You may not be able to channel the Force, but you may be able to wield a light saber. Researchers have managed to coax photons into binding together to form molecules, a state of matter that, until recently, had been purely theoretical.
A team of Stanford engineers has developed a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, paving the way for the next generation of energy-efficient electronics.
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology have succeeded in combining graphene light detectors with semiconductor chips, a crucially important step to develop highly advanced and miniaturized optoelectronics.
Not only does icephobic research have the potential to improve everyday products like ice cream scoops, car windshields, and metal roofs, but it will also have a broad impact across industry (for example, in studying ice buildup on turbine blades, airplanes, and oil and gas rigs).
The gravitational strength on Earth varies because Earth is not a perfect sphere of homogenous (uniform) mass density.
Want to control light? Scientists have discovered a new way to do so. They've demonstrated the ability of two-dimensional disordered photonic band gap material to be a platform to control light in unprecedented ways.
The stage is now set for superconductivity to branch out and meet some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today.
Researchers from North Carolina State University used airbrushing techniques to grow vertically aligned carbon nanofibers on several different metal substrates, opening the door for incorporating these nanofibers into gene delivery devices, sensors, batteries and other technologies.
Researchers find that tiny molecules passing through nanotubes can be propelled or slowed depending on their size.
Inspired by an enzyme in soil microorganisms, researchers develop first synthetic iron-based catalyst for the conversion of nitrogen to ammonia.
Hydrocarbons are a huge part of our lives on Earth. Yet the hydrocarbon methane (CH4), which is one of the most abundant molecules in the universe, has puzzled scientists for years. Now, scientists have learned a little bit more about this hydrocarbon, helping them understand the processes and condi...
Five years ago, at breakfast time, the world waited anxiously for news from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The first nervy bunch of protons were due to be fired around the European lab’s latest and biggest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as it kicked i...
