Light-induced twisting of Weyl nodes switches on giant electron current

Tue, 2021-01-19 22:50
Scientists have discovered a new light-induced switch that twists the crystal lattice of the material, switching on a giant electron current that appears to be nearly dissipationless.

Conductive nature in crystal structures revealed at magnification of 10 million times

Sat, 2021-01-16 02:23
In groundbreaking materials research, a team has made a discovery that blends the best of two sought-after qualities for touchscreens and smart windows -- transparency and conductivity.

Pivotal discovery in quantum and classical information processing

Thu, 2021-01-14 01:14
Researchers have achieved, for the first time, electronically adjustable interactions between microwaves and a phenomenon in certain magnetic materials called spin waves. This could have application in quantum and classical information processing.

Nanosheet-based electronics could be one drop away

Tue, 2021-01-12 21:31
A surprisingly simple method improves 'drop casting' fabrication of tiled nanosheets that could be used in next-generation electronic devices. All you need is a pipette and a hotplate.

New one-step process for creating self-assembled metamaterials

Tue, 2021-01-12 00:29
A team has discovered a groundbreaking one-step process for creating materials with unique properties, called metamaterials.

Using light to revolutionize artificial intelligence

Tue, 2021-01-12 00:28
An international team of researchers, including Professor Roberto Morandotti of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), just introduced a new photonic processor that could revolutionize artificial intelligence, as reported by the prestigious journal Nature.

'Flashing' new 2D materials

Tue, 2021-01-12 00:28
Scientists extend their technique to produce graphene in a flash to tailor the properties of 2D dichalcogenides, quickly turning them into metastable metallics for electronic and optical applications.

Engineers create hybrid chips with processors and memory to run AI on battery-powered devices

Mon, 2021-01-11 21:51
Transactions between processors and memory can consume 95 percent of the energy needed to do machine learning and AI, which severely limits battery life. A team of engineers has designed a system that can run AI tasks faster, and with less energy, by harnessing eight hybrid chips, each with its own data processor built right next to its own memory storage.

A charge-density-wave topological semimetal

Mon, 2021-01-11 20:13
A novel material has been discovered that is characterised by the coupling of a charge density wave with the topology of the electronic structure.

Engineers find antioxidants improve nanoscale visualization of polymers

Fri, 2021-01-08 19:11
Reactive molecules, such as free radicals, can be produced in the body after exposure to certain environments or substances and go on to cause cell damage. Antioxidants can minimize this damage by interacting with the radicals before they affect cells.

Old silicon learns new tricks

Thu, 2021-01-07 00:00
Researchers fabricated regular arrays of iron-coated silicon crystals that are atomically smooth. The defect-free pyramidal composition of the crystals impart magnetic properties that will enhance the functionality of 3D spintronics and other technologies.

A better pen-and-ink system for drawing flexible circuits

Thu, 2021-01-07 00:00
Conductive ink is a great tool for printing flexible electronic circuits on surfaces. But these inks can be costly, they do not work on some materials, and devices to apply them can plug up. Now, scientists report that they have developed inexpensive conductive inks for clog-free ballpoint pens that can allow users to 'write' circuits almost anywhere -- even on human skin.
