New research reveals why the "supermaterial" graphene has not transformed electronics as promised, and shows how to double its performance and finally harness its extraordinary potential. Graphene is the strongest material ever tested. It's also flexible, transparent and conducts...
For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the...
It’s hard to believe that over half a century ago, we were first introduced the enormous and clunky box called a television set. Your grandparents can tell you that when they first started watching TV, pictures were black and...
Researchers from the University of Helsinki and the University of Tübingen have come up with a new way of analysing sand in mountain rivers to determine the activity of landslides upstream, which has important implications for understanding natural...
Robots can play an important role in the education of young people but will never fully replace teachers, a new study suggests. Writing in Science Robotics, scientists say social robots are proving effective in the teaching of certain narrow...
Without special instrumentation, the Sun looks calm and inert. But beneath that placid façade are countless miniature explosions called nanoflares. These small but intense eruptions are born when magnetic field lines in the Sun's atmosphere tangle up and stretch...
Quantum dots are nanometer-sized boxes that have attracted huge scientific interest for use in nanotechnology because their properties obey quantum mechanics and are requisites to develop advanced electronic and photonic devices. Quantum dots that self-assemble during their formation...
An unusually complex form of one of the most abundant chemical elements on Earth has been revealed in the lab for the first time. Researchers created a crystallised version of nitrogen -- which at normal conditions is the main...
While water is perceived to be one of the simplest substances in the world, modeling its behavior on the atomic or molecular level has frustrated scientists for decades. To date, no single model has been able to accurately...
A couple of sugars, a dash of enzymes, a pinch of salt, a splash of polyethylene glycol, carefully arranged in watery baths. And researchers had made a synthetic organelle, which they used in a new study to explore...
