Characterization news, July 2014

Researchers have used a microscope to study the relationship between the atomic geometry of a ribbon of graphene and its electrical properties.

The first experimental evidence for a boron buckyball has been obtained by chemists in the US and China.

Thank you to all who have submitted. Winners to be announced at the Materials Today Asia conference in December.

Physicists were able to place 20 single atoms on a fully insulated surface at room temperature to form the smallest “Swiss cross”.

Research may help diagnose irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease and other gastrointestinal illnesses.

What is believed to be the smallest force ever measured has been detected by researchers with Berkeley Lab and the University of California (UC) Berkeley.

Skyrmions, subatomic quasiparticles that could play a key role in future spintronic technologies, have been observed for the first time using x-rays.

The best in materials science news from June 2014.

After two years of effort, researchers have successfully measured the collective mass of ‘massless’ electrons in motion in graphene.

Researchers have developed new “sensing skin” technology designed to serve as an early warning system for concrete structures.
