Researchers have demonstrated that the application of a thermal gradient in spintronic devices can cause spin signal to increase as a result of a novel thermoelectric phenomenon predicted and subsequently observed in graphene. Specifically, the enhanced spin signal is two orders of magnitude larger than anything previously reported for thermal effects in metals.
Scientists have developed a new low-cost, environmentally friendly photon upconversion platform that achieves high thermal stability using deep eutectic solvents. Deep eutectic solvents are an emerging class of solvents that are a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to ionic liquids.
Scientists reported new insight into the electronic conduction and interference on 2D-topological insulators - an exotic kind of insulators that conduct only at the edge and that could be key for the development of a new generation of electronic devices.
How can damaged cardiac tissue following a heart attack best be treated with replacement muscle cells? A research team is now presenting an innovative method on mice: Muscle replacement cells, which are to take over the function of the damaged tissue, are loaded with magnetic nanoparticles.
