Material scientists use stimulated Raman scattering microscopy to observe -- for the first time -- ions moving in liquid electrolyte; findings could lead to improving battery safety while also increasing next-generation energy storage.
A research team proposes a simple, effective, and versatile method to prepare a series of functional carbin nanomaterials from small organic molecules by a transition metal assisted carbonization process.
Researchers are examining tin as a silicon-friendly material to help create new cost-effective memory devices. The new candidate offers the same performance advantages of more commonly used elements such as copper or silver, yet is compatible with silicon.
Researchers have created a new type of optical system. Their 'nano-hedgehogs of light', also known as optical skyrmions, set the stage for a new platform for information processing, transfer and storage applications.
