Ultra-thin multilayer film for next-generation data storage and processing

A team of scientists led by Associate Professor Yang Hyunsoo from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Faculty of Engineering has invented a novel ultra-thin multilayer film which could harness the properties of tiny magnetic whirls, known as skyrmions, as information carriers for storing and processing data on magnetic media.

You know the units, but do you recognize the scientists responsible for them?

The Unsung Heroes of Science

Some scientists never got the praise they deserved. Here's to the ones history passed over.

The Heroes of Science

Here's to the household names and forgotten figures who accomplished incredible feats of knowledge — no capes required.

Unique wave tank helps scientists understand threat of rogue ocean waves

A team of scientists from Australia, Belgium, Italy and the UK have demonstrated how ocean winds can generate spontaneous rogue waves, the first step to predicting the potentially dangerous phenomena.

Scientists watch a molecule protect itself from radiation damage

When the molecules that carry the genetic code in our cells are exposed to harm, they have defenses against potential breakage and mutations.

Improving our understanding of di-photons

High-energy photon pairs at the Large Hadron Collider are famous for two things. First, as a clean decay channel of the Higgs boson. Second, for triggering some lively discussions in the scientific community in late 2015, when a modest excess above Standard Model predictions was observed by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. When the much larger 2016 dataset was analysed, however, no excess was observed.

Quantum-physical model system

Computer-assisted methods aid physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms.

NASA Invests in 22 Visionary Exploration Concepts

NASA is preparing for a future that could include soft robotic spacecraft with flexible surfaces that can anchor to an asteroid, and an artificial gravity device for long-duration, deep space missions, along with other technologies that so far has been limited to the realm of science fiction.
