Can graphene be used as a nanoscopic ruler over a wide range of distances?
‘Origami’ makes diversified metamaterials with bizarre properties
The optical rectenna: where Maxwell meets Einstein
Novel physics-based experimental techniques and concepts from statistical mechanics may help understand why living cells use up precious energy to constantly ‘jiggle’ and ‘twitch’ their membranes.
“We hope cold plasma could become a clinical anti-cancer tool in the near future, and we are ready to accelerate such a process.”
A robust method to nucleate well-centered bubbles in patterned dots
A potential tool for regenerative medicine?
Perovskite solar cells have shaken up the solar cell research community. Never before has a new kind of material reached efficiencies that are competitive with those of the industry standard, silicon, as quickly as the perovskites have. But, what is a perovskite?
Using rows of small liquid-metal resonators, this new metamaterial can cloak objects from radar detection.
As we reported last week, in their recent paper in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, authors Dr Javier Pinto et al presented this week’s Image of the Week: an SEM micrograph of open dodecahedral pores with high connectivity in… Read More ›
“One teacher taught me the importance of hard work, perseverance and persistence whereas another taught me to be humble, simple, kind and generous to others. The influence of both of these on me was significant and without their help, I would be tilling the land in India.”
An interconnected structure, which water can easily flow through, is key to creating a highly effective mechanical sponge for clearing oil spills.
