Scientists have discovered a new kind of magnetic nano-object in a novel material that could serve as a magnetic bit with cloaking properties to make a magnetic disk drive with no moving parts - a Racetrack Memory - a reality in the near future.
Researchers have achieved the first measurements of thermal conductivity of warm dense aluminum - a prototype material commonly used in model development - by heating a dual-layer target of gold and aluminum with laser-generated protons.
A new study takes a new approach to killing cancer: Why not fry it into oblivion with vibrating gold nanoparticles? "But what about the frickin' lasers?" you may ask. Don't worry. There are lasers. And bioluminescence too.
