A discovery at Vienna University of Technology opens up the possibility of integrating a light detector for terahertz radiation into a chip.

Danish scientists observed the growth of nanoparticles live. The study shows how tungsten oxide nanoparticles are forming from solution.

Scientists have developed a next-generation solar cell material which can also emit light, in addition to converting light to electricity.

Simple and fast way of making TiO2 nanocrystals could mean long-lasting anodes for next generation high-power Li-ion batteries, according to researchers.

The first room-temperature light detector that can sense the full infrared spectrum has the potential to put heat vision technology into a contact lens.

Exploring the role of research in innovation.

A team of researchers found that the Third Law of Thermodynamics could be restored in thin films of the magnetic material spin ice.

Diamond sensors can measure the tiny magnetic fields in high-temperature superconductors, providing a new tool to probe materials.

Light can trigger coordinated, wavelike motions of atoms in atom-thin layers of crystal, scientists have shown.
