Development of flexible thermoelectric devices with maximized flexibility and high efficiency; enabling mass production with high yield by automated process, commercialization of self-powered wearable devices. A thermoelectric device is an…

Researchers develop new one-step process for creating self-assembled metamaterials

A team led by University of Minnesota Twin Cities researchers has discovered a groundbreaking one-step process for creating materials with unique properties, called metamaterials. Their results show the realistic possibility…

Discovery of quantum behavior in insulators suggests possible new particle

In a surprising discovery, Princeton physicists have observed an unexpected quantum behavior in an insulator made from a material called tungsten ditelluride. This phenomenon, known as quantum oscillation, is typically…

Transition metal ‘cocktail’ helps make brand new superconductors

Concept of high entropy alloys provides a discovery platform for new superconductors. Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University mixed and designed a new, high entropy alloy (HEA) superconductor, using extensive data…

Refined process enables high-strength thin glass

A materials scientist at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany has been awarded a prestigious “ERC Proof of Concept Grant” from the European Research Council to further develop and refine a…

On the road to invisible solar panels

How tomorrow’s windows will generate electricity A new study led by scientists from Incheon National University in Korea shows how to make a fully transparent solar cell. Five years after…

When damaged ropes change color

High-performance fibres that have been exposed to high temperatures usually lose their mechanical properties undetected and, in the worst case, can tear precisely when lives depend on them. For example,…
