For the last century, the concept of crystals has been a mainstay of solid-state physics. Crystals are paragons of order; crystalline materials are...
Scientists have tak­en a key step to­ward us­ing fu­sion, the pro­cess that pow­ers the Sun, to pro­duce en­er­gy, ac­cord­ing to a re­port to ap­...
If you thought Boeing 747s weren’t useful for understanding how stars are formed, you don’t know about SOFIA. Officially known as the Stratospheric...
One of the hottest materials in condensed matter research today is graphene. Graphene had an unlikely start: it began with researchers messing...
For the ever-shrinking transistor, there may be a new game in town. Cornell researchers have demonstrated promising electronic performance from a...
Lasers have a fixed place in many fields of application. Yet, there are still wavelengths for which either no systems exist, or at best only large...
If you want to send light on a trip through optical fibres with as little loss as possible, you should opt for infrared light, as is the case, for...
Virtual reality is no longer the expensive, cumbersome exercise it once was. Google Cardboard, launched at last week’s Google I/O conference, is a no...
New record for a trapped field in a superconductor, beating a record that has stood for more than a decade, could herald the arrival of materials in...
Carbon nanotubes "unzipped" into graphene nanoribbons by a chemical process invented at Rice University are finding use in all kinds of projects, but...
