Locked movement in molecular motor and rotor

For a motor to power machinery, the local motion has to be translated into the ordered movement of other parts of the system. Organic chemists have now achieved this in a molecular motor.

Fermented foams: Graphene composite foams using beer yeasts

In a novel fermentation method, researchers have developed graphene-containing rubber foams with unusual mechanical and electrical behaviours: when stretched, the composite foams expand and become more conductive. These unexpected properties could be promising for use in smart filters and medical devices.

Researchers flip the script on magnetocapacitance

Researchers show that by using different materials to build a quantum tunneling junction, they were able to alter capacitance by manipulating spins in the opposite way from 'normal' magnetocapacitance. This inverse effect, the researchers say, adds one more potentially useful phenomenon to the spintronics toolkit.
