The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics celebrated the rich behaviour of two-dimensional (2-D) materials, like atoms, molecules, or electrons that are confined to move on a flat surface.
Glass is everywhere. Whether someone is gazing out a window or scrolling through a smartphone, odds are that there is a layer of glass between them and whatever it is they're looking at.
Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have established new findings on the properties of two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a widely studied semiconductor of the future.
Molecules move faster as they get closer to adhesive surfaces, but this effect is not permanent. Such is the puzzling conclusion of a study published in Physical Review Letters, carried out by Simone Napolitano and his colleagues ...
A long-standing but unproven assumption about the X-ray spectra of black holes in space has been contradicted by hands-on experiments performed at Sandia National Laboratories' Z machine.
In an article published today (Thursday, Aug. 24) in the American Physical Society journal Physical Review Letters, researchers reported observing unexpected instantaneous phase shifts during atomic scattering.
Every curious person must have observed air bubbles rising through an aquarium tank of water.
For the last decade, scientists have sought topological insulators, materials that are insulating on the inside but conduct current on their surfaces. Although first predicted around 2005, very few real-world examples have ...
