Creating new physical properties in materials

A collaborative effort between research groups demonstrates that the physical properties of SrTiO3, or strontium titanate, in its single crystal form can be changed by a relatively simple electrical treatment. SrTi03 is a mineral often studied for its superconducting properties.

Programmable disorder - Stochastic algorithms at the molecular scale

In contrast to biology, engineering seldom takes advantage of the power of randomness for fabricating complex structures. Now, a group scientists has demonstrated that randomness in molecular self-assembly can be combined with deterministic rules to produce complex nanostructures out of DNA.

Engineers create prototype chip just three atoms thick

Ever since scientists discovered that atomically thin materials could have useful electronic properties, engineers have been seeking ways to mass-produce so-called single-layer chips. A new technique shows how it might be done.
