2-D atoms do the twist

Atoms in a crystal vibrate when heated, creating collective excitations. This leads to the propagation of vibrational waves (phonons), which are similar to the ripples seen on the surface of water. In a new study, scientists demonstrated, for the first time, an intrinsically rotating form of motion for the atoms in a crystal.

Brain-computer interfaces without the mess

It sounds like science fiction: controlling electronic devices with brain waves. But researchers have developed a new type of electroencephalogram (EEG) electrode that can do just that, without the sticky gel required for conventional electrodes.

Time for perovskites

What should be a dream solar panel? Efficient, cheap to produce, durable, flexible and eco-friendly. All these we can get thanks to perovskites: new material offering energy conversion efficiency comparable to silicon panels but much cheaper to produce with simple technology.
