In the beginning was the phase separation

Was a simple mechanism decisive for the origin of life?

25-May-2018

The question of the origin of life remains one of the oldest unanswered scientific questions. A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now shown for the first time that phase separation is an extremely efficient way of controlling the selection of chemical building blocks and ...

How order first appears in liquid crystals

24-May-2018

Liquid crystals undergo a peculiar type of phase change. At a certain temperature, their cigar-shaped molecules go from a disordered jumble to a more orderly arrangement in which they all point more or less in the same direction. LCD televisions take advantage of that phase change to project ...

Technique doubles conversion of CO2 to plastic component

24-May-2018

Fossil fuels have long been the precursor to plastic, but new research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and European collaborators could help send that era up in smoke - carbon dioxide, to be exact. Produced almost entirely from burning fossil fuels, carbon dioxide concentrations in the ...

One-way roads for spin currents

24-May-2018

The spin is a type of angular momentum which is intrinsic to particles, grosso modo as if they were spinning on themselves. Particles can exchange their spin, and in this way spin currents can be formed in a material. Through years of research, scientists have learned how to control such spin ...
