This miniscule wire - comprising a carbon nanotube located inside a boron nitride nanotube - can be produced on a preparative scale and may represent an important step towards the miniaturisation of electronic devices.
Researchers have created a graphene-based device, in which electron spins can be injected and detected with unprecedented efficiency. The result is a hundredfold increase of the spin signal, big enough to be used in real life applications, such as new spin transistors and spin-based logic.
Researchers propose a new, multistable, shape-reconfigurable design combined with a battery packing concept that leads to 2D and 3D polymorphed states, while preserving the electrochemical functionality.
Engineers reproducibly achieve the current blockade effect using atomically precise molecules at room temperature, a result that could lead to shrinking electrical components and boosting data storage and computing power.
