Researchers using the Advanced Photon Source have found a way to “activate” methane so that it can be converted into products like liquid fuels, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers, and much more.
Center for Nanoscale Materials researchers present a quantum model for achieving ground-state cooling in low frequency mechanical resonators and show how cooperativity and entanglement are key factors to enhance the cooling figure of merit.
In a study published in Small, Center for Nanoscale Materials researchers created a protocol for controlling shell morphology in water-processed semiconductor nanoparticles and revealed the dependence of charge separation efficiency on shell morphology.
In a Nature Communications article, a team led by Center for Nanoscale Materials researchers introduces a machine learning workflow of models for water transformations that increases accuracy at lower computational cost.
Two new methods reduce noise and remove errors in quantum observables by focusing on individual noise sources. They add little qubit overhead and can be used in quantum sensing and general quantum experimentation, as well as quantum computing.
An experiment at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator demonstrates the potential of a novel metamaterial structure to yield higher accelerating gradients than current particle accelerator technology provides.
Using a single actuation signal, a frequency comb is generated in a micromechanical resonator from two vibrational modes, flexural and torsional, whose interactions are responsible for the unique response.
