Breaking benzene

29-08-2014

Aromatic compounds are found widely in natural resources such as petroleum and biomass, and breaking the carbon-carbon bonds in these compounds plays an important role in the production of fuels and valuable chemicals from natural resources. However, aromatic carbon-carbon bonds are very stable ...

Measurement at Big Bang conditions confirms lithium problem

New experimental data confirm lithium nucleosynthesis after Big Bang

29-08-2014

The field of astrophysics has a stubborn problem and it's called lithium. The quantities of lithium predicted to have resulted from the Big Bang are not actually present in stars. But the calculations are correct – a fact which has now been confirmed for the first time in experiments conducted at ...

Nanodroplets rotate faster than expected

Scientists observe quantum vortices in cold helium droplets

25-08-2014

An international research team including DESY scientists has observed tiny quantum vortices in cold droplets of liquid helium. The team reports in the journal Science that the exotic vortices arrange themselves as densely packed lattices inside the nanodroplets. It is the first time that the ...
