Unexpected new material has been quenched to ambient pressure

Scientists from the National University of Science and Technology MISIS together with colleagues from Germany and Sweden achieved a result that seemed impossible. The researchers managed to create at ultra-high pressures ...

Carbon capture and conversion must not rely on rare metals

Last year, humans emitted approximately 37 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere – a disastrous and unsustainable figure. To avoid the worst effects of climate change we could capture some of that carbon ...

Researchers discover multilayer band gap using its own technology

Korean researchers at DGIST have proven the existence of the upper band gap of atomic rhenium disulfide (ReS2) layers in the conductive atomic structure of ionization energy. The work resulted from a joint study with Professor ...

New semiconductor holds promise for 2-D physics and electronics

(Phys.org) —From super-lubricants, to solar cells, to the fledgling technology of valleytronics, there is much to be excited about with the discovery of a unique new two-dimensional semiconductor, rhenium disulfide, by ...

New clues to the early Solar System from ancient meteorites

In order to understand Earth's earliest history--its formation from Solar System material into the present-day layering of metal core and mantle, and crust--scientists look to meteorites. New research from a team including ...

Critical minerals ignite geopolitical storm

The clean energy economy of the future hinges on a lot of things, chief among them the availability of the scores of rare earth elements and other elements used to make everything from photovoltaic panels and cellphone displays ...

Refining a cosmic clock

Physicists will soon have a better measure of the age of our galaxy, thanks to experiments described in a trio of papers appearing in the journal Physical Review C.
