    Researchers compute unprecedented values for spin lifetime anisotropy in graphene

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Researchers of the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, led by ICREA Prof. Stephan Roche, have published another paper on spin, this time reporting numerical simulations for spin relaxation in graphene/TMDC heterostructures. Published … [...]

    New Plasmonic Device to Help the Internet Keep Growing and Getting Faster

    Original @ Singularity Hub The volume of data shuttled around the internet is growing unchecked, placing ever greater burdens on our communication infrastructure. But a new device that takes advantage of the unusual properties of plasmons could tackle the problem by allowing data speeds in the hundreds of gigabits. The latest forecast by networking giant Cisco predicts that internet […] [...]

    Using polymeric membranes to clean up industrial separations

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories There are scores of promising technologies under development that can reduce energy consumption or capture carbon in fields including biotech, computer science, nanotechnology, materials science, and more. Not all will prove feasible, but with a little… [...]

    Mapping connections of single neurons using a holographic light beam

    Original @ KurzweilAI » News Researchers at MIT and Paris Descartes University have developed a technique for precisely mapping connections of individual neurons for the first time by triggering them with holographic laser light. The technique is based on optogenetics (using light to stimulate or silence light-sensitive genetically modified protein molecules called “opsins” that are embedded in specific neurons). Current [...] [...]

    A new nano-sized hexameric molecular capsule

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Halonium ions used in this study, are well-known reaction intermediates and halogenating reagents in synthesis, but now they have been used as robust and stable structural units in molecular nanotechnology. [...]

    New technology makes oak wilt detection faster, more affordable

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Oak wilt fungus is another invasive plant pathogen that often goes unnoticed, until it’s too late. Not anymore. New technology developed by University of Minnesota College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) Assistant Professor … [...]

    Subset of carbon nanotubes poses cancer risk similar to asbestos in mice

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Nanotechnology, the science of developing materials containing very small fibers, is having a growing influence on daily life. Now researchers have shown for the first time in mice that long and thin nanomaterials called carbon nanotubes may have the s… [...]

    Making glass invisible—a nanoscience-based disappearing act

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories If you have ever watched television in anything but total darkness, used a computer while sitting underneath overhead lighting or near a window, or taken a photo outside on a sunny day with your smartphone, you have experienced a major nuisance of mode… [...]
