Nanoscopic static electricity generates chiral patterns
In the tiny world of amino acids and proteins and in the helical shape of DNA, a biological phenomenon abounds.
Anti-flu proteins work as designed, researchers confirm
(Phys.org)—Understanding why proteins interact with certain specific molecules and not with the myriad others in their environment is a major goal of molecular biology. Now, in a series of recent papers, ...
Team calculates the role of buried layers in few-layer epitaxial graphene
A CNST-led collaboration with the University of Maryland and the University of Texas has computed how electrostatic interactions between electrons in different layers of few-layer graphene affect the properties ...
More efficient energy use could result from a direct experimental observation of atomic behavior inside nanoscale cages
Thermoelectric generators can make better use of the excess heat generated by machines by converting temperature differences directly back into electricity. Now, Masaki Takata from the RIKEN SPring-8 Center, ...
