Enlightening and flexing memories

Researchers have shown that a carefully chosen blend of a small photoswitchable molecule and a semiconducting polymer can be used to fabricate high-performance memory devices that can be written and erased by light.

Spinning up new materials properties

To accurately determine relative energies of the electrons and signatures of the spin-orbit interaction in an oxide material, researchers performed resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS). The results reveal divergent behavior than found from RIXS measurements in related iridates that are candidates for developing high-temperature superconductors.

Atomic sculpting with a microscope

A new tool now rests in the 3D printing toolbox. The electron beam in a scanning transmission electron microscope has been exquisitely controlled with specially programmed electronics to tunnel into non-crystalline material and construct 3D features that are in perfect alignment with the underlying substrate.
