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 ...

Researchers build new fermion microscope

Instrument freezes and images 1,000 individual fermionic atoms at once

19-May-2015

Fermions are the building blocks of matter, interacting in a multitude of permutations to give rise to the elements of the periodic table. Without fermions, the physical world would not exist.Examples of fermions are electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, and atoms consisting of an odd number of ...

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 ...

Probing iron chemistry in the deep mantle

18-May-2015

Carbonates are a group of minerals that contain the carbonate ion (CO32-) and a metal, such as iron or magnesium. Carbonates are important constituents of marine sediments and are heavily involved in the planet's deep carbon cycle, primarily due to oceanic crust sinking into the mantle, a process ...
