This sensitive strain sensor could detect the weight of a feather

Physicists have created the most sensitive strain sensor ever made, capable of detecting a feather's touch. The sensor, developed by the Materials Physics Group at...

Graphene and 2D materials could move electronics beyond Moore’s Law

Scientists have published a new review on a field of computer device development known as spintronics, which could see graphene used as building block...

Our Milk Way’s halo is at least 10 times hotter than previously thought

The halo that surrounds our own Milky Way galaxy is much hotter than scientists once believed - and it may not be unique among...

New coatings for shoe bottoms could help prevent falls on slick surfaces

Inspired by the Japanese art of paper cutting, MIT engineers have designed a friction-boosting material that could be used to coat the bottom of...

Scientists solve decades-old mystery of missing matter in the universe

Astronomers have used mysterious fast radio bursts to solve a decades-old mystery of “missing matter,” material long predicted to exist in the universe but...

New infrared telescope could spot cosmic hidden treasures

A new infrared telescope, to be designed and built by astronomers at The Australian National University (ANU), will monitor the entire southern sky in...

A new law in laser physics could make eye surgery simpler

Scientists have developed a new type of laser that can deliver high amounts of energy in very short bursts of time, with potential applications...

Scientists create world’s best quantum bits

A team of researchers at UCLA has set a new record for preparing and measuring the quantum bits, or qubits, inside of a quantum...

Mercury’s 750°F heat may help it make its own ice

It is already hard to believe that there is ice on Mercury, where daytime temperatures reach 400 degrees Celsius, or 750 degrees Fahrenheit. Now a...

Scientists make quantum ‘waves’ in ultrathin materials

Wavelike, collective oscillations of electrons known as “plasmons” are very important for determining the optical and electronic properties of metals. In atomically thin 2D materials,...
