Surface Rising's U.S.
By combining two frontier technologies, spintronics and straintronics, a team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University has devised perhaps the world's most miserly integrated circuit.
Two Lehigh physicists have developed an imaging technique that makes it possible to directly observe light-emitting excitons as they diffuse in a new material that is being explored for its extraordinary electronic properties.
Nature knows two opposite types of solids: one that emerges upon compression from a liquid and a second that appears if the pressure on a liquid is reduced.
Physicists at Hamburg and Kiel University and the Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich have found for the first time a regular lattice of magnetic skyrmions â€“ cycloidal vortex spin structures of exceptional stability â€“ on a surface.
A new source of very cold electrons will improve the quality and speed of nanoimaging for drug and materials development, to a trillionth of a second.
Physicists at Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich and the universities of Kiel and Hamburg are the first to discover a regular lattice of stable magnetic skyrmions â€“ radial spiral structures made up of atomic-scale spins â€“ on a surface instead of in bulk materials.
Although high-temperature superconductors are widely used in technologies such as MRI machines, explaining the unusual properties of these materials remains an unsolved problem for theoretical physicists.
New multiferroic mechanism could lead to next-generation memory and sensing devices.
