Unexpectedly large electronic recoil emitted from a simple metal

Photoelectron spectroscopy is a powerful technique for studying the composition and physical properties of a material. Despite its maturity, Yasutaka Takata from the RIKEN SPring-8 Center, Harima, and colleagues have discovered that there are still new things to learn about the physical phenomena on which it is based.

Higher-quality coatings through 'runaway' self-sputtering

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have now developed a powerful new kind of sputter process that can deposit high-quality metal films in complex, three-dimensional nanoscale patterns at a rate that by one important measure is orders of magnitude greater than typical systems

Conducting domain walls could be the ultimate feature for future nanoelectronics

The logic and memory functions of future electronic devices could shrink dramatically - to one or two nanometers instead of the many tens of nanometers that characterize today?s most advanced elements - if a way can be found to control domain walls, the ultrathin transition zones that separate regions of a material having different magnetic, electric, or other properties.

Nanotechnology fine print

Stanford researchers have reclaimed bragging rights for creating the world's smallest writing, a distinction the university first gained in 1985 and lost in 1990.
