  • Zinc oxide: It's not just for sunscreen and diaper cream!

    For many, zinc oxide conjures images of bright stripes down lifeguards' noses. But for researchers in Concordia's Faculty of Arts and Science, ZnO is an exciting compound with important optical and electrical properties. For a study Concordia physicists Amir Hassanpour and Pablo Bianucci joined chem more

  • Forces that align crystals and help them snap together measured

    Like two magnets being pulled toward each other, tiny crystals twist, align and slam into each other, but due to an altogether different force. For the first time, researchers have measured the force that draws them together and visualized how they swivel and align. Called van der Waals forces, the more

  • Prestigious grant for imaging single molecules

    An international team of researchers, including DESY scientist Henry Chapman, has been awarded a research grant by the Human Frontier Science Program to develop a novel method for imaging individual biomolecules with atomic resolution. The team will receive a total of 1.35 million US-Dollars over a more

Understanding Crystallography - Part 1: From Proteins to Crystals

How can you determine the structure of a complex molecule from a single crystal? Professor Elspeth Garman take us on a journey into the world of crystallography - from protein production and purification to growing the right type of crystals.In her laboratory at the University of Oxford Elspeth ... more

Understanding Crystallography - Part 2: From Crystals to Diamond

How do X-rays help us uncover the molecular basis of life?In the second part of this mini-series, Professor Stephen Curry takes us on a journey into the Diamond Light Source, one of the UK's most expensive and sophisticated scientific facilities.Generating light brighter than the sun, and hostin ... more

Pulling Apart Titanium Oxide Surfaces

Researchers slowly pull apart tiny bits of a titanium oxide mineral called rutile. The red dots near the top show the starting point. As the bottom half is pulled down, the top half stays attached by van der Waals forces -- until, that is, the pull becomes too great. The tips are about a thousan ... more

The Shapes of Snowflakes

In the Northern Hemisphere at least, the idealised vision of Christmas involves snow. Whilst no one snowflake is exactly the same as another, at least on a molecular level, scientists have none-the-less devised a system of classification for the many types of crystals that snow can form. This graphi more
