An airy, shock-absorbing nickel lattice of extremely low density could improve vehicles, aircraft, and batteries, its creators predict.
This story was initially published with incorrect collaboration partners. The original lattice work was in conjunction with the University of Southern California, but the low-density work was with Caltech and the University of California at Irvine.
Researchers at Big Blue improved graphene-based radio receiver performance by attaching the fragile form of carbon material at the end of the chipmaking process.
On Road Trip 2013, CNET's Daniel Terdiman traveled to the Argonne National Lab to find out the history of the world's first nuclear reaction, Chicago Pile-1.
In March, the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications unveiled Blue Waters. CNET Road Trip 2013 checked out our new national supercomputer.
Some say the odds are good that we're living in a computer simulation, and a few researchers think they might know how to find out the truth.
Rice University researchers develop a technique to modify the surface of graphene, a step toward controlling it like a semiconductor for multi-purpose electronic circuits, optics, and chemical sensors.
The settlement marks the fifth lawsuit resolved in recent months by the controversial patent holding company, which claims control of more than 40,000 intellectual-property assets.
The startup sees a 75 percent boost in efficiency with its LED bulb, a new material platform for bringing down the cost of LEDs for general lighting.
Big Blue touts a radio-frequency graphene transistor with the highest frequency so far--100GHz--en route to new communications devices and electronics.
