Physicists force gallium arsenide to form new state; Electrons dance to celebrate. Quantum computing applications may result.

Zinc oxide nanowires could provide new method for interfacing biological systems with electronic systems. May provide “another component needed for fabricating complete self-powered nanoelectromechanical systems.”

Ok, the fact that soldiers wearing heavy medieval body armor were less likely to win battles has nothing to do with radio or electronics. It’s just cool reading about medieval armor.

Researchers at the Berkly Lab make a graphene sandwich – to improve high energy storage in batteries – not because they have the munchies.
