Researchers have synthesized multi-layered nanowires in order to study their magnetoresistance properties. Improving this effect will allow scientists to increase the accuracy of indicators of various measuring instruments, such as compasses and radiation monitors.
Using an advanced, new microscopy technique that can visualize chemical reactions occurring in liquid environments, researchers have discovered a new reason lithium-oxygen batteries tend to slow down and die after just a few charge/discharge cycles.
Scientists observe the real-time formation of hollow structures in the galvanic replacement reaction between silver and gold with nanometre resolution, gaining insights on the mechanisms behind the structural transformations.
Researchers have developed a metamaterial-dielectric that has unique characteristics and is easy to manufacture. This ease of access will allow researchers to use it to create the latest optical devices.
