Infrared vision lets researchers see through—and into—multiple layers of graphene
(Phys.org) —It's not X-ray vision, but you could call it infrared vision.
Surfing on acoustic waves (w/ Video)
(Phys.org) —ETH researchers are able to make objects such as particles and liquid droplets fly in mid-air by letting them ride on acoustic waves. For the first time, they have been able to also control ...
Scientists discover new family of quasicrystals
(Phys.org) —Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered a new family of rare-earth quasicrystals using an algorithm they developed to help pinpoint them. Quasicrystalline ...
Artificially-engineered material pushes the bounds of superconductivity
A multi-university team of researchers has artificially engineered a unique multilayer material that could lead to breakthroughs in both superconductivity research and in real-world applications.

Physicists find new order in quantum electronic material
Two Rutgers physics professors have proposed an explanation for a new type of order, or symmetry, in an exotic material made with uranium – a theory that may one day lead to enhanced computer displays and data storage systems ...
The first controllable atom superconducting quantum interference device
(Phys.org)—PFC supported scientists at JQI have created the first controllable atomic circuit that functions analogously to a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) and allows operators to ...
Interfaces are key in metal oxide superlattices
(Phys.org)—Materials called transition metal oxides have physicists intrigued by their potentially useful properties—from magnetoresistance (the reason a hard drive can write memory) to superconductivity.
Every atom counts in graphene formation
(Phys.org)—Like tiny ships finding port in a storm, carbon atoms dock with the greater island of graphene in a predictable manner. But until recent research by scientists at Rice University, nobody had ...
