New state of matter detected in a two-dimensional material

An international team of researchers have found evidence of a mysterious new state of matter, first predicted 40 years ago, in a real material. This state, known as a quantum spin liquid, causes electrons - thought to be ...

World's smallest diode developed

The world's smallest diode, the size of a single molecule, has been developed collaboratively by U.S. and Israeli researchers from the University of Georgia and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU).

Scientists push valleytronics one step closer to reality

Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have taken a big step toward the practical application of "valleytronics," which is a new type of electronics that could ...

New fluorescent probes help solve cell membrane mystery

Scientists from Japan, India and the U.S. have observed raft domains—active sections of the cell membrane with special groups of molecules—in live cells for the first time. Their findings will be published this week in ...
