Theorists Predict New Single-Layer Material Could Go Beyond Graphene, Conducting Electricity with 100 Percent Efficiency at Room Temperature

2013-11-21 12:38:50

A University at Buffalo-led research team has developed a technique for “seeing through” a stack of graphene sheets to identify and describe the electronic properties of each individual sheet — even when the sheets are covering each other up.

Protecting Systems From Heat May Rely On Nano-Magnetic Fields
2013-11-21 08:30:42

Generally, cooling systems rely on water pumped through pipes to remove unwanted heat. A research team from MIT and the University of Newcastle in Australia has discovered a method for enhancing heat transfer in such systems using magnetic fields.


Word of the Day
pawl
  • A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
The word 'pawl' probably comes from a Latin word meaning 'stake'.
