Physicists create tunable superconductivity in twisted graphene 'nanosandwich'

Structure may reveal conditions needed for high-temperature superconductivity

04-Feb-2021

When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy. This "magic-angle" transformation in bilayer graphene was observed ...

Wool-like material can remember and change shape

Material could be used in smart textiles, medical devices and more

09-Sep-2020

As anyone who has ever straightened their hair knows, water is the enemy. Hair painstakingly straightened by heat will bounce back into curls the minute it touches water. Why? Because hair has shape memory. Its material properties allow it to change shape in response to certain stimuli and return ...
