Researchers develop new transistor concept

The researchers use metal nanoparticles which are so small that they no longer show their metallic character under current flow but exhibit an energy gap caused by the Coulomb repulsion of the electrons among one another. Via a controlling voltage, this gap can be shifted energetically and the current can thus be switched on and off as desired.

Molecular order promotes cavitation

Researchers have shown that cavitation can occur at a very small scale in liquids with molecular order. Thus, liquid crystals can very easily cavitate when flowing through microfluidic channels.
