Triangular Honeycombs: Physicists design novel quantum material

Topological quantum materials with distinctive advantages

16-Sep-2021

Researchers from the Würzburg-Dresden Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat–Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter – have conceived and realized a new quantum material: "Indenene". Consisting of a single layer of the chemical element Indium, indenene enriches the family of the so-called topological ...

Using liquid metal to turn motion into electricity – even underwater

To make electricity, just squish it, twist it, or stretch it

02-Sep-2021

Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a soft, stretchable device that converts movement into electricity and works in both dry and wet environments. “Mechanical energy – such as the kinetic energy of wind, waves, body movement and vibrations from motors – is abundant,” says ...

Rare metals from e-waste

What happens to our ressources?

14-Jan-2019

This year, beautifully wrapped laptops, mobile phones or even new TV sets lay under numerous Christmas trees. They are enthusiastically put into use – and the old electronic devices are disposed of. The e-waste contains resources such as neodymium, indium and gold. What happens to the valuable ...

A faster and more efficient way to process information

15-May-2018

University of Waterloo chemists have found a much faster and more efficient way to store and process information by expanding the limitations of how the flow of electricity can be used and managed. In a recently released study, the chemists discovered that light can induce magnetization in ...

A new structure family of oxide-ion conductors 'SrYbInO4'

27-Oct-2017

Because some A2BO4-based materials such as (Pr,La)2(Ni,Cu,Ga)O4+δ exhibit high oxide-ion conductivity, scientists at Tokyo Tech have been exploring new structure families of ABCO4-based materials as BaRInO4, where R represents a rare earth element. Here, A, B, and C are cations located at ...

Breakthrough on brittle smart phone screens

27-Oct-2017

Scientists at the University of Sussex may have found a solution to the long-standing problem of brittle smart phone screens. Professor Alan Dalton and his team have developed a new way to make smart phone touch screens that are cheaper, less brittle, and more environmentally friendly. On top of ...

Graphene and other carbon nanomaterials can replace scarce metals

20-Sep-2017

Scarce metals are found in a wide range of everyday objects around us. They are complicated to extract, difficult to recycle and so rare that several of them have become “conflict minerals” which can promote conflicts and oppression. A survey at Chalmers University of Technology now shows that ...

Artificial topological matter opens new research directions

06-Apr-2017

An international team of researchers have created a new structure that allows the tuning of topological properties in such a way as to turn on or off these unique behaviors. The structure could open up possibilities for new explorations into the properties of topological states of matter. "This ...

A new way to control oxygen for electronic properties

14-Jun-2016

Hotel managers and materials scientists have a lot in common--they both need to find a way to control properties by managing vacancies. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory found they could use a small electric current to introduce oxygen voids, or vacancies, ...
