Silver sheds light on superconductor secrets
(Phys.org)—By doping a bismuth-based layered material with silver, Chinese scientists demonstrated that superconductivity is intrinsic to the new material rather than stemming from its impurities.
New research could offer better cell reception at lower cost
(Phys.org)—Have you ever been in the middle of an important phone call when suddenly the line goes dead for no apparent reason? Dropped cell phone calls are irritating and far too common. Researchers at ...
Energy savings—easy as dirt, heat, pressure
(Phys.org)—By using common materials found pretty much anywhere there is dirt, a team of Michigan State University researchers have developed a new thermoelectric material.
Development of novel conduction control technique for graphene
Researchers at the Nanoelectronics Research Institute of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), in joint work with a NIMS team, have developed a novel technique for controlling the electrical ...
Electron microscopes with a twist
Vortex beams, rotating like a tornado, offer completely new possibilities for electron microscopy. A method of producing extremely intense vortex beams has been discovered at the Vienna University of Technology ...
Scientists study protein dynamical transitions
(PhysOrg.com) -- Central to life and all cellular functions, proteins are complex structures that are anything but static, though often illustrated as two-dimensional snapshots in time.
