New twists (and bends) in LCD research

20-Apr-2016

Liquid crystals, discovered more than 125 years ago, are at work behind the screens of TV and computer monitors, clocks, watches and most other electronics displays, and scientists are still discovering new twists--and bends--in their molecular makeup. Liquid crystals are an exotic state of ...

Team devises new technique to probe 'noise' in quantum computing

20-Apr-2016

Dartmouth College and Griffith University researchers have devised a new way to "sense" and control external noise in quantum computing. Quantum computing may revolutionize information processing by providing a means to solve problems too complex for traditional computers, with applications in ...

New paper examines hydrogen at high pressure

19-Apr-2016

Hydrogen is the most abundant element found in the universe, making up nearly three-quarters of all matter. Despite its prevalence, questions about the element remain. In a new paper published by Nature Communications, a team of researchers, including scientists from Lawrence Livermore National ...

New technique could improve detection of concealed nuclear materials

19-Apr-2016

Researchers have demonstrated proof of concept for a novel low-energy nuclear reaction imaging technique designed to detect the presence of "special nuclear materials" -- weapons-grade uranium and plutonium -- in cargo containers arriving at U.S. ports. The method relies on a combination of ...

In these microbes, iron works like oxygen

18-Apr-2016

A pair of papers from a UW-Madison geoscience lab shed light on a curious group of bacteria that use iron in much the same way that animals use oxygen: to soak up electrons during biochemical reactions. When organisms -- whether bacteria or animal -- oxidize carbohydrates, electrons must go ...

‘Odd couple’ monolayer semiconductors align to advance optoelectronics

18-Apr-2016

Epitaxy, or growing crystalline film layers that are templated by a crystalline substrate, is a mainstay of manufacturing transistors and semiconductors. If the material in one deposited layer is the same as the material in the next layer, it can be energetically favorable for strong bonds to ...

First-ever videos show how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale and speed of sound

18-Apr-2016

Using a state-of-the-art ultrafast electron microscope, University of Minnesota researchers have recorded the first-ever videos showing how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale traveling at the speed of sound. The research, published today in Nature Communications, provides unprecedented ...
