Understanding graphene's electrical properties on an atomic level
(Phys.org) —Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is ...
Physicists investigate onset of effective mass
Experiment investigates how classical physics may emerge from quantum physics
Engineers envision an electronic switch just three atoms thick
Do not fold, spindle or mutilate. Those instructions were once printed on punch cards that fed data to mainframe computers. Today's smart phones process more data, but they still weren't built for being shoved ...
Friction almost vanishes in microscale graphite
Researchers glimpse the inside of a photonic crystal
Chemists fabricate 'impossible' material
Express yourself: Scientists use genetic algorithm to design self-assembling ssDNA-grafted particles
Graphene enhances many materials, but leaves them wettable
Graphene is the thinnest material known to science. The nanomaterial is so thin, in fact, water often doesn't even know it's there.
Is it real? Physicists propose method to determine if the universe is a simulation
Crystal cantilever lifts objects 600 times its own weight (w/ Video)
Scientists capture ultrafast snapshots of light-driven superconductivity
A new study pins down a major factor behind the appearance of superconductivity—the ability to conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency—in a promising copper-oxide material.
JILA strontium atomic clock sets new records in both precision and stability
Heralding a new age of terrific timekeeping, a research group led by a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) physicist has unveiled an experimental strontium atomic clock that has set new ...
