Single molecular insulator pushes boundaries of current state of the art

Researchers have synthesized the first molecule capable of insulating at the nanometer scale more effectively than a vacuum barrier. The team’s insight was to exploit the wave nature of electrons. By designing an extremely rigid silicon-based molecule under 1 nm in length that exhibited comprehensive destructive interference signatures, they devised a novel technique for blocking tunnelling conduction. This new design principle has the potential to support continued miniaturization of classic transistors in the near term.

Detection of transcranial direct current stimulation deep in the living human brain

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) produces electric fields (EFs) at subcortical levels of the human brain, report investigators . Data demonstrate that detected voltage changed proportionally with the amount of current applied and varied by pad placement. This clinical evidence reveals that scalp-applied tDCS can indeed generate EFs deep inside the living human brain that are potentially of biological relevance.
