New 3-D visualization tool could enable targeted drug delivery for cystic fibrosis and other conditions.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has uncovered a direct link between sample quality and the degree of valley polarization in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). In contrast with graphene, many monolayer TMDs are semiconductors and show promise for future applications in electronic and optoelectronic technologies.

Physicists have built a nanostructure whose crystal lattice bends light as it enters the material and directs it in a path parallel to the surface, known as “parallel to interface refraction.”
Researchers have demonstrated a way to bring a powerful form of spectroscopy — a technique used to study a wide variety of materials — into the nano-world.
Scientists have discovered a surprising set of chemical reactions involving magnesium that degrade battery performance even before the battery can be charged up. The findings could steer the design of next-gen batteries.
It’s really surprising: it turns out that among simple electronic circuits, built of just a few components, many of them behave chaotically, in an extremely complicated, practically unpredictable manner.
A new study reveals surprising chemical reactivity in battery components previously considered compatible.
Scientists describe how the indentation toughness of polar crystals can be manipulated in such a way that they become easier or harder to dent from a given direction.
A new study describes the use of cutting-edge microscopy technology to visualize how liposomes escape from blood vessels into surrounding cells in a living mouse, offering clues that may help researchers design better drug delivery systems.
