materialsWafer Scale Hexagonal Boron Nitride Films Have Been Created

No Comments
Dongguk University and other Korean researchers have made wafer scale hexagonal boron nitride films with a nearly perfect single-crystalline structure. The film self-assembles on top of liquid gold. Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) is also called white graphite. They can be …

No Comments
The Clean Energy Research Foundation has discovered a method of manufacturing the worlds strongest and toughest materials. Fused double-walled carbon nanotube (DWNT) fibers were made with a strength of a 700 GPa Young’s modulus. This strength was seen in prior …

3d3D Atomic Quantum Chips and Advance to Eventual Large Scale Quantum Tech

No Comments
Australia’s New South Wales scientists have adapted single atom technology to build 3D silicon quantum chips – with precise interlayer alignment and highly accurate measurement of spin states. The 3D architecture is considered a major step in the development of …

Yuebing Zheng, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, is working toward with his “nanotweezers” — a new tool for handling nanoparticles using light that could create opportunities for innovations in nanotechnology and individual health …

materialsAtomic lattice crystal seamlessly sewn together to make atomically thin fabrics

No Comments
Scientists with the University of Chicago and Cornell University revealed a technique to “sew” two patches of crystals seamlessly together at the atomic level to create atomically-thin fabrics. The team wanted to do this by stitching different fabric-like, three-atom-thick crystals. …
