Oxford Instruments announces the launch of the Io the most compact and easy to use Cryofree continuous cooling solution for milliKelvin devices
Oxford Instruments is pleased to announce its latest new product within the Cryofree® cooling systems family the Io. As part of the companys ongoing innovation strategy, the launch of Io will furth...
Midwater ocean creatures use nanotech camouflage: Optical coatings on crustaceans appear to be living bacteria
Crustaceans that thrive in the vastness of the open ocean have no place to hide from their predators.
Researchers surprised at the unexpected hardness of gallium nitride: A Lehigh University team discovers that the widely used semiconducting material is almost as wear-resistant as diamonds
Gallium nitride (GaN) has emerged as one of the most important and widely used semiconducting materials. Its optoelectronic and mechanical properties make it ideal for a variety of applications, inclu...
So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been surrounded by a virtual hype in the past ten...
When it comes to atomic-scale manufacturing, less really is more: Electrical currents can be now be switched on and off at the smallest conceivable scale enabling a new generation of 'green electronics' with the potential for great impact on the digital e
Robert Wolkow is no stranger to mastering the ultra-small and the ultra-fast. A pioneer in atomic-scale science with a Guinness World Record to boot (for a needle with a single atom at the point), Wol...
An electric current will not only heat a hybrid metamaterial, but will also trigger it to change state and fade into the background like a chameleon in what may be the proof-of-concept of the first co...
In 1959 renowned physicist Richard Feynman, in his talk Plenty of Room at the Bottom, spoke of a future in which tiny machines could perform huge feats. Like many forward-looking concepts, his molec...
Mechanism for sodium storage in 2-D material: Tin selenide is an effective host for storing sodium ions, making it a promising material for sodium ion batteries
The mechanism of sodium ion storage in an important two-dimensional material could be a simpler and less toxic route to cheaper batteries, a team of KAUST researchers discovered.
The molecular mechanism that blocks membrane receptors has been identified: The work in which the Ikerbasque researcher of the Biofisika Institute Xabier Contreras has participated has been published in the journal Cell
The study began by taking the medical history of 11 children, all of whom had a disorder due to mycobacteria infections, as the basis. All were discovered to have the same phenotype with the same muta...
