Researchers have developed a new fabrication method that makes tiny, thin-film electronic circuits peelable from a surface. The technique not only eliminates several manufacturing steps and the associated costs, but also allows any object to sense its environment or be controlled through the application of a high-tech sticker.
Scientists have designed a range of nanostructures resembling marine diatoms. Using a technique known as DNA origami, the group designed nanoscale platforms of various shapes to which particles of silica, drawn by electrical charge, could stick.
Scientists have discovered a new way to closely look at the electronic quantum behaviour of materials, giving a deeper understanding of how they could be used for future quantum computing applications.
