Collaboration could lead to biodegradable computer chips

29-May-2015

Portable electronics - typically made of non-renewable, non-biodegradable and potentially toxic materials - are discarded at an alarming rate in consumers' pursuit of the next best electronic gadget. In an effort to alleviate the environmental burden of electronic devices, a team of University of ...

Linking superconductivity and structure

29-May-2015

Superconductivity is a rare physical state in which matter is able to conduct electricity - maintain a flow of electrons - without any resistance. It can only be found in certain materials, and even then it can only be achieved under controlled conditions of low temperatures and high pressures. ...

One step closer to a single-molecule device

28-May-2015

Under the direction of Latha Venkataraman, associate professor of applied physics at Columbia Engineering, researchers have designed a new technique to create a single-molecule diode, and, in doing so, they have developed molecular diodes that perform 50 times better than all prior designs. ...

Researchers develop new way to manufacture nanofibers

27-May-2015

Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed an inexpensive way to manufacture extraordinarily thin polymer strings commonly known as nanofibers. These polymers can be made from natural materials like proteins or from human-made substances to make plastic, rubber or fiber, including ...

Defects can 'Hulk-up' materials

26-May-2015

In the story of the Marvel Universe superhero known as the Hulk, exposure to gamma radiation transforms scientist Bruce Banner into a far more powerful version of himself. In a study at Berkeley Lab, exposure to alpha-particle radiation has been shown to transform certain thermoelectric materials ...

Tunable liquid metal antennas

Using electrochemistry, researchers have created a reconfigurable, voltage-controlled liquid metal antenna

21-May-2015

Researchers have held tremendous interest in liquid metal electronics for many years, but a significant and unfortunate drawback slowing the advance of such devices is that they tend to require external pumps that can't be easily integrated into electronic systems.So a team of North Carolina ...

Nature inspires first artificial molecular pump

Simple design mimics pumping mechanism of life-sustaining proteins found in living cells

21-May-2015

Using nature for inspiration, a team of Northwestern University scientists is the first to develop an entirely artificial molecular pump, in which molecules pump other molecules. This tiny machine is no small feat. The pump one day might be used to power other molecular machines, such as ...

New nanomaterials inspired by bird feathers play with light to create color

Wide range of pure colors created by nanoscale arrangement of synthetic melanin

19-May-2015

Inspired by the way iridescent bird feathers play with light, scientists have created thin films of material in a wide range of pure colors - from red to green - with hues determined by physical structure rather than pigments.Structural color arises from the interaction of light with materials ...
