Physicists create first-ever mechanical device that measures the mass of a single molecule
A team led by scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have made the first-ever mechanical device that can measure the mass of individual molecules one at a time.
New material could speed up underwater communications by orders of magnitude
(Phys.org) —University of California, San Diego electrical engineering professor Zhaowei Liu and colleagues have taken the first steps in a project to develop fast-blinking LED systems for underwater optical ...
Scientists demonstrate more efficient way to connect nanoparticles for single-electron devices
Engineer designs self-powered nanoscale devices that never need new batteries
(Phys.org)—It's relatively simple to build a device capable of detecting wireless signals if you don't mind making one that consumes lots of power. It's not so easy to design energy-efficient devices that ...
Scientists image the charge distribution within a single molecule for the first time
(PhysOrg.com) -- IBM scientists were able to measure for the first time how charge is distributed within a single molecule. This achievement will enable fundamental scientific insights into single-molecule ...
Research show mechanism behind wear at the atomic scale
(Phys.org)—Wear is a fact of life. As surfaces rub against one another, they break down and lose their original shape. With less material to start with and functionality that often depends critically on ...
'Super-resolution' microscope possible for nanostructures
(Phys.org) —Researchers have found a way to see synthetic nanostructures and molecules using a new type of super-resolution optical microscopy that does not require fluorescent dyes, representing a practical ...
