Electrical engineers have created the world's first electromagnetic metamaterial made without any metal. The device's ability to absorb electromagnetic energy without heating up has direct applications in imaging, sensing and lighting.
Treated particles of graphene derived from carbon nanotubes have demonstrated remarkable potential as life-saving antioxidants, but as small as they are, something even smaller had to be created to figure out why they work so well.
Advanced photonic nanostructures are well on their way to revolutionising quantum technology for quantum networks based on light. Researchers have now developed the first building blocks needed to construct complex quantum photonic circuits for quantum networks.
