In a superconductor, everything happens at once

Scientists are closing in on the secret recipe for high-temperature superconductors. The secret ingredients are still unknown, but new research has revealed a little more about how they are mixed. Three previously observed events associated with the emergence of superconductivity turn out to occur at the same time.

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.
