Fullerene spheres - nanobearings on the test bench (w/video)

Fullerenes seemed to many an excellent candidate for nano-bearings. Unfortunately, the results so far have been conflicting, calling for further studies. Through a series of computer simulations, scientists uncovered the reason for the experimental discrepancies and shed light on the true potential of this material.

Simultaneous imaging of ferromagnetic and ferroelectric domains

Researchers have discovered a new way to simultaneously image both the ferromagnetic and the ferroelectric domain structures of multilayer devices in which a ferromagnetic film is grown on a ferroelectric substrate. These structures have attracted significant recent interest due to their ability to efficiently use voltage to change the magnetization in low-energy magnetic devices.
