Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
Complex crystals that mimic metals-including a structure for which there is no natural equivalent-can be achieved with a new approach to guiding nanoparticle self-assembly. Rather than just nanoparticles that serve as "atom equivalents,” the crystals produced and interpreted by Northwestern University, University of Michigan and Argonne National Laboratory rely on even smaller particles that simulate electrons.

Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument creates largest 3D map of the cosmos
DESI has already mapped out more galaxies than all previous 3D surveys combined-and it's just getting started The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument has capped off the first seven months of its survey run by creating the largest and most detailed map of the universe ever. The instrument has smashed previous records for 3D galaxy surveys, yet it's only about 10% of the way through its five-year mission.

Can oil and water mix?
Can oil and water mix?
Common experience tells us that oil and water do not mix. Yet, it turns out that they can mix when oil is dispersed as small droplets in water. This strange behavior has long vexed scientists because there is no explanation for it. A team of EPFL and ICTP scientists have studied this question using novel optical technology and discovered the mechanism by which these two neutral and immiscible compounds can in fact mix together and form emulsions.

Magnets with a twist: U-M researchers engineer magnetic complexity into atomically thin magnets
Magnets are used in so many of our everyday objects including cell phones and in the strip of a credit card or a hotel key. They even power the engine in your vacuum. And as most computers use magnets to store information, finding ever thinner magnets is key to faster, lighter electronics. Graphene, a material that is one atom thick, was discovered in 2004 and won the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics.
