Measurements yield precise atomic masses for nuclear reactions in the stars

Credits: CC0 Public Domain Matter is composed of chemical elements created primarily in the stars through nuclear reactions and complex nuclear reaction networks. To understand these processes, we need to know the properties of the participating nuclei, like their masses. In his doctoral thesis in the field of nuclear physics at the University of Jyväskylä, M. Sc. Laetitia Canete has …

The moiré patterns of three layers change the electronic properties of graphene — ScienceDaily

Combining an atomically thin graphene and a boron nitride layer with a slightly rotated angle changes their electrical properties. Physicists at the University of Basel have shown for the first time that combining with a third layer can lead to new material properties even in a three-layer carbon and boron nitride sandwich. This significantly increases the number of potential synthetic …
