Physiker der Universität Würzburg haben Siliziumkarbid-Kristalle so verändert, dass sie neue, überraschende Eigenschaften zeigen. Das macht sie interessant für den Bau leistungsfähiger Computer oder für die Datenübertragung.
In a discovery with applications ranging from hair dyeing to electronic sensors to development of materials with improved properties, scientists are reporting the first synthesis of gold nanoparticles inside human hairs.
Javad Hashemi has studied the electronic properties and conductivity of different structures based on carbon nanotubes in his doctoral dissertation for the Aalto University Department of Applied Physics.
By showing that tiny particles injected into a liquid crystal medium adhere to existing mathematical theorems, physicists at the University of Colorado Boulder have opened the door for the creation of a host of new materials with properties that do not exist in nature.
Scientists investigated the electronic properties of nickel coated with graphene and achieved an astonishing result. They could show that the conduction electrons of the graphene behave rather as light than as particles.
Mathematics explains the observed 'beautiful and complex patterns revealed' in three-dimensional liquid crystal experiments, expected to lead to creation of new materials that can be actively controlled.
