Splitting crystals for 2-D metallic conductivity

Sheets of electrons that are highly mobile in only two dimensions, known as 2-D electron gas, have unique properties that can be leveraged for faster and novel electronic devices. Researchers have been exploring 2-D electron ...

When proteins shake hands

Protein fibres are found virtually everywhere in nature, including in spider silk, wood, the spaces between tissue cells, in tendons, or as a natural sealant for small wounds. These protein nanofibres have outstanding properties ...

Team develos new process for manufacturing SWCNT films

In a finding that could accelerate the development of next-generation wearable and flexible electronics, a team of Skoltech scientists led by Professor Albert Nasibulin has discovered a revolutionary means of improving the ...

Many colours from a single dot

Physicists Bart van Dam and Katerina Newell (Dohnalova) from the UvA Institute of Physics, in collaboration with Emanuele Marino and Peter Schall as well as colleagues from the University of Twente and Jiljin University in ...

Researchers invent light-emitting nanoantennas

Scientists from ITMO University have developed effective nanoscale light sources based on halide perovskite. Such nanosources are based on subwavelength nanoparticles serving both as emitters and nanoantennas and allow enhancing ...
