Joint venture at the nanoscale - when superconductivity material science meets nuclear physics

Scientists report fabricating and testing a superconducting nanowire device applicable to high-speed photon counting for nuclear physics experiments that were previously thought impossible. This device operates at temperatures near to absolute zero in magnetic fields forty times stronger than previous such devices and is able to detect low-energy photons as well as other fundamental particles.

Scientists pair machine learning with tomography to learn about material interfaces

Researchers have put a new technique based on machine learning to work uncovering the secrets of buried interfaces and edges in a material. By using machine learning as an image processing technique, scientists can dramatically accelerate the heretofore laborious manual process of quantitatively looking at interfaces without having to sacrifice accuracy.

A new template for nonspherical viral nanocage

In nature, viruses use nanocages to protect their genome. Some of these viruses can be disassembled into protein units to remove their genome. These protein units can then be reassembled into nanocages by other templates, the so-called virus-like particles.

Stress-relief substrate helps OLED stretch two-dimensionally

Researchers have created stretchable OLEDs (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) that are compliant and maintain their performance under high-strain deformation. Their stress-relief substrates have a unique structure and utilize pillar arrays to reduce the stress on the active areas of devices when strain is applied.
