Advanced fabric that can cool a wearer down and warm them up

Textile engineers have developed a fabric woven out of ultra-fine nano-threads made in part of phase-change materials and other advanced substances that combine to produce a fabric that can respond to changing temperatures to heat up and cool down its wearer depending on need.

Nanomaterial from the Middle Ages

To gild sculptures in the late Middle Ages, artists often applied ultra-thin gold foil supported by a silver base layer. For the first time, scientists have managed to produce nanoscale 3D images of this material, known as Zwischgold.

Stabilizing polarons opens up new physics

Physicists have developed a formulation to solve the longstanding problem of electron self-interaction when studying polarons. The work can lead to unprecedented calculations of polarons in large systems, systematic studies of large sets of materials, and molecular dynamics evolving over long time periods.
