Creating custom light using 2D materials

Scientists have discovered an entire class of two-dimensional materials that are the thickness of one or a few atoms. When combined together, these atomically thin crystals are capable of forming structures that emit customisable light in the desired colour.

Air-powered generator creates electricity 'out of thin air'

Researchers have developed a device that uses a natural protein to create electricity from moisture in the air, a new technology they say could have significant implications for the future of renewable energy, climate change and in the future of medicine.

Scientists propose new properties in hollow multishell structure

The Chinese puzzle ball is an ornate decorative artwork consisting of several concentric shells that move independently of each other. In the past decade, scientists provided a universal method for the fabrication of a conceptually similar micronanoscale structure, called the hollow multishell structure. New work proposes a novel concept of temporal-spatial ordering and dynamic smart behavior in these structures.

Ultrafast switching of an optical bit

Researchers have realized an all-optical bit that is temporarily written into a planar semiconductor nanostructure only using light and that can also be reconfigured only using optical techniques.
