A quantum wave in two crystals

Particles can move as waves along different paths at the same timeā€”this is one of the most important findings of quantum physics. A particularly impressive example is the neutron interferometer: neutrons are fired at a ...

Defects in quartz crystal structure reveal the origin of dust

Global warming and a progressively drier climate in many parts of the world are causing more dust storms. To predict how these storms are caused, researchers are looking into the past to understand where the dust came from, ...

Graphene crystals grow better under copper cover

An approach that produces single-crystal graphene sheets on large-scale electrically insulating supports could help with the development of next-generation nanomaterial-based devices, such as very light and thin touchscreens, ...

Ultra-high magneto-mechanical damping in Fe-Ga single crystals

Fe-18 at.%Ga alloys with magnetostrictive coefficients up to 400 ppm are expected to have high damping based on the magneto-mechanical hysteresis damping (MMHD) model. However, in some studies of the magnetostrictive properties ...
