By doping a thermoelectric material with minute amounts of sulfur, a team of researchers has found a new path to large improvements in the efficiency of materials for solid-state heating and cooling a...
Ferroelectric Materials React Unexpectedly to Strain: Layered perovskites turn off polarity under too much strain
Up until recently, researchers thought they had the behaviors of ferroelectric materials mostly figured out. "The conventional wisdom is that you can put almost any material under mechanical stress...
UChicago physicists first to see behavior of quantum materials in curved space: Feat probes light-matter interplay, phenomena of potential technological interest
Light and matter are typically viewed as distinct entities that follow their own, unique rules. Matter has mass and typically exhibits interactions with other matter, while light is massless and does...
A new study by a multi-institutional team, led by researchers from Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University, has revealed exotic magnetic properties in a rare-earth based intermetalli...
Counter electrode made from the carbon sheet works well in different electrolytes.
Bill Burton, UIC News CenterAn ultrathin film that is both transparent and highly conductive to electric current has been produced by a cheap and simple method devised by an international team of nanomaterials researchers fro

New membrane could replace conventional flammable organic liquid electrolyte systems in lithium-ion devices.
Nanoprobe enables measurement of protein dynamics in living cells: Mass. General and Harvard researchers use device to measure how anesthetic affects levels of Alzheimer's-associated proteins
A team of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Rowland Institute at Harvard University have used a specialized nanoprobe developed by the Harvard/Rowland investigators to dire...
This paves the way to fast and energy efficient ultrahigh density data storage. The results are published now in the new journal Physical Review Applied.
Leti Innovation Day in Lyon Will Explore New Security Challenges and Responses for a Safe Connected World
eti, an institute of CEA Tech, is hosting a one-day conference covering System Reliability & Security in a Connected World in Lyon, France, on June 23.
FEI Enhances DualBeam Productivity, Precision and Ease-of-Use with New Slice & View Software: The ability to obtain faster, easier, better results increases productivity and lowers cost-per-sample
FEI (NASDAQ: FEIC) today announced the release of the latest version of its Auto Slice &View three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction software, which makes 3D imaging faster, easier, more accurate and co...
Sleep hormone helps breast cancer drug kill more cancer cells: Tiny lipid bubbles packed with melatonin make tamoxifen more effective
Tiny bubbles filled with the sleep hormone melatonin can make breast cancer treatment more effective, which means people need a lower dose, giving them less severe side effects. In a new study publish...
Researchers from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, have demonstrated the ability to manipulate the vibrations of a drum of nanometre scale thickness - realizing the world's smallest...
Discovery of gold nanocluster 'double' hints at other shape changing particles: New analysis approach brings two unique atomic structures into focus
Chemically the same, graphite and diamonds are as physically distinct as two minerals can be, one opaque and soft, the other translucent and hard. What makes them unique is their differing arrangement...
Recent breakthroughs in creating artificial systems that outplay humans in a diverse array of challenging games have their roots in neural networks inspired by information processing in the brain. In...
The Basque Institute of Agricultural Research and Development Neiker-Tecnalia is currently exploring a strategy to remedy soils contaminated by organic compounds containing chlorine (organochlorine co...
A team of physicists that visualized the internal nanostructure of an intact butterfly wing has discovered two physical attributes that make those structures so bright and colorful.
Construct could be used to probe the quantum properties of materials and to make quantum information processing or cryptography devices.
