Researchers at the University of Basel in Switzerland say that they have made the first ever direct measurements of the strength of the tiny van der Waals forces passing between individual atoms. Though weak compared with covalent bonds, van der Waals forces are fundamental for the function of biological systems and define the properties of many organic compounds.

Physicists uncover novel phase of matter: Finding could have implications for high-temperature superconductivity

It is not a conventional metal, insulator, or magnet. It is something entirely different and could hold the solution to a long-standing mystery related to high-temperature superconductivity.

Not a conventional metal, insulator, or magnet, but something entirely different—the ability for some materials to conduct electricity without resistance, even at temps approaching 100 degree Celsius.

What others are saying

University of Illinois engineers have found an energy-efficient material for removing salt from seawater that could provide a rebuttal to poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge's lament, 'Water, water, every where, nor any drop to drink.

Robust yet single-layer material comprising molybdenum disulphide with 'nanopores', can effectively filter salt from seawater.

Researchers have developed a material that allows water to pass through tiny holes called 'nanopores' while blocking salt and other contaminants.

A computer model of a nanopore in a single-layer sheet of shows that high volumes of water can pass through the pore using less pressure than standard plastic membranes. Salt water is shown on the left, fresh water on the right.
