Usually, the movement of electrons in a real material is rather different from the flow of water in a river. However, in extraordinary materials like the metal oxide PdCoO2, 'electron rivers' can exist, as predicted theoretically over fifty years ago and now demonstrated by scientists.
Scientists have combined advanced in-situ microscopy and theoretical calculations to uncover important clues to the properties of a promising next-generation energy storage material for supercapacitors and batteries.
Researchers have demonstrated the world's thinnest CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite nanosheets by a two-step synthesis method through the combination of solution process to produce 2D PbI2 nanosheets and vapour-phase conversion of the PbI2 to CH3NH3PbI3 nanosheets.
A group of scientists has developed a fundamentally new type of memory cell based on superconductors ? this type of memory will be able to work hundreds of times faster than the types of memory devices commonly used today.
This research presents a method for utilizing enhanced darkfield microscopy (EDFM) and hyperspectral imaging (HSI) to easily and rapidly image nanoparticles in tissues from toxicology studies and map the distribution of nanoparticles throughout biological samples based on elemental composition.
Researchers have demonstrated a new type of laser that is able to produce laser beams 'with a twist' as its output. The outputs and superpositions of the new type of laser form a set of beams, called vector vortex beams.
Someday, cicadas and dragonflies might save your sight. The key to this power lies in their wings, which are coated with a forest of tiny pointed pillars that impale and kill bacterial cells unlucky enough to land on them.
