U.S. researchers say they have developed a technique using a silicon crystal as a type of nanoscale vice to squeeze another crystal into a more useful shape. The scientists led by Professor Darrell Schlom of Cornell University and Joseph Woicik of the National Institute of Standards and Technology said their accomplishment might lead to development of a new class of electronic devices that remember their last state even after power is turned off. Computers that could switch on instantly...

Many advanced material fabrication techniques use multi-step processes that can be environmentally stressing, energy-consuming and have high-costs. In an article published in AZojomo* researchers have described a novel method called "Localized Hydrothermal Technique" for growing coatings of barium titanate or other complex oxides on titanium. In this method, thin films grow on transition metal substrates by Joule heating of the substrate while it is immersed in an aqueous alkali-earth...
