When it comes to trying to model the properties and behavior of systems of atoms, scientists use two fundamentally different pictures of reality, one of which is called 'statistical' and the other 'dynamical'. The two approaches have at times been at odds, but scientists announced a way to reconcile the two pictures.
Researchers have successfully demonstrated charge transport between Nitrogen-Vacancy color centers in diamond. The team developed a novel multi-color scanning microscopy technique to visualize the charge transport.
Engineers discover that samarium nickelate shows promise for active photonic devices - SmNiO3 could potentially transform optoelectronic technologies, including smart windows, infrared camouflage, and optical communications.
Scientists have developed a simple and effective method for the formation of robust covalent ONTs from simple molecules. This method is expected to be useful in generating a range of nanotube-based materials with desirable properties.
Researchers have discovered a type of drug delivery system that may offer new hope for patients with a rare, ultimately fatal genetic disorder - and make what might become a terrible choice a little easier.
Scientists have engineered a novel nanoscale drug delivery vehicle which can be tuned to release a range of cargos. The drug delivery system consists of self-assembled DNA nanopores embedded in nanometre-sized 'bubbles' known as polymersomes.
New research shows that a nanometer-thin layer of water between two charged surfaces exhibits ice-like tendencies that allow it to withstand pressures of hundreds of atmospheres. The discovery could lead to better ways to minimize friction in a variety of settings.
