A team of researchers has observed a rare phenomenon called re-entrant superconductivity in the material uranium ditelluride. Nicknamed Lazarus superconductivity, the phenomenon occurs when a superconducting state arises, breaks down and then re-emerges in a material due to a change in a specific parameter in this case, the application of a very strong magnetic field. Image: Emily Edwards/JQI. Researchers from the University of Maryland (UMD), the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the US National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) and the University of Oxford in the UK have observed a rare phenomenon called re-entrant superconductivity in the material uranium ditelluride. Their discovery furthers the case for ura.

This illustration shows two iterations of a metal lattice meeting at a grain boundary defect, with atoms of an alloying element (gold) fitting into the defect. Image credit: Liang Qi. A new way to calculate the interaction between a metal and its alloying material could speed the hunt for new alloys that combine the hardness of a ceramic with the resilience of a metal. Engineers at the University of Michigan have identified two aspects of this interaction that can accurately predict how a particular alloy will behave – and with fewer demanding, time-consuming quantum mechanical calculations. "Our findings may enable the use of machine-learning algorithms for alloy design, potentially accelerating the search for better alloys that could be u.

The ribs in the different layers of the lattice are programmed to grow and shrink in response to a change in temperature, mapping the curves of Gauss' face (top left). Images courtesy of Harvard SEAS. What would it take to transform a flat sheet into a human face? How would the sheet need to grow and shrink to form eyes that are concave into the face, and a convex nose and chin that protrude? How to encode and release complex curves in shape-shifting structures is at the center of research led by researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Harvard Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering. Over the past decade, theorists and experimentalists have found inspiration in nature

An element-specific, scanning transmission electron microscopy image of the atoms in a new crystalline material developed by researchers at Yale University in collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory. The image shows layered sheets of cobalt (green) and titanium (red) atoms. Image: Brookhaven National Laboratory. The revolutionary advances in technology of the next few decades may come from new materials so small they make nanomaterials look like lumpy behemoths. These new materials will be designed and refined at the picometer scale, which is a thousand times smaller than a nanometer and a million times smaller than a micrometer (which itself is smaller than the width of a human hair). In order to do this work, scientists will nee.

"This work demonstrates the polymer's potential for use in industrial gas separation and carbon capture technologies, with benefits for both manufacturing efficiency and efforts to mitigate global climate change.". Liyuan Deng, Norwegian University of Science and Technology. An international team of researchers has found that submerging a polymer in liquid water can significantly boost its ability to selectively remove carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from gas mixtures. "Normally, improving the permeability of a gas through a material impairs the material's selectivity," says Rich Spontak, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and of materials science and engineering at North Carolina State University, and co-corresponding author of a pape.

"Superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene will teach us about superconductivity at much higher temperatures, temperatures that will be useful for real-world applications.". Emilio Codecido, Ohio State University. Researchers at Ohio State University, in collaboration with scientists around the world, have made a discovery that could provide new insights into how superconductors might deliver energy more efficiently to power homes, industries and vehicles. Their work, reported in a paper in , showed that graphene – a material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms – is more likely to become a superconductor than originally thought possible. "Graphene by itself can conduct energy, as a normal metal is conductive, but it is only recentl.

This illustration shows how edges are connected at the corners of a borophene flake. Image: Zhuhua Zhang/Rice University/Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Scientists have found that silver can help the two-dimensional (2D) material borophene, an atom-thick allotrope of boron that so far can only be synthesized by molecular-beam epitaxy (MBE), to grow to unheard-of lengths. By using a silver substrate and carefully manipulating the temperature and deposition rate, the scientists were able to grow elongated, hexagon-shaped flakes of borophene. This could facilitate the growth of ultrathin, narrow borophene ribbons. The new work, reported in by researchers at Rice and Northwestern universities, Argonne National Laboratory and.
