The device allows anyone with a loss of fine motor skills to go about their daily routines and maintain independence.

Yaoyi Li (foreground) and Mingxing Chen, UWM physics postdoctoral researchers, display an image of a ribbon of graphene 1 nanometer wide. In the image, achieved with a scanning-tunneling microscope, atoms are visible as “bumps.”

With ‘ribbons’ of graphene, width matters

A group of researchers UWM has found a novel way to “tune” the the extremely efficient conductor of electricity to act as a semiconductor.

The Coolest Known White Dwarf: A Diamond in the Sky?

This ancient stellar remnant is so cool that its carbon has crystallized, forming – in effect – an Earth-sized diamond in space.

An image taken in visible light at the SOAR telescope of the field of the pulsar/white dwarf pair. There is no evidence for the white dwarf in this deep image, indicating that the white dwarf is much fainter, therefore cooler, than any such known object. (Credit B.
