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.
Pseudogap theory puts physicists closer to high temperature superconductors
(Phys.org) —Physicists are one step closer to developing the world's first room-temperature superconductor thanks to a new theory from the University of Waterloo, Harvard and Perimeter Institute.
Silicon-germanium chip sets new speed record
(Phys.org) —A research collaboration consisting of IHP-Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics in Germany and the Georgia Institute of Technology has demonstrated the world's fastest silicon-based ...
Making silicon devices responsive to infrared light
Researchers have tried a variety of methods to develop detectors that are responsive to a broad range of infrared light—which could form imaging arrays for security systems, or solar cells that harness ...
Tiny lasers light up future electronics
(Phys.org) —Faster, smaller electronics are one step closer with researchers from The Australian National University successfully making the first room temperature lasers from gallium arsenide nanowires.
Quantum world record smashed
A normally fragile quantum state has been shown to survive at room temperature for a world record 39 minutes, overcoming a key barrier towards building ultrafast quantum computers.
Accidental discovery dramatically improves electrical conductivity
Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to light. The effect, which lasted for days after ...
Chameleon in lab: Looking cooler when heated, thin coating tricks infrared cameras
(Phys.org) —Active camouflage has taken a step forward at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), with a new coating that intrinsically conceals its own temperature to thermal cameras.
Nanodiamond production in ambient conditions opens door for flexible electronics, implants and more
Instead of having to use tons of crushing force and volcanic heat to forge diamonds, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have developed a way to cheaply make nanodiamonds on a lab bench at atmospheric ...
