Spin-currents at metal-oxide interfaces for magnetic memories

New research describes the observation of spin-to-charge current conversion by spin pumping from a ferromagnetic permalloy to a Cu/BiO interface. The metal/insulator interface makes it easier to control the spin-charge current conversion with an external electric field.

Microwaved nanoribbons may bolster oil and gas wells

Researchers combined nanoribbons with an oil-based thermoset polymer intended to make wells more stable and cut production costs. When cured in place with low-power microwaves emanating from the drill assembly, the composite would plug the microscopic fractures that allow drilling fluid to seep through and destabilize the walls.

Quantum physics inside a drop of paint

Inside a drop of paint, light is scattered so often that it seems impossible to demonstrate quantum effects. But despite the thousands of possible paths the light can take, like a drunk person inside a labyrinth, researchers now show that there are just two exits.
