In new research, material scientists report two discoveries that will provide a simple and effective way to 'stencil' high-quality 2D materials in precise locations and overcome a barrier to their use in next-generation electronics.
Scientists have created an artificial synapse capable of autonomous learning, a component of artificial intelligence. The discovery opens the door to building large networks that operate in ways similar to the human brain.
Physicists exploit self-assembly of small particles to someday create functional structures such as micro-robots from the bottom up. Now they took an important step forward by experimentally realizing joints on the micrometer scale.
