New Low-Cost Technique Converts Bulk Alloys to Oxide Nanowires

fig1-small.jpg

A simple technique for producing oxide nanowires directly from bulk materials could dramatically lower the cost of producing the one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures. That could open the door for a broad range of uses in lightweight structural composites, advanced sensors, electronic devices – and thermally-stable and strong battery membranes able to withstand temperatures of more than 1,000 degrees Celsius.

Chemists Cook Up New Nanomaterial and Imaging Method

A team of chemists led by Northwestern University’s William Dichtel has cooked up something big: The scientists created an entirely new type of nanomaterial and watched it form in real time — a chemistry first.“Our work sets the stage for researchers interested in studying the fundamental properties of interesting materials and applied systems, such as solar cells, batteries, sensors, paints and drug delivery systems,” said Dichtel, the Robert L.

Fast Track Control Accelerates Switching of Quantum Bits

Quantum_bit_image_940x823.jpg

An international collaboration among physicists at the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, McGill University and the University of Konstanz recently demonstrated a new framework for faster control of a quantum bit—the basic unit of information in yet-to-be created quantum computers—in findings published online Nov. 28 in Nature Physics. Their experiments on a single electron in a diamond chip could create quantum devices less prone to errors when operated at high speeds.

Light Strikes Gold

BER-2017-01-a-lrg.jpg

While scientists have used light to sculpt tiny crystals to do big jobs since 2001, they haven't been able to apply the process to gold—until now. Scientists created a strategy that enables synthesis of desirable gold crystals with potential for industry or medical uses.

New Active Filaments Mimic Biology to Transport Nano-Cargo

Inspired by micro-scale motions of nature, a group of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras and the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, in Chennai, India, has developed a new design for transporting colloidal particles, tiny cargo suspended in substances such as fluids or gels, more rapidly than is currently possible by diffusion.

Zeroing in on the True Nature of Fluids Within Nanocapillaries

JCP-Morineau-core-shell-structure.png

Shrinking the investigation of objects to the nanometer scale often reveals new properties of matter that have no equivalent for their bulk analysis. This phenomenon is motivating studies of nanomaterials which can reveal fascinating new phenomena. It inspired researchers to explore the extent of knowledge about fundamental properties of fluids, which demands reconsideration with the increasing use of fluids in the decreasing sizes of new devices, where their flow is confined into ever-smaller capillary tubes.

Magnetic Discovery Could Be Tip of the “Ice”Berg

BES-2016-11-j-lrg.jpg

A new material, called "rewritable magnetic charge ice," has an unprecedented degree of control over local magnetic fields. This material has write-read-erase capabilities at room temperature, which may have implications for new computing technologies.
