Discovering Features of Band Topology in Amorphous Thin Films

Topological materials' unique properties make them a great choice for making next-generation devices. In order to exploit them, it was thought that crystalline materials, where atoms are highly ordered, were needed. But now, a research group has verified that even amorphous materials, where atoms ...

Scientists Designed New Enzyme Using Antarctic Bacteria and Computer Calculations

For the first time, researchers have succeeded in predicting how to change the optimum temperature of an enzyme using large computer calculations. A cold-adapted enzyme from an Antarctic bacterium was used as a ...

Soft, Ultrathin Photonic Material Cools Down Wearable Electronic Devices

Overheating of wearable skin-like electronic devices increases the risk of skin burning and results in performance degradation. A research team has now invented a photonic material-based 'soft, ultrathin, radiative-cooling interface' that greatly enhances heat dissipation in devices, with ...

Researchers Demonstrate Single-Molecule Electronic 'Switch' Using Ladder-Like Molecules

Researchers have demonstrated a new material for single-molecule electronic switches, which can effectively vary current at the nanoscale in response to external stimuli. The material for this molecular switch has a unique structure created by ...
