Modeling superfast processes in organic solar cell material

In organic solar cells, carbon-based polymers convert light into charges that are passed to an acceptor. This type of material has great potential, but to unlock this, a better understanding is needed of the way in which ...

Scientists reveal 'magic boron clusters' on monolayer borophene

Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with collaborators from the University of Science and Technology of China, have revealed the formation of boron clusters with magic numbers ...

Optomechanics simulates graphene lattices

The precise control of micro-mechanical oscillators is fundamental to many contemporary technologies, from sensing and timing to radiofrequency filters in smartphones. Over the past decade, quantum control of mechanical systems ...

New model found for microsphere-enhanced interferometry

Optical measurement techniques collecting light intensity in the far-field such as conventional and confocal microscopy or coherence scanning interferometry (CSI) enable fast and contactless inspection of several types of ...

What's keeping global biodiversity at bay?

An article in the journal Science Advances, published by scientists from Prague┬┤s Charles University (Center for Theoretical Study and Faculty of Science), shows that the Earth's biodiversity is regulated on the scale of ...

Prions: New possible therapeutic target discovered

Prion diseases, such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy ("mad cow disease"), are lethal neurodegenerative infectious diseases that affect humans and other mammals and for which there is currently no cure.
