Improving technology through the coffee ring effect

New theory of coffee-ring effect could keep solar panels clean, improve DNA sequencing.

A new computational model can calculate how metallic glasses morph over time when they are put under mechanical stress.

In some water-splitting catalysts, oxygen comes from within the catalyst material itself, as well as from the surrounding water molecules.

Placing cones that act as nano-chimneys between graphene and carbon nanotubes could enhance heat dissipation from nano-electronics.

Compressing and fusing flakes of graphene can produce a porous, lightweight 3D material with a strength 10 times that of steel.

Defects in cement that catch layers of the material as they move past each other can produce concrete that is tougher and stronger.

Submissions for the 8th annual Reaxys PhD Prize are now open.

Firing highly-charged xenon ions at graphene has revealed that the electrons in this material are highly mobile, generating a very high current density.

Scientists have used tiny diamonds known as use diamondoids to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires, just three atoms wide.

Christopher Hutchinson and Tadashi Furuhara join the Acta Journals.
