A novel coating made from carbon nanotubes that, when layered around an aluminum-conductor composite core transmission line, reduces the line's operating temperature and significantly improves its overall transmission efficiency.
Scientists have discovered how to get a solid material to act like a liquid without actually turning it into liquid, potentially opening a new world of possibilities for the electronic, optics and computing industries.
Physicists, joining the fundamental pursuit of using electron spins to store and manipulate information, have demonstrated a new approach to doing so, which could prove useful in the application of low-power computer memory.
Scientists developed mathematical models to characterize proteomics patterns of Caco-2/HT29-MTX cells exposed for three and twenty four hours to two kinds of important nanoparticles: multi-walled carbon nanotubes and TiO2 nanobelts.
Researchers have demonstrated that electronic interactions play a significant role in the dimensional crossover of semiconductor nanomaterials. The show that a critical length scale marks the transition between a zero-dimensional, quantum dot and a one-dimensional nanowire.
Thanks to a new process, it is now possible to systematically test a large number of chemical reactions in a very small space and within a short time. It enables freely selectable molecules embedded in solid materials to react with each other in a nanometer-sized space.
Being able to determine magnetic properties of materials with sub-nanometer precision would greatly simplify development of magnetic nano-structures for future spintronic devices. In a new article, physicists make a big step towards this goal.
Researchers are pushing the limits of electron microscopy into the tens of picometer scale, a fraction of the size of a hydrogen atom. The ability to see at this subatomic level is crucial in designing new materials with unprecedented properties, such as materials that transition from metals to semiconductors or that exhibit superconductivity.
