Iranian researchers from Material and Energy Research Center studied the effects of nanoparticles on mechanical and thermal properties of ceramics used in thermal insulators.
Unconventional photoconduction in an atomically thin semiconductor: New mechanism of photoconduction could lead to next-generation excitonic devices
It's a well-known phenomenon in electronics: Shining light on a semiconductor, such as the silicon used in computer chips and solar cells, will make it more conductive. But now researchers have discov...
Nanoparticles get a magnetic handle: New method produces particles that can glow with color-coded light and be manipulated with magnets
A long-sought goal of creating particles that can emit a colorful fluorescent glow in a biological environment, and that could be precisely manipulated into position within living cells, has been achi...
