The study of the performance of ultra-small structures, materials, and devices, usu. usually 0.1 to 100 nm; also, the study of manipulating materials on an atomic or molecular scale. Nanoscience is sometimes used interchangably with Nanotechnology, which is the manipulation of matter on an atomic ...
(this question is a crosspost from theoretical physics.) I am using atomic force microscopy (AFM) for characterizing pores of the size of nanometers for application in gas flow. For this, knowing ...
First of all sorry for my English - it is not my native language. During my engineering studies at the university the thermodynamics professor told us that the "second law of thermodynamics is not ...
In the last year there has been fuzz regarding metamaterials studied for the purpose of cloaking, and it seem to me they are somewhat glorified 2D waveguides, but in any case it seems a reasonable ...
I'm looking into nanotubes and I thought I'd assure myself that the basic geometry equations are indeed correct. No problems for the radius, I quickly found the known formula: $$R = ...
Why is graphene stronger than graphite when graphene is just a single layer while graphite is multiple layers of graphene? And can't we say that diamond and coal also consist of layers of graphene as ...
