The strength of the interactions between electrons in a structure called twisted bilayer graphene has been tuned by adjusting the immediate environment — a major advance for tunable electronic quantum matter.
By all measures, graphene should not exist. The fact it does comes down to some neat loophole in physics which sees with an impossible 2D sheet of atoms behave like a good 3D material. New research has delved into graphene’s rippling, discovering a physical happening on an atomic scale which
A neutrino moving through solid matter will sometimes create a shower of fast-moving charged particles called a cascade. As these particles slow down, they ionize atoms in the solid, leaving behind a tell-tale cloud of electrical charge.
Our electronic devices are evolving rapidly. Ten years ago, the smartphone was a cutting-edge innovation, but these days, modern smartphones have already so completely outstripped their predecessors that the original iPhone looks like a veritable dinosaur compared to the new iPhone 11. In the coming years, device technology will take
Everywhere we turn, geopolitics is in disarray. The old order is dying, and the current chaos is at least partially attributable to the critical role that energy production and consumption play on the world stage. Solving the looming energy crisis facing our global civilization would promote harmony, goodwill, and order
The term „free energy“ gets bandied around a lot these days, but nobody seems to know what it means. Some people think that free energy technologies recovered from crashed UFOs have been hidden from the public for decades, and others swear that Nikola Tesla created a working free energy device
Throughout human history, new technologies have always displaced existing jobs. As you travel across planet Earth in the 21st century, you’ll find that there are hardly any hunter-gatherers left. Instead, you’ll find plenty of teachers, doctors, lawyers, and, yes, truck drivers. Like many other professionals, however, truck drivers across the
As humanity has yearned for the stars, its energy output has needed to stay in balance with increasingly sophisticated technologies. Finding the manpower to row a Viking vessel was far less complex than understanding the engine operation procedures of a modern-day cruise ship, but at every turn, the human race
Ever since the 2015 discovery that neutrinos have mass, scientists around the world have been scrambling to uncover the secrets of these ethereal particles and their newfound energy-generating potential. For the first time, a recent experiment in Germany has determined the maximum upper limit of neutrino mass, which changes everything
