Creating Nanowires Only Three Atoms Wide With An Electron Beam
2014-04-28 03:12:14

David Salisbury, Vanderbilt University Junhao Lin, a Vanderbilt University Ph.D. student and visiting scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has found a way to use a finely focused beam of electrons to create some of the smallest wires ever made. The flexible metallic wires are only three atoms wide: One thousandth the width of the microscopic wires used to connect the transistors in today's integrated circuits. Lin's achievement is described in an article published online...

Just a few grams of the new substance are enough to tag the entire olive oil production of Italy. If counterfeiting were suspected, the particles added at the place of origin could be extracted from the oil and analysed, enabling a definitive identification of the producer. "The method is equivalent to a label that cannot be removed," says Robert Grass, lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich. The worldwide need for anti-counterfeiting labels for food...

How Can Graphene Sheets Be Utilized In Real-world Devices?
2014-04-25 03:15:43

National Science Foundation Fundamental research in phonon scattering helps researchers design graphene materials for applications Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and...

Graphene-Based Spaser Could Lead To Printable Smartphones
2014-04-25 04:23:53

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new report in the journal ACS Nano, a team of Australian engineers have modelled a kind of laser called a “spaser” that would allow for the creation of smartphones so small and flexible – they could be printed on a t-shirt. Simply put, spasers are nanoscale lasers that emit a beam of light via the vibration of free electrons, as opposed to the relatively space-consuming beam of a traditional laser. While spasers,...

Kitchen Science: Making Graphene In A Blender
2014-04-23 12:24:52

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Graphene is a form of electrically conductive carbon being hailed as a miracle material capable of revolutionizing everything from high-end electronics to biological engineering. A new study from a large team of British and Irish researchers has described a recipe for graphene that only requires a few common household materials and a kitchen blender. The study, which was published in the journal Nature Materials, basically tacked on...
