Computer Simulations Lead to Production of Material Exhibiting Superlubricity

Computer Simulations Lead to Production of Material Exhibiting Superlubricity

Scientists at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) have identified a material that demonstrates superlubricity at the macroscale. Computer simulations using the Mira supercomputer have helped advance the design for a near-frictionless material. [More]
Researchers Develop Dielectric Material-Based Thin Invisibility Cloak

Researchers Develop Dielectric Material-Based Thin Invisibility Cloak

Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have designed and developed a thin cloaking device that addresses some of the shortcomings faced in “invisibility cloaks.” This new device does not modify the light’s brightness surrounding a hidden object. The technology involved in this invisibility cloak device holds promise in optical communications to boost signal speed, and also for concentrating solar energy applications. [More]
