Fractional quantum Hall effect: Experimental progress and quantum computing applications


The Hall effect, discovered in 1879, is observable when a Hall voltage perpendicular to the current is produced across a conductor under a magnetic field. Although the Hall effect was discovered in a sheet of gold leaf by Edwin Hall, this effect does not require a two-dimensional condition.A ...


Human enamel mimic restores tooth whiteness


Research describes a new method for non-abrasive teeth whitening that uses a naturally-occurring mineral contained in a polymer film. Current methods for maintaining a gleaming white smile include replacing the crowns of discoloured teeth or using chemical abrasives such as hydrogen peroxide to ...


Researchers show applied electric field can significantly improve hydrogen storage properties


An international team of researchers has identified a new theoretical approach that may one day make the synthesis of hydrogen fuel storage materials less complicated and improve the thermodynamics and reversibility of the system. Many researchers have their sights set on hydrogen as an ...


Carbon Nanotube Sponges: Tough Water-Repellent Sponges Absorb Oils and Solvents up to 180 Times Their Own Weight


Scientists have invented a carbon-based sponge that can soak up organic pollutants, such as oils and solvents, from the surface of water. No water is absorbed and the sponge can then be wrung out and reused, like an ordinary household sponge. Absorbing up to 180 times its own weight in organic ...


Researchers design new graphene-based, nano-material with magnetic properties

A possible pathway to simply synthesize ferromagnetic graphene


An international team of researchers has designed a new graphite-based, magnetic nano-material that acts as a semiconductor and could help material scientists create the next generation of electronic devices like microchips. The team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University; Peking ...


Photoelectric switch


A collaboration of scientists from various Beijing institutes, have made a pH-switchable, DNA-quantum dot hybrid that can also generate a photocurrent depending on the pH, allowing DNA to change conformation from a quadruplex to a double strand. Zhiyong Tang, Dongsheng Liu and colleagues from ...
