortunate side effect, researchers report: The protein-bound ice crystals that accumulate ...
