Researchers discover new fundamental quantum mechanical property

Nanotechnologists at the University of Twente research institute MESA+ have discovered a new fundamental property of electrical currents in very small metal circuits. They show how electrons can spread out over the circuit ...

Researchers create light from 'almost nothing'

(PhysOrg.com) -- A group of physicists working out of Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, have succeeded in proving what was until now, just theory; and that is, that visible photons could be produced ...

Can ultrashort electron flashes help harvest nuclear energy?

The group led by Fabrizio Carbone at EPFL and international colleagues have used ultrafast transmission electron microscopy to take attosecond energy-momentum resolved snapshots (1 attosecond = 10-18 or quintillionths of ...

Electronics play by a new set of rules at the molecular scale

(Phys.org)—In a paper published in Nature Nanontechnology on September 2, 2012, scientists from the DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory and Columbia University's departments of Chemistry and of Applied Physics explore ...
