Maximizing the potential of MXenes

Amidst a surge of research over the last two decades focusing on the special properties of structures that are just an atom or two thick, called "two-dimensional" materials, researchers at Drexel University have steadily ...

Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits—or qubits—that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs ...

Scientists show a new way to absorb electromagnetic radiation

A team of authors from MIPT, Kansas State University, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have demonstrated that it is possible to fully absorb electromagnetic radiation using an anisotropic crystal. The observations are ...

Testing the James Webb Space Telescope with radio waves

The instruments that will fly aboard NASA's James Webb Space Telescope not only have to be tough enough to survive in the cold of space, but they also have to work properly in the electromagnetic environment on the spacecraft, ...

Precision for huge transportation loads

A new, robust control system from Siemens allows huge loads to get to their destinations better. The gigantic loads (bridge components, drilling platforms, and booster rockets for satellites) often weigh thousands of tons ...

FAA moving toward easing electronic device use

The U.S. government is moving toward easing restrictions on airline passengers using electronic devices to listen to music, play games, read books, watch movies and work during taxiing, takeoffs and landings.
