Snatching at the cradle of life

Silence of the WA outback key in detecting low-frequency radio waves and, maybe, the precursors of life itself.

New step towards future complex oxide electronics

Researchers from TU Delft, Cornell University and the University of Cagliari report an interesting method for turning a highly insulating material into a highly conducting system. The process involves combining three different ...

Controlling light on a chip at the single-photon level

Integrating optics and electronics into systems such as fiber-optic data links has revolutionized how we transmit information. A second revolution awaits as researchers seek to develop chips in which individual atoms control ...

Interface surprises may motivate novel oxide electronic devices

Complex oxides have long tantalized the materials science community for their promise in next-generation energy and information technologies. Complex oxide crystals combine oxygen atoms with assorted metals to produce unusual ...

Trinity geologists re-write Earth's evolutionary history books

Geologists from Trinity College Dublin have rewritten the evolutionary history books by finding that oxygen-producing life forms were present on Earth some 3 billion years ago – a full 60 million years earlier than previously ...
