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

 Study finds iron-rich enamel protects, but doesn't color, rodents' orange-brown incisors  - Chattering squirrels, charming coypus, and tail-slapping beavers—along with some other rodents—have orange-brown front teeth. Researchers have published high-resolution images of rodent incisors in ACS Nano, providing ...

 Quantum electronics: Charge travels like light in bilayer graphene  - 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 ...

 Two-dimensional nanomaterial sets expansion record  - 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 ...

 Silver-based micromotors that eliminate bacteria can move freely in aqueous media  - Researchers at ICIQ in Tarragona have developed a simple technique to produce microscopic crystals that activate in the presence of light, releasing silver ions with antimicrobial activity.

 Scientists develop nanosilver-impregnated silk suture against surgical site infection  - In recent years, the adherence of microorganisms to surfaces or coatings has created major health risks to humans. Among these, microbial attachment and growth on surgical suture lines accounts for more than 20% of health-related ...

 Real-time detection of infectious disease viruses by searching for molecular fingerprinting  - A research team has engineered a "broadband nanogap gold spectroscopic sensor" using a flexible material capable of bending to create a controlled gap. With the developed technology, it is possible to rapidly test various ...

 Ultra-resilient flexible sensors break new ground in pressure detection  - In recent advancements, flexible pressure sensors have been developed to mimic human skin's sensitivity, significantly benefiting fields like interactive technologies, health monitoring, and robotics. These innovations leverage ...

 A single atom layer of gold—researchers create goldene  - For the first time, scientists have managed to create sheets of gold only a single atom layer thick. The material has been termed goldene. According to researchers from Linköping University, Sweden, this has given the gold ...
