Insulator becomes conductor at the push of a button 11 September 2018
Ionic liquids are important in scientific research because they can apply a lot of charge over a surface. Leiden physicists have now found that the ch...
Century-old law on electric noise overturned 27 March 2018
Electric noise can be useful for scientists but inconvenient for chip manufacturers. They do share a wish to predict the amount of noise. PhD student ...
Two graphene layers lean in for a kiss 23 March 2018
Leiden physicists and chemists have managed to bring two graphene layers so close together that an electric current spontaneously jumps across. In the...
New way of driving nanomotors 21 December 2015
Leiden Physicists have found evidence for the Berry-force that could be used for driving tiny nanomotors, just like a river drives a water wheel. Nano...
