  • Atoms placed precisely in silicon can act as quantum simulator

    In a proof-of-principle experiment, researchers at UNSW Australia have demonstrated that a small group of individual atoms placed very precisely in silicon can act as a quantum simulator, mimicking nature - in this case, the weird quantum interactions of electrons in materials. The publication of th more

  • Cost-effective production of hydrogen from natural resources

    Owing to their unbeatable electro-optical properties and compatibility with existing silicon technology, silicon nanosheets (SiNSs) are one of most exciting recent discoveries. They have been the most promising candidate for use in various applications, such as in the process of manufacturing semico more

  • Replacement for silicon devices looms big with ORNL discovery

    Two-dimensional electronic devices could inch closer to their ultimate promise of low power, high efficiency and mechanical flexibility with a processing technique developed at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. A team led by Olga Ovchinnikova of ORNL’s Center for Nanophase Ma more

  • The Best Measurement

    It is now more than 30 years since attempts started to find a way of defining the kilogram based on an atomic constant or a fundamental physical constant. Since then, two methods have advanced sufficiently far to make it likely that there will be a new definition within the coming years, namely the Watt balance ­experiment for determination of Planck‘s constant h and the Avogadro experiment for determining the ­Avogadro Constant NA. more
