Superconducting nanowires show ability to measure magnetic fields
By using DNA molecules as scaffolds, scientists have created superconducting nanodevices that demonstrate a new type of quantum interference and could be used to measure magnetic fields and map regions of superconductivity. (2005-06-16)

First-ever videos show how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale and speed of sound
Using a state-of-the-art ultrafast electron microscope, University of Minnesota researchers have recorded the first-ever videos showing how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale traveling at the speed of sound. (2016-04-15)

Thanks for the memory: More room for data in 'phase-change' material
Engineers have discovered previously unknown properties of a common computer memory material, paving the way for new memory drives, movie discs and computer systems that absorb data more quickly, last longer and allow far more capacity than current data storage media. (2012-05-03)

Spin structure reveals key to new forms of digital storage, study shows
A synthetic compound long known to exhibit interesting transition properties may hold the key to new, non-magnetic forms of information storage, say researchers at the RIKEN SPring-8 Center and their collaborators. The team's latest findings shed light on the complex relationship between a compound's electron spin arrangement and its transport properties, an area researchers have long struggled to understand.

Dark matter or background noise? Results intriguing but not conclusive
Physicists may have glimpsed a particle that is a leading candidate for mysterious dark matter but say conclusive evidence remains elusive. (2010-02-11)

2-D tin (stanene) without buckling: A possible topological insulator
An international research team led by Nagoya University synthesized planar stanene: 2-D sheets of tin atoms, analogous to graphene. Tin atoms were deposited onto the Ag(111) surface of silver. The stanene layer remained extremely flat, unlike in previous studies wherein stanene was buckled. This leads to the formation of large area, high quality samples. Stanene is predicted to be a topological insulator, with applications in quantum computing and nanoelectronics. (2018-01-19)

Award-winning PV cell pushes efficiency higher
It takes outside-the-box thinking to outsmart the solar spectrum and set a world record for solar cell efficiency. The solar spectrum has boundaries and immutable rules. No matter how much solar cell manufacturers want to bend those rules, they can't. So how can we make a solar cell that has a higher efficiency than the rules allow? (2013-01-08)

Researchers develop material capable of being invisible or reflective
Scientists have proposed a new metamaterial capable of changing its optical properties without any mechanical input. This development could result in a significant improvement in the reliability of complex optical devices while making them cheaper to manufacture. (2020-05-20)

UD chemist Svilen Bobev receives ACA Early Career Award
Svilen Bobev, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Delaware, has been selected to receive the 2009 Margaret C. Etter Early Career Award from the American Crystallographic Association. The nonprofit scientific association has more than 2,200 members in over 60 countries. (2008-10-10)

The odor of stones
A recent study by Chemists of the University Jena (Germany) published in the current issue of 'Nature Communications' demonstrates that diatoms are able to trace silicate minerals in the water. Moreover, they can even move actively to areas where the concentration of silicates is especially high (DOI: 10.1038/ncomms10540). (2016-02-04)

An optical coating like no other
The technology, based on Fano resonance, results in a coating that fully reflects only a very narrow wavelength. The technology could improve the effectiveness of devices that use hybrid thermal-electric power generation as a solar energy option. (2021-02-04)

Deducing the properties of a new form of diamond
Earlier this year, amorphous diamond was synthesized for the first time using a technique involving high pressures, moderately high temperatures and a tiny amount of glassy carbon as starting material. A father-son team at Clemson University has now successfully calculated a number of basic physical properties for this new substance, including elastic constants and related quantities. The results are reported this week in Applied Physics Letters. (2017-11-30)

A new class of materials could realize quantum computers
Scientists at EPFL and PSI have discovered a new class of materials that can prove ideal for the implementation of spintronics. (2016-10-21)

New 'nanotweezers' open door to innovations in medicine, mobile tech
It's difficult to conceptualize a world where humans could casually manipulate nanoscale objects at will or even control their own biological matter at a cellular level with light. But that is precisely what Yuebing Zheng, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, is working toward with his 'nanotweezers' -- a new tool for handling nanoparticles using light that could create opportunities for innovations in nanotechnology and individual health monitoring.

Nanoparticles could aid biohazard detection, computer industry
A Purdue University research team has found a rapid and cost-effective method of forming tiny particles of high-purity metals on the surface of advanced semiconductor materials. They also have learned how to use these nanoparticles as a bridge to connect the chips with organic molecules, which could lead to advances in the war on terrorism. (2002-12-11)

Telecom research leads to solar cell breakthrough
Researchers in the department of engineering physics at McMaster are collaborating with ARISE Technologies and the Ontario Centres of Excellence to apply developments in multi-junction semiconductor technology undertaken for thee telecommunication industry to developing high-efficiency of solar cells.
