Scientists have taken a big step toward the practical application of 'valleytronics', which is a new type of electronics that could lead to faster and more efficient computer logic systems and data storage chips in next-generation devices.
Scientists show how originally spherical nucleus can transform into cube with high surface-to-volume ratio. These nanocubes are available to be used in practice, and may interest many designers of new materials.
The world is run by catalysts. They clean up after cars, help make fertilizers, and could be the key to better hydrogen fuel. Now, a team of chemists has found a better way to make metal nanoframe catalysts.
