Magnetic quantum material broadens platform for probing next-gen information technologies

Neutron scattering revealed spin correlations of iron trichloride. An artist’s depiction interprets the scattering that provides evidence of a spiral spin liquid state. Credit: Jacquelyn DeMink/ORNL Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory used neutron scattering to determine whether a specific material’s atomic structure could host a novel state of matter called a spiral spin … Read more

Technologies for single-cell RNA profiling can help dissect the cellular bases of complex diseases around the globe

Alex K. Shalek, an MIT associate professor of chemistry, uses such technologies as single-cell RNA-sequencing to analyze in gene expression patterns of individual cells, and to figure out how each cell differences contributes to the function of a tissue or organ. Credit: M. Scott Brauer Within a given tissue or organ, cells may appear very … Read more

Review of technologies that boost potential for carbon dioxide conversion to useful products

With the well-defined reticular frameworks and flexible modifiability, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) can be the ideal platform to construct the enabled catalysts for carbon dioxide hydrogenation with the enhancement of catalytic activity and precise control of selectivity. Credit: Tsinghua University Press The excessive emission of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, is rapidly raising the average global … Read more
