Researchers discover a Valleytronics route towards reversible computer

By harnessing the unusual electrical properties of 2D materials such as few-layer black phosphorus and topological Weyl/Dirac semimetal thin films, researchers designed a versatile all-electric-controlled valley filter and demonstrated, for the first time, a concrete working design of valleytronic logic gate capable of performing the full set of two-input Boolean logics.

Panning for nanosilver in laundry wastewater

Silver nanoparticles are being used in clothing for their anti-odor abilities but some of this silver comes off when the clothes are laundered. The wastewater from this process could end up in the environment, possibly harming aquatic life, so researchers have attempted to recover the silver.
