Graphyne sheets could filter salt from seawater at rates several orders of magnitude faster than conventional desalination techniques, say Chinese researchers
A material that selectively blocks heat and light could finally make it practical to add smart windows to buildings.
The ability to stack graphene sheets on top of each other should make possible an entirely new class of devices that exploit previously inaccessible physics, say researchers
The only way to study the early stages of planet formation is in microgravity. This is how a group of students set out to do it
Streaming designs to 3-D printers like Netflix does movies could prevent unauthorized copying.
Researchers aim to print large areas of carbon nanotube thin-film transistors on plastic surfaces to make flexible displays and sensor networks.
Researchers demonstrate flexible graphene circuits speedy enough for cell-phone communication.
Vortices in the South Atlantic are mathematically equivalent to black holes, say physicists, an idea that could lead to new ways of understanding how currents transport oil and garbage across oceans
Chemists have calculated that chains of double or triple-bonded carbon atoms, known as carbyne, should be stronger and stiffer than any known material.
A simple arrangement of switchable mirrors can create "holes in time" of almost any length.
