A new light on significantly faster computer memory devices

A team of scientists from Arizona State University's School of Molecular Sciences and Germany have published in Science Advances online today an explanation of how a particular phase-change memory (PCM) material can work ...

The mechanism behind shear thinning in supercooled liquids

Researchers at the University of Tokyo report that two-body structural entropy is the key quantity to understanding the dynamics of sheared supercooled liquids and also the mechanism behind the phenomenon of shear thinning.

A flexible material that generates electricity when stressed

Researchers from Empa have developed a flexible material that generates electricity when stressed. In future, it might be used as a sensor, integrated into clothing or even implanted in the human body, for instance, to power ...

Solid or liquid? Researcher proposes a new definition of glass

Is glass a solid or a liquid? This question, which has been vigorously debated by specialists in the field for some decades, has just been answered anew: "Glass is a non-equilibrium, non-crystalline state of matter that appears ...

Researchers achieve 4-D printed material

For the first time, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have successfully 3-D printed composite silicone materials that are flexible, stretchable and possess shape memory behavior, a discovery that could ...
