ZrSiSe – Light Observed Zigzagging Through A Semimetal

In new research, a team from Columbia University describes ZrSiSe, a metal capable of conducting light. ZrSiSe shares electronic similarities with graphene.

Membrane Water Permeability Works Backwards At The Nanoscale

Membrane Water Permeability Works Backwards At The Nanoscale

More pores in a sieve let more liquid flow through it. But the opposite can be the case at the nanoscopic level, researchers experimenting with Graphene Oxide (GO) membranes have found.
