Scientists have demonstrated a clever way of controlling electrical conductance of a single molecule, by exploiting the molecule
It is now possible to see up to 28 differently labeled microbes in a single field of view, due to a new microscopy technique.
How does a scientist fuel his enthusiasm for chemistry after 60 years? By discovering a new energy source, of course.
Automobiles, military vehicles, even large-scale power generating facilities may someday operate far more efficiently thanks to a new alloy developed at the U.S. Department of Energy
In recent years, topological insulators have become one of the hottest topics in physics. These new materials act as both insulators and conductors, with their interior preventing the flow of electrical currents while their edges or surfaces allow the movement of a charge. Perhaps most importantly, the surfaces of topological insulators enable the transport of spin-polarized electrons while preventing the
Scientists have developed a simple and fast process to manufacture high-quality carbon nanotube-based thin film transistors (TFT) on a plastic substrate, enabling them to manufacture the world
Engineers and scientists collaborating at Harvard University and the MITRE Corporation have developed and demonstrated the world
By imaging fluorescence from gold within a bowtie-shaped device and maximizing the number of photons collected from the device, a Berkeley Lab team has been
Physicists from the University of Birmingham, with colleagues at Imperial College, London and Technical University of Denmark, have demonstrated an
In a complex feat of nanoengineering, a team of scientists at Kyoto University and the University of Oxford have succeeded in creating a programable molecular transport system, the workings of which can be observed in real time. The results, appearing in the latest issue of Nature Nanotechnology, open the door to the development of advanced drug delivery methods and molecular manufacturing systems.
Since the days of Darwin, the
Researchers have discovered a new way of splitting layered materials to give atom-thin nanosheets.This has led to a range of novel two-dimensional
