Unique duality: Princeton-led team discovers 'exotic' superconductor with metallic surface
A new material with a split personality - part superconductor, part metal - has been observed by a Princeton University-led research team. The discovery may have implications for the development of next-generation electronics that could transform the way information is stored and processed.  The new material - a crystal called a topological superconductor - has two electronic identities at once.

Ho-hum to high performance: A boring material, when 'stretched,' could lead to electronics revolution
Ho-hum to high performance: A boring material, when ’stretched,’ could lead to electronics revolution
The oxide compound europium titanate is pretty boring on its own. But sliced nanometers thin and physically stretched on a specially designed template, it takes on properties that could revolutionize the electronics industry, according to Cornell-led research. The research team, publishing Aug. 19, reports that thin films of europium titanate become both ferroelectric - electrically polarized - and ferromagnetic - exhibiting a permanent magnetic field - when laid and stretched across a substrate of dysprosium scandate, another type of oxide.

Large Hadron Collider Shatters Particles and World Record
On March 30, physicists in Geneva successfully smashed together two proton beams energized with seven trillion electron volts, breaking the previous world record by 350 percent and setting the stage for new insights into the forces of nature and full dimensions of space. The breakthrough marks an important step forward for Columbia physicists, who have played a significant role in carrying out the experiment.

Graphene photodetectors for high-speed optical communications
Although silicon has dominated solid-state electronics for more than four decades, a variety of other materials are used in photonic devices to expand the wavelength range of operation and improve performance. Electrical engineer Thomas Müller from the Institute of Photonics at the Vienna University of Technology has published the research results in cooperation with the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York 10598, USA.

New approach to water desalination
New approach to water desalination
A single unit of the new desalination device, fabricated on a layer of silicone. In the Y-shaped channel (in red), seawater enters from the right, and fresh water leaves through the lower channel at left, while concentrated brine leaves through the upper channel. CAMBRIDGE, Mass. ? A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable desalination units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries and could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village.
