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.

Marrying superconductors, lasers, and Bose-Einstein condensates

As superconductors, lasers, and Bose-Einstein condensates all share a common feature, it has been expected that it should be able to see these features at the same time. A recent experiment in a global collaborative effort has observed for the first time experimental indication that this expectation is true.

Supergelators hold key to more effective oil spill cleanup

In a bid to improve the technology utilized by cleanup crews to manage and contain such large spills, researchers have invented a smart nanofiber-based oil-scavenging material or supergelators that could help clean up oil spills efficiently and rapidly to prevent secondary pollution.
