The apparent inner calm of quantum materials

09-May-2018

Transitions between different phases of matter are part of our day-to-day lives: when water freezes, for example, it passes from liquid to solid state. Some of these transitions may be of a different kind, resulting from so-called topological excitations that force all the particles to act in ...

How the surface characteristics of microspheres affect rapid increases in the viscosity of suspensions

04-May-2018

Lucio Isa and his team of researchers have explained how the surface characteristics of microspheres affect rapid increases in the viscosity of suspensions, thus laying the groundwork for applications such as smoothly flowing cement. The internet is full of videos of people having fun running ...

New materials for sustainable, low-cost batteries

02-May-2018

A new conductor material and a new electrode material could pave the way for inexpensive batteries and therefore the large-scale storage of renewable energies. The energy transition depends on technologies that allow the inexpensive temporary storage of electricity from renewable sources. A ...

Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox observed in many-particle system for the first time

27-Apr-2018

Physicists from the University of Basel have observed the quantum mechanical Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox in a system of several hundred interacting atoms for the first time. The phenomenon dates back to a famous thought experiment from 1935. It allows measurement results to be predicted ...

Freeing electrons to better trap them

19-Apr-2018

Atoms are composed of electrons moving around a central nucleus they are bound to. The electrons can also be torn away, overcoming the confining force of their nucleus, using the powerful electric field of a laser. Half a century ago, the theorist Walter Henneberger wondered if it was possible to ...

When nuclei catch up with electrons

18-Apr-2018

Understanding the dynamics of quantum-mechanical systems on their natural time scale is the main goal in attosecond science. Among the most interesting systems to investigate are molecules, which have a very high degree of complexity, in particular when compared to atomic systems. So far, the few ...

Individual impurity atoms detectable in graphene

17-Apr-2018

A team including physicists from the University of Basel has succeeded in using atomic force microscopy to clearly obtain images of individual impurity atoms in graphene ribbons. Thanks to the forces measured in the graphene’s two-dimensional carbon lattice, they were able to identify boron and ...

When superconductivity disappears in the core of a quantum tube

17-Apr-2018

Predicting the behaviour of electrons in a material is not easily done. Physicists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), ETH Zurich and EPFL replaced the electrons with ultra-cold neutral lithium atoms that they had circulated in a one-dimensional quantum tube. The scientists were then able to ...

DKSH signs exclusive distribution agreement with Johnson Matthey in Japan

03-Apr-2018

DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials has been selected as the exclusive distributor in Japan for Johnson Matthey’s broad spectrum of biocatalysts, advanced homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts as well as associated platinum metal ligands. Under the agreement, DKSH will market and ...

Faster characterization of organic salts

27-Mar-2018

UZH researchers have developed a novel method that speeds up the process of determining crystal structures of organic salts and significantly reduces the effort required to do so. As about 40 percent of all active pharmaceutical ingredients are salts, this new crystallographic method is set to ...
