Graphene slides smoothly across gold

Graphene, a modified form of carbon, offers versatile potential for use in coating machine components and in the field of electronic switches. An international team of researchers led by physicists at the University of Basel ...

Image: Tethys dwarfed by Saturn

It is easy to forget just how large Saturn is, at around 10 times the diameter of Earth. And with a diameter of about 72,400 miles (116,500 kilometers), the planet simply dwarfs its retinue of moons. One of those satellites, ...

Faster, finer filtration

The right blend of polymers enables rapid and molecule-selective filtering of tiny particles from water.

A new X-ray microscope for nanoscale imaging

Delivering the capability to image nanostructures and chemical reactions down to nanometer resolution requires a new class of x-ray microscope that can perform precision microscopy experiments using ultra-bright x-rays from ...

Hierarchically porous polymers with fast absorption

A research team at KAIST has developed a method to form micropores of less than 2 nanometers within porous polymers where 10 nanometers long mesopores connect like a net. The advantage of the porous polymers is fast absorption ...
