Scientists measure speedy electrons in silicon

Attosecond laser provides first 'movie' of fast electrons jumping band-gap of semiconductor

22-Dec-2014

The entire semiconductor industry, not to mention Silicon Valley, is built on the propensity of electrons in silicon to get kicked out of their atomic shells and become free. These mobile electrons are routed and switched though transistors, carrying the digital information that characterizes our ...

The simplest element: Turning hydrogen into 'graphene'

18-Dec-2014

New work from Carnegie's Ivan Naumov and Russell Hemley delves into the chemistry underlying some surprising recent observations about hydrogen, and reveals remarkable parallels between hydrogen and graphene under extreme pressures. Their work is the cover story in the December issue of Accounts ...

Carbon-trapping 'sponges' can cut greenhouse gases

18-Dec-2014

In the fight against global warming, carbon capture - chemically trapping carbon dioxide before it releases into the atmosphere - is gaining momentum, but standard methods are plagued by toxicity, corrosiveness and inefficiency. Using a bag of chemistry tricks, Cornell materials scientists have ...

Penn researchers show commonalities in how different glassy materials fail

11-Dec-2014

Glass is mysterious. It is a broad class of materials that extends well beyond the everyday window pane, but one thing that these disparate glasses seem to have in common is that they have nothing in common when it comes to their internal structures, especially in contrast with highly ordered and ...
