New research shows unlimited heat conduction in graphene

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz and the National University of Singapore have attested that the thermal conductivity of graphene diverges with the size of the samples. This discovery challenges the fundamental laws of heat conduction for extended materials.

Digital lab-on-a-chip designs

Generally, a lab-on-a-chip (LOC) can run no more than a test or two. That's because the chips are designed manually. If the LOC were made using computer-aided design, you could run dozens of tests with a single drop of blood.

Groundbreaking new memory technology, which combines flash with phase change memory

Theseus was a great hero in Greek mythology known for qualities such as strength, courage and wisdom. Therefore it's no surprise that a team of Greek IBM scientists in Zurich and a professor from the University of Patras, Greece, borrowed his name as a codeword for a groundbreaking new memory technology, which combines flash with phase change memory (PCM) on a PCI-e card. Initial tests have clocked 12x and 275x improvements - and that's no myth.

Scientists find x-rays can cause reversible resistance changes

Synchrotron X-rays are frequently used to image a wide range of different materials, but they can also cause chemical changes as well. In a new study, researchers looked at how a material?s electrical resistance changes when it is irradiated with these high-energy X-rays.

Catalysis with gold-tipped CdSe nanorod clusters

The Au-tipped CdSe nanorods were found to significantly increase the efficiency for charge separation and collection of energetic electrons in the Au nanoparticles, leading to an exceptional improvement in photocatalyzing multiple-electron reduction (MER) reactions, even in aerobic aqueous solutions at room temperature.
