Discovery advances the understanding of structural defects and their topological properties
While a piece of paper is usually flat and floppy, the same piece of paper crumpled into a wad is stiff and round. This demonstrates that scrunching changes the texture and behavior of precisely the same material -- paper. A new Tel Aviv University study shows how induced defects in metamaterials ...
Researchers at Hebrew University combine quantum dot 'atoms' and create new 'molecules'
Are you ready for the future? Back in 1869, Russia's Dmitri Mendeleev began to classify the elements according to their chemical properties, giving rise to the Periodical Table of Elements. "I saw in a dream a table where all elements fell into place as required. Awakening, I immediately wrote it ...
