Replacement for silicon devices looms big with new discovery

Two-dimensional electronic devices could inch closer to their ultimate promise of low power, high efficiency and mechanical flexibility with a processing technique developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National ...

Bridging the nanoscale gap: A deep look inside atomic switches

A team of researchers from Tokyo Institute of Technology has gained unprecedented insight into the inner workings of an atomic switch. By investigating the composition of the tiny metal 'bridge' that forms inside the switch, ...

Unravelling the mind-body connection with power-efficient IC chip

Despite the advances in neuroscience research, the human brain remains a complex puzzle with questions unanswered about how it controls human behaviour, cognitive functions and movements. Scientists from A*STAR Institute ...

Artificial muscles get graphene boost

Researchers in South Korea have developed an electrode consisting of a single-atom-thick layer of carbon to help make more durable artificial muscles.

First observation of a square lattice of merons and antimerons

Scientists have, for the first time, observed a square lattice of merons and antimerons—tiny magnetic vortices and antivortices that form in a thin plate of the helical magnet Co8Zn9Mn3. By finely varying a magnetic field ...
