Self-driving microrobots

Engineers propose a strategy for microscale robots that can sense symptoms of a material defect and navigate autonomously to the defect site, where corrective actions could be performed.

Pushing the precision of nanoscale mapping

Like all scanning probe microscopes, AFM is susceptible to instrument 'crosstalk', or background signals that can mask the true atomic force measurement of interest and create misleading results. For the first time, researchers offer a new, easy-to-implement approach to overcoming crosstalk challenges in VM-AFM measurements.

Researchers close in on new nonvolatile memory

Researchers came up with a unique method for measuring the electric potential distribution across a ferroelectric capacitor - the device underlying the memory of the future, which would be orders of magnitude faster than the current flash and solid-state drives, withstanding 1 million times as many rewrite cycles.

How to induce magnetism in graphene

Researchers have succeeded in synthesizing a unique nanographene predicted in the 1970s, which conclusively demonstrates that carbon in very specific forms has magnetic properties that could permit future spintronic applications.
