Researchers have developed an inexpensive, scalable smart surface that is powered by just a conventional electric battery. The copper-based surface changes from being highly water-repellent (superhydrophobic) to highly water-absorbent (superhydrophilic) as electric potential is applied.
Researchers have utilized computational modeling to mimic natural systems' quorum sensing behavior in synthetic materials, which could lead to devices with the ability for self-recognition and self-regulation.
Researchers demonstrate a new way to produce high-density clusters of aligned quantum sensors in diamond just nanometers from the surface, offering submolecular sensitivity to microscopy like never before.
A research team produced their electronic graphene structures through a chemical reaction. They evaporated the precursor molecules onto a gold crystal, where they react in a very controlled way to yield new chemical compounds.
