A nanoscale surface has helped craft an optical device that is a tunable optical switch, optical limiter and one-way window for light.
A sensor inspired by the retina could improve the safety and performance of self-driving cars, robotics and high-speed autonomous drones.
Researchers have discovered a bilayer 2D crystalline material that is superconducting and ferroelectric, which could have a major impact on next-generation electronics and its capabilities.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have used epitaxy, an emerging method for synthesizing a thin film and membrane.
Materials engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a new method for making graphene nanoribbons.
Researchers are searching for the next great semiconductors—materials that can continue to improve and evolve microprocessors and other nanoelectric devices. Graphene nanoribbons, a one-atom-thick material just 3 nanometers wide, are one of the most promising candidates.
In the future, farmers will be able to look at a tablet and see the nutrient, CO2 and moisture levels of every individual acre in their fields in real time.
University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers have developed an all-thin-film membrane composite of the relaxor-ferroelectric material lead magnesium niobate-lead titanate (PMN-PT) and ferromagnetic nickel that demonstrates an intrinsic coupling between voltage and spin.
An ultra-compact angle sensor built from flat optics captures these measurements at 30 frames per second, which will allow for more accurate and precise measurements of tiny atomic materials.
Engineers have worked out a method to make orderly sheets of 2-dimensional carbon nanotubes by aligning them between layers of water and a solvent “ink.”
