Magnetism under the magnifying glass

Being able to determine magnetic properties of materials with sub-nanometer precision would greatly simplify development of magnetic nano-structures for future spintronic devices. In an article published in Nature Communications ...

Samsung hits back at China's Huawei with patent suit

South Korea's Samsung Electronics said Friday it had filed a patent infringement suit in China against Huawei, adding fuel to a growing legal battle between the rival smartphone makers.

Scientists study the types of carbon nanotube 'stuffing'

Marianna Kharlamova of the Lomonosov Moscow State University Department of Materials Science examined different types of carbon nanotube "stuffing" and classified them according to the influence on the properties of the nanotubes. ...

Revealing the nature of magnetic interactions in manganese oxide

For nearly 60 years, scientists have been trying to determine how manganese oxide (MnO) achieves its long-range magnetic order of alternating up and down electron spins. Now, a team of scientists has used their recently developed ...

Making electronics out of coal

Jeffrey Grossman thinks we've been looking at coal all wrong. Instead of just setting it afire, thus ignoring the molecular complexity of this highly varied material, he says, we should be harnessing the real value of that ...
