System Bits: June 3

Controlling the growth of metal-crystals from single atoms In a breakthrough that allows for observation and direct control of the nano-world in motion, researchers at the University of Warwick have developed a method, called Nanocrystallometry, that allows for the creation of precise components for use in nanotechnology. The method uses a doped-graphene matrix to slow down and then trap at... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Aug. 27

Möbius strip ties liquid crystal in knots By tying knots in liquid crystals using a miniature Möbius strip made from silica particles, University of Warwick researchers hope to understand how their intricate configurations and unique properties can be harnessed in the next generation of advanced materials and photonic devices. Given that liquid crystal is an essential material in modern l... » read more
