In work that could help make possible a faster, longer-lasting and lower-energy method of data storage for consumers and businesses, researchers have developed a technique for imaging and studying a promising class of magnetic devices with 10 times more detail than optical microscopes.
Researchers have devised disordered arrangement of the antennas to minimize redundancy between the antennas and enabled each antenna to function independently. As a result, the device can provide 40 times wider bandwidth than existing antennas periodically arranged.
Researchers have succeeded in controlling the growth of organic molecules using a special trick. Molecules that repel each other play a key role in this process: due to their opposing forces, they always keep a certain distance from their neighbours.
To disclose molecular processes behind AuNP growth in protein nanocages, a group of biomolecular engineers used high-resolution crystallography and analyzed the formation of Au nanoclusters in ferritin.
A research team has observed the counterintuitive motion of electrons during experiments. Because this sort of quantum transport is very efficient, it could play a key role in a new type of manmade material that could be used someday in solar cells and electronics.
