“The results provide a very convenient laboratory example of what is known as a ‘dissipative soliton system’ which is a central concept in nonlinear science and also relevant to studies in other fields, such as biology, medicine and possibly even social sciences,” said John. M. Dudley, a researcher at the University of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.
The rapid development of flexible and wearable electronics is giving rise to an exciting range of applications, from smart watches and flexible displays — such as smart phones, tablets, and TV — to smart fabrics, smart glass, transdermal patches, sensors, and more. With this rise, demand has increased for high-performance flexible batteries.
A group of scientists have turned graphene into a superconductor, capable of carrying electricity with no resistance. The secret involved sandwiching two layers of graphene together and offsetting them by a ‘magic angle.’ This discovery could help scientists trying to develop superconductors that work at room temperatures.
While this isn’t the first technology in development that’s designed to see objects around corners, the new algorithm is far more efficient and effective at producing an image than previous attempts, researchers said.
