In a surprising discovery, researchers determine that the atomic structure of irradiated materials is closer to liquid than glass - which may have significant implications for the selection of materials for nuclear applications.
Researchers have successfully designed a new structural organization using the promising solar cell material perovskite. The study shows that solar cells increase in efficiency thanks to the material's ability to self-organise by standing on edge.
Scientists reveal new insights into the properties of a magnetic insulator that is a candidate for low-power device applications; their insights form early stepping-stones towards developing high-speed, low-power electronics that use electron spin rather than charge to carry information.
Inspired by how mammals see, a new memristor computer circuit prototype has the potential to process complex data, such as images and video orders of magnitude, faster and with much less power than today's most advanced systems.
