Scientists discover ​“ripple” in flexible material that could improve electronic properties

Argonne scientists have discovered an intriguing new behavior in a two-dimensional material at the atomic level as it is stretched and strained, like it would be in an actual flexible device.

Paramagnetic Spins Take Electrons for a Ride, Produce Electricity from Heat

Local thermal perturbations of spins in a solid can convert heat to energy even in a paramagnetic material – where spins weren’t thought to correlate long enough to do so. This effect, “paramagnon drag thermopower,” converts a temperature difference into an electrical voltage.
