A sound boost to extreme laser performance

Diamond is a particularly interesting material for this type of laser for two key reasons. Its high thermal conductivity means it is possible to make miniature lasers that simultaneously have high stability and high power. ...

Growing carbon nanotubes with the right twist

In a recently published paper in Science Advances, Feng Ding of the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials and colleagues have achieved the creation of a specific type of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with a selectivity of ...

From crystals to glasses: a new unified theory for heat transport

Theoretical physicists from SISSA and the University of California at Davis have developed a new approach to heat transport in materials, which finally allows crystals, polycrystalline solids, alloys and glasses to be treated ...
