Latest Charge carriers Stories
Physicists have identified the "quantum glue" that underlies a promising type of superconductivity -- a crucial step towards the creation of energy superhighways that conduct electricity without current loss.
Ultrafast X-ray laser research led by Kansas State University has provided scientists with a snapshot of a fundamental molecular phenomenon.
Scientists seeking to understand the intricacies of high-temperature superconductivity—the ability of certain materials to carry electrical current with no energy loss—have been particularly puzzled by a mysterious phase that emerges as charge carriers are added that appears to compete with superconductivity.
JILA physicists used an ultrafast laser and help from German theorists to discover a new semiconductor quasiparticle—a handful of smaller particles that briefly condense into a liquid-like droplet.
Research hints that nanodevices in microcircuits can protect themselves from heat generation; could boost computing power without large-scale changes to electronics
Just a single foreign atom located in the vicinity of a molecule can change spatial arrangement of its atoms.
Classical and high-temperature superconductors differ hugely in the value of the critical temperatures at which they lose all electrical resistance.
Astronomers have long wondered exactly what the enigmatic jets given off by black holes are made of. Now, an international team of scientists, writing in the journal Nature, has apparently solved the mystery and discovered the composition of those high-speed beams of matter.
This video and article explain how sudden exercise releases free radicals (loose electrons) in the body and how those electrons damage organs, tissues and can cause death.
Imagine if the "information superhighway" had HOV lanes so that data could be stored, processed and disseminated many times faster than possible with today's electronics.
