    A ductile steel shows its strength

    Metallurgy Many industrial applications require materials to have high strength while remaining pliable, or ductile. However, the microstructure that increases strength tends to reduce ductility. He et al. used a processing mechanism to create a “forest” of line defects in manganese steel. This more

    Manipulating ultracold matter

    Atoms are dependably uniform—you would have a hard time, for instance, telling one rubidium atom from another. Many atomic properties have been measured to extraordinary precision: The frequency of an electronic transition in a cesium atom, for example, is used to define the unit of time. With more

    Trapped in orbit

    In 2018, NASA's Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) will rocket to the International Space Station. There, the $70 million device will chill clouds of atoms to less than a billionth of a degree above absolute zero to create Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs), in which the atoms shed their individual i ... more

    It's Not an Illusion

    Researchers have developed a compound that can transform near-infrared light into broadband white-light, offering a cheap, efficient means to produce visible light. The emitted light is also exceedingly directional, a desirable quality for devices like microscopes that require high spatial ... more
