New research describes a novel physical mechanism that separates particles according to their size during the drying of wet coatings. The discovery could help improve the performance of a wide variety of everyday goods, from paint to sunscreen.
IRT Nanoelec, an R+D consortium focused on information and communication technologies using micro- and nanoelectronics, today announced the first co-integration of a III-V/silicon laser and silicon Mach Zehnder modulator demonstrating 25 Gbps transmission on a single channel. This transmission rate usually is achieved using an external source, over a 10 km single-mode fiber.
Researchers nvestigated special nanoplates with platinum particles on them, accelerating the chemical conversion. During his research, they discovered why the effect of these particles is less than commonly expected.
Atomic motion in a crystalline oxide that was used as a cathode in Li-ion batteries was directly demonstrated by state-of-an-art transmission electron microscopy, revealing the transient pathway of a chemical ordering reaction.
You probably don't think much of fungi, and especially those that turn bread moldy, but researchers have evidence that might just change your mind. Their findings suggest that a red bread mold could be the key to producing more sustainable electrochemical materials for use in rechargeable batteries.
Scientists have been able for the first time to measure how new bonds influence molecules: they have reconstructed the 'energy landscape' of acetone molecules and thereby empirically established the formation of hydrogen bonds between acetone and chloroform molecules.
Scientists show how different arrangements of atoms can be combined into nanowires as they grow. Researchers learning to control the properties of materials this way can lead the way to more efficient electronic devices.
Scientists examined how the structure of their oxyhydride compounds changed with composition and synthesis conditions. They also studied characteristics of the electronic structure that suggested an ionic Li-H bond in the compound, namely the existence of H in the oxides.
