Water-soluble silicon leads to dissolvable electronics
Simplicity will out: Novel experiment-based expression explains behavior of unconventional superconductors
Simulating superconducting materials with ultracold atoms (w/ Video)
Using ultracold atoms as a stand-in for electrons, a Rice University-based team of physicists has simulated superconducting materials and made headway on a problem that's vexed physicists for nearly three ...
Researchers build atomically thin gas and chemical sensors
The relatively recent discovery of graphene, a two-dimensional layered material with unusual and attractive electronic, optical and thermal properties, led scientists to search for other atomically thin materials ...
Silver-glass sandwich structure acts as inexpensive color filter
The engineering world just became even more colorful.
Exotic states materialize with supercomputers
Scientists used supercomputers to find a new class of materials that possess an exotic state of matter known as the quantum spin Hall effect. The researchers published their results in the journal Science in Dec ...
Team makes stride in explaining 30-year-old 'hidden order' physics mystery
A new explanation for a type of order, or symmetry, in an exotic material made with uranium may lead to enhanced computer displays and data storage systems, and more powerful superconducting magnets for medical ...
Scientists have taken a big step toward the rational design of catalysts
Most of our food, medicine, fuel, plastics and synthetic fibers wouldn't exist without catalysts, materials that open favorable pathways for chemical reactions to run forth. And yet chemists don't fully understand ...
