Titanium and gold are usually not magnetic and cannot be magnets – unless you combine them just so.
Electron microscopy at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory is pointing researchers closer to the development of ultra-thin materials that transfer electrons with no resistance at relatively high temperatures.
Around 252 million years ago, life on Earth collapsed in spectacular and unprecedented fashion, as more than 96 percent of marine species and 70 percent of land species disappeared in a geological instant. The so-called end-Permian ...
The field of quantum mechanics deals with materials at atomic dimensions, and big discoveries often happen at a very small scale. Researchers in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, in collaboration ...
While climate change menaces vineyards in southern Europe, English winemakers are raising a toast to warming weather as it improves their wines and has helped revive an ancient tradition.
Scientists have projected that the onset of spring plant growth will shift by a median of three weeks earlier over the next century, as a result of rising global temperatures.
Hard, complex materials with many components are used to fabricate some of today's most advanced technology tools. However, little is still known about how the properties of these materials change under specific temperatures, ...
The planet just set another monthly climate record with the hottest June in 135 years, US government scientists said Monday.
UK scientists have pioneered a new way of manipulating several thousand atoms at a time, paving the way for building nanoscale electronic devices more quickly and easily at room temperature.
The El Nino weather phenomenon that began this year could be among the strongest in 65 years, US government scientists said Thursday.
