Merck Researcher Pohl Inducted into the Hall of Fame of German Research

30-10-2014

Merck announced that its former liquid crystals researcher Ludwig Pohl (82) has been inducted into the Hall of Fame of German Research. "Without the work of Ludwig Pohl and his colleagues, flat-screen televisions, tablet PCs and smartphones would have hardly been possible. And without liquid ...

Figuring out how we get the nitrogen we need

Figuring out how we get the nitrogen we need Caltech chemists image nitrogenase's active site at work

30-10-2014

Nitrogen is an essential component of all living systems, playing important roles in everything from proteins and nucleic acids to vitamins. It is the most abundant element in Earth's atmosphere and is literally all around us, but in its gaseous state, N2,, it is inert and useless to most ...

Can the wave function of an electron be divided and trapped?

30-10-2014

New research by physicists from Brown University puts the profound strangeness of quantum mechanics in a nutshell — or, more accurately, in a helium bubble. Experiments led by Humphrey Maris, professor of physics at Brown, suggest that the quantum state of an electron — the electron's wave ...

New evidence for an exotic, predicted superconducting state

29-10-2014

Superconductors and magnetic fields do not usually get along. But a research team led by a Brown University physicist has produced new evidence for an exotic superconducting state, first predicted a half-century ago, that can indeed arise when a superconductor is exposed to a strong magnetic ...

Watching the hidden life of materials

Ultrafast electron diffraction experiments open a new window on the microscopic world

29-10-2014

Researchers at McGill University have succeeded in simultaneously observing the reorganizations of atomic positions and electron distribution during the transformation of the “smart material” vanadium dioxide (VO2) from a semiconductor into a metal – in a timeframe a trillion times faster than ...

Where did all the oil go?

A UCSB professor's analysis traces oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon event to its resting place on the Gulf of Mexico's deep floor

29-10-2014

Due to its unprecedented scope, the damage assessment caused by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been a challenge. One unsolved puzzle is the location of 2 million barrels of submerged oil thought to be trapped in the deep ocean.UC Santa Barbara's David Valentine and ...

A GPS from the chemistry set

Color trail shows quickest route to destination

29-10-2014

Empa scientists teamed up with colleagues from Hungary, Japan and Scotland to develop a chemical “processor” which reliably shows the fastest way through a City maze. As the method is basically faster than a satnav system, it could be useful in transport planning and logistics in the future, for ...

Liquid helium offers a fascinating new way to make charged molecules

28-10-2014

A collaboration between researchers at the Universities of Leicester and Innsbruck has developed a completely new way of forming charged molecules which offers tremendous potential for new areas of chemical research. Professor Andrew Ellis from our Department of Chemistry has been working for ...

Berkeley Lab study reveals molecular structure of water at gold electrodes

28-10-2014

When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding of a diverse set of phenomena from biology to materials science. When the solid surface is ...

Nanoparticle technology triples the production of biogas

27-10-2014

Researchers of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), a Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence, and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have developed the new BiogàsPlus, a technology which allows increasing the production of biogas by 200% with a controlled ...
