A highly light-absorbent and tunable material

New approach to developing optoelectronic devices

13-Aug-2020

By layering different two-dimensional materials, physicists at the University of Basel have created a novel structure with the ability to absorb almost all light of a selected wavelength. The achievement relies on a double layer of molybdenum disulfide. The new structure’s particular properties ...

Behind the veil of nothingness

International team of scientists controls custom quantum vacua much faster than light

13-Aug-2020

An international research team from Germany and France has created structures in which light fields interact with electrons so strongly that the quantum vacuum itself is significantly altered. Using extremely short bursts of light, they interrupted this coupling much faster than the timescale of ...

Seeing chemical reactions with music

Audible sound enables chemical coloring and the coexistence of different chemical reactions in a solution

12-Aug-2020

Albert Einstein once said, "I see my life in terms of music." Perhaps inspired by his words, scientists at the Center for Self-assembly and Complexity (CSC), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, South Korea) now see chemical reactions in the presence of music. The IBS research team has ...

From nanocellulose to gold

Soft and biocompatible materials for optical, catalytic, electrical and biomedical applications

12-Aug-2020

When nanocellulose is combined with various types of metal nanoparticles, materials are formed with many new and exciting properties. They may be antibacterial, change colour under pressure, or convert light to heat. "To put it simply, we make gold from nanocellulose", says Daniel Aili, associate ...
