New Theoretical Model to Tune Conductivity of Graphene Nanoribbons using Ultra-Short Pulses

Physicists have, for the first time, explored in detail the time evolution of the conductivity, as well as other quantum-level electron transport characteristics, of a graphene device subjected to periodic ultra-short pulses. [More]
First Direct Observations of One-Dimensional Boundary Separating Two Different, Atom-Thin Materials

First Direct Observations of One-Dimensional Boundary Separating Two Different, Atom-Thin Materials

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have made the first direct observations of a one-dimensional boundary separating two different, atom-thin materials, enabling studies of long-theorized phenomena at these interfaces. [More]
X-Ray Light Source PETRA III Helps Investigate Photosynthesis Subsystem in Near-Natural State

X-Ray Light Source PETRA III Helps Investigate Photosynthesis Subsystem in Near-Natural State

Photosynthesis is one of the most important processes in nature. The complex method by which all green plants harvest sunlight and thereby produce the oxygen in our air is still not fully understood. Researchers have used DESY's X-ray light source PETRA III to investigate a photosynthesis subsystem in a near-natural state. [More]
