Scientists have discovered that perovskites possess two contradictory properties necessary to make spintronic devices work - the electrons' spin can be easily controlled, and can also maintain the spin direction long enough to transport information, a property known as spin lifetime.
Researchers have shown for the first time the monolithic integration of a CMOS integrated circuit with graphene, resulting in a high-resolution image sensor consisting of hundreds of thousands of photodetectors based on graphene and quantum dots.
An international research team has discovered a clear link between quantum fluctuations and the effective charge of current-carrying particles. This discovery will help researchers uncover how quantum fluctuations govern systems in which many particles interact.
A new study illustrates a strategy for curing full-thickness wounds infected by multidrug-resistant multidrug-resistant bacteria via an electrospun scaffold containing pharmaceutical intermediate-capped gold nanoparticles.
Scientists report on a study that could open up the field for nanopore-based protein identification - and eventually proteomic profiling of large numbers of proteins in complex mixtures of different types of molecules.
Chemists have developed a catalyst with self-healing properties. Under the challenging conditions of water electrolysis for hydrogen production, the catalyst material regenerates itself, as long as the components required for this are present in the electrolyte solution.
