Credit: Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) A Korean research team has developed technology that effectively controls fine particles and nanoplastics, which are major causes of human toxicity and ecosystem disturbance. This technology, which allows to sort, purify and concentrate in real time nanoparticles invisible …

Scientists from the US Department of Energy’s Ames lab and their collaborators at Iowa State University have developed a new approach to generate hard-to-combine, layered heterostructured solids. Heterostructured materials, composed of layers of dissimilar building blocks, exhibit unique electronic and magnetic transport properties that are governed by quantum interactions between their structurally different building blocks, …
