Electronics you can wrap around your finger

Electronic devices have shrunk rapidly in the past decades, but most remain as stiff as the same sort of devices were in the 1950s—a drawback if you want to wrap your phone around your wrist when you go for a jog or fold ...

Simultaneous imaging of ferromagnetic and ferroelectric domains

An international team led by researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology have discovered a new way to simultaneously image both the ferromagnetic and the ferroelectric domain structures of multilayer ...

First thin films of spin ice reveal cold secrets

Thin films of spin ice have been shown to demonstrate surprising properties which could help in the development of applications of magnetricity, the magnetic equivalent of electricity.

Promising doped zirconia

Materials belonging to the family of dilute magnetic oxides (DMOs)—an oxide-based variant of the dilute magnetic semiconductors—are good candidates for spintronics applications. This is the object of study for Davide ...
