New theoretical physics research shows that swirling particles known as skyrmions, which have been found in magnetic systems, can also exist in ferroelectrics.
Researchers at the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute, together with researchers from several other knowledge institutions, have developed a 'flexo-electric' nanomaterial. The material has built-in mechanical ...
Arranging polymer nanotubes in a vertical array enhances piezoelectric properties for acoustic sensors
An array of hollow piezoelectric polymer nanotubes grown by A*STAR researchers could be used as an extremely sensitive acoustic sensor.
