It's really, really thin. It's tough as lead boots. It's sexy. It's graphene. And, the science world gets all hot and heavy when it is around. Brainiacs just love the super-material.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a compact atomic clock design that relies on cold rubidium atoms instead of the usual hot atoms, a switch that promises improved precision and stability.
IBM scientists have developed a new mobile authentication security technology based on the radio standard known as near-field communication (NFC). The technology provides an extra layer of security when using an NFC-enabled device and a contact-less smart card to conduct mobile transactions.
Giving a different meaning to data storage in the cloud, scientists have succeeded in storing a miniature movie in a room-teperature atomic vapor.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have worked out a way to produce light pulses that - in a way - travel faster than the speed of light.
NIST physicists have for the first time linked the quantum properties of two separated ions by manipulating them with microwaves instead of the usual laser beams.
It's not news that it happens - but it's rather amazing to be able to measure it. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has been able to demonstrate that time passes faster just a foot above the ground.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is using organic semiconductors as a basis for spray-on large-area electronics such as solar cells and displays.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built the world's most accurate clock.
