Scientists drill into white graphene to create artificial atoms: Patterned on a microchip and working in ambient conditions, the atoms could lead to rapid advancements in new quantum-based technology — ScienceDaily

By drilling holes into a thin two-dimensional sheet of hexagonal boron nitride with a gallium-focused ion beam, scientists have created artificial atoms that generate single photons, which work in air and room temperature.

Electricity-conducting bacteria yield secret to tiny batteries, big medical advances: Researchers reveal amazing biological ‘wires’ of a sort never seen before — ScienceDaily

These strange bacteria conduct electricity via a structure never before seen in nature — a structure scientists can co-opt to miniaturize electronics, create powerful-yet-tiny batteries, build pacemakers without wires and develop a host of other medical advances.
