Solid and liquid at the same time

Microscopically small particles can spontaneously self-assemble into complex layered structures with remarkable properties, according to calculations performed at the TU Wien.

Scientists lay out why some origami won't fold under pressure

Scientists and engineers are fascinated by self-folding structures. Imagine the possibilities: heart stents that unfold in the right location or pop-up tents that assemble at the press of a button, as well as nanoscale versions ...

Imaging at the speed of light

Tiny micro- and nanoscale structures within a material's surface are invisible to the naked eye, but play a big role in determining a material's physical, chemical, and biomedical properties.

Neutrons prove the existence of 'spiral spin-liquid'

Magnetic moments ("spins") in magnetic solids are capable of forming the most diverse structures. Some of them are not only of interest from a scientific point of view, but also from a technical standpoint: processors and ...
