Scientists at Rice University and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, have discovered a method to make atomically flat gallium that shows promise for nanoscale electronics.
Taking earth's inner temperature: Surprising new study finds that the mantle is hotter than we thought
The temperature of Earth's interior affects everything from the movement of tectonic plates to the formation of the planet.
Using powerful computer simulations, researchers from Brown University have identified a material with a higher melting point than any known substance.
New laser-driven compression experiments reproduce the conditions deep inside exotic super-Earths and giant planet cores, and the conditions during the violent birth of Earth-like planets, documenting the material properties ...
Antarctic fishes that manufacture their own "antifreeze" proteins to survive in the icy Southern Ocean also suffer an unfortunate side effect, researchers report: The protein-bound ice crystals that accumulate inside their ...
Improved liquid battery: Longer-lasting materials could enable batteries that make renewables more competitive
