Monte Carlo simulations bring new focus to electron microscopy

With highly specialized instruments, we can see materials on the nanoscale—but we can't see what many of them do. That limits researchers' ability to develop new therapeutics and new technologies that take advantage of ...

Printed perovskite LEDs

Microelectronics utilize various functional materials whose properties make them suitable for specific applications. For example, transistors and data storage devices are made of silicon, and most photovoltaic cells used ...

Formate dehydrogenase reduces carbon dioxide to formic acid

Professor Yutaka Amao of the Osaka City University Artificial Photosynthesis Research Center and Ryohei Sato, a 1st year Ph.D. student of the Graduate School of Science majoring in Physics and Chemistry, reveal that the catalyst ...

3-D reconstructions of individual nanoparticles

What do you see in the picture above? Merely a precisely-drawn three-dimensional picture of nanoparticles? Far more than that, nanotechnologists will say, due to a new study published in the journal Science. Whether a material ...

Tiny engine powered by demixing fluid

An international team of researchers has developed a tiny, liquid-based engine powered by a demixing fluid. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes their little engine and possible ...

A way to create liquid droplets inside of air bubbles

A team of researchers at Zhejiang University in China has developed a technique to create liquid droplets inside of air bubbles. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes the technique ...
