Made to order: Researchers discover a new form of crystalline matter

Scientists recently discovered a new form of crystalline-like matter in strongly magnetized dusty plasma. A feature of dusty plasmas is that under the proper conditions, usually at higher gas pressures, the dust particles can form self-organized, hexagonal structures - a configuration known as a 'plasma crystal'.

Nanopores could take the salt out of seawater

A nanometer-thick sheet of molybdenum disulfide riddled with nanopores is specially designed to let high volumes of water through but keep salt and other contaminates out, a process called desalination.
