Atom-by-atom: Imaging structural transformations in 2D materials

 Nanotechnology News
 17 April 2024
Silicon-based electronics are approaching their physical limitations and new materials are needed to keep up with current technological demands. Two-dimensional (2D) materials have a rich array of properties, including superconductivity and magnetism, and are promising candidates for use in...

Two-dimensional nanomaterial sets expansion record

 Nanotechnology News
 17 April 2024
It is a common hack to stretch a balloon out to make it easier to inflate. When the balloon stretches, the width crosswise shrinks to the size of a string. Noah Stocek, a Ph.D. student collaborating with Western physicist Giovanni Fanchini, has developed a new nanomaterial that demonstrates the...

Cooler transformers could help electric grid

 Nanotechnology News

Simulations on the Stampede2 supercomputer of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are helping scientists engineer solutions to overheating of grid transformers -- a critical component of the electric grid....

Quantum electronics: Charge travels like light in bilayer graphene

 Nanotechnology News
 16 April 2024
An international research team led by the University of Göttingen has demonstrated experimentally that electrons in naturally occurring double-layer graphene move like particles without any mass, in the same way that light travels. Furthermore, they have shown that the current can be "switched" on...
