Need your dielectric to stick to graphene? Just add water

An application highly desired by the semiconductor industry is graphene's potential role as a replacement for silicon as a substrate in microchips. Thanks to an innovative technique for applying dielectrics (insulating layers) onto graphene, that goal is a bit closer to reality.

Fabricating nanostructures with silk could make clean rooms green rooms

Engineers have demonstrated that it is possible to generate nanostructures from silk in an environmentally friendly process that uses water as a developing agent and standard fabrication techniques. This approach provides a green alternative to the toxic materials commonly used in nanofabrication while delivering fabrication quality comparable to conventional synthetic polymers.

Record quantum entanglement of multiple dimensions

An international team of researchers has managed to create an entanglement of 103 dimensions with only two photons. The record had been established at 11 dimensions. The discovery could represent a great advance toward the construction of quantum computers with much higher processing speeds than current ones, and toward a better encryption of information.
