Nanowires grown on graphene have surprising structure

( —When a team of University of Illinois engineers set out to grow nanowires of a compound semiconductor on top of a sheet of graphene, they did not expect to discover a new paradigm of epitaxy.

Scientists create world's thinnest magnet

The development of an ultrathin magnet that operates at room temperature could lead to new applications in computing and electronics—such as high-density, compact spintronic memory devices—and new tools for the study ...

Creating attraction between molecules deep in the periodic table

A McGill-led international research team provides the first experimental and theoretical proof that it is possible to form strong, stable attractions between some of the heavier elements in the periodic table—such as arsenic ...

Computers create recipe for two new magnetic materials

Material scientists have predicted and built two new magnetic materials, atom-by-atom, using high-throughput computational models. The success marks a new era for the large-scale design of new magnetic materials at unprecedented ...

Stretching makes the superconductor

When people imagine "new materials," they typically think of chemistry. But UConn physicist Ilya Sochnikov has another suggestion: mechanics.
