A miniaturized sensor that can measure chemistry on a chip

By combining expertise in nanophotonics and materials science, researchers have laid the groundwork for a chemical sensor on a chip that could be used in small portable devices to analyze samples in a lab, monitor air and water quality in the field and perhaps even detect explosives.

A novel method to untangle metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes

Researchers managed to reverse the electronic characteristics of a polymer known to disperse semiconducting nanotubes - while leaving the rest of the polymer's structure intact. By so doing, they have reversed the process, leaving the semiconducting nanotubes behind while making it possible to disperse the metallic nanotubes.

Does ecology reach all the way down to the subatomic scale?

Advances in our understanding of the profound connections between atomic-scale processes and biological molecules serve to deepen, if not transform, the way we regard ecological processes - and, by implication, living things, no matter how invisible.

New material discovery allows study of elusive Weyl fermion

Researchers have discovered a new type of Weyl semimetal, a material that opens the way for further study of Weyl fermions, a type of massless elementary particle hypothesized by high-energy particle theory and potentially useful for creating high-speed electronic circuits and quantum computers.

How shaping light can change particle behavior

Scientists found that the interactions between particles trapped in light distributed along an optical microfiber, as well as the speed of particle movement were different based on the light's characteristics.
