Detonation technique to mass-produce graphene patented

27-Jan-2017

Forget chemicals, catalysts and expensive machinery -- a Kansas State University team of physicists has discovered a way to mass-produce graphene with three ingredients: hydrocarbon gas, oxygen and a spark plug. Their method is simple: Fill a chamber with acetylene or ethylene gas and oxygen. Use ...

Cost-saving, longer-lasting biodegradable adhesive patented by Kansas State University

12-Jan-2017

Kansas State University researchers have patented the first plant-based resin of its kind that would be ideal for re-adherable painters' tape, labels, packing tapes, stationery notes and other adhesive uses. It also can provide shiny coatings. "Painters generally finish projects with mounds of ...

Watching the buildup of quantum superpositions

14-Nov-2016

It is definitely the most famous experiment in quantum physics: in the double slit experiment, a particle is fired onto a plate with two parallel slits, so there are two different paths on which the particle can reach the detector on the other side. Due to its quantum properties, the particle ...

A movie of the microworld: Physicists create nanoparticle picture series

07-Apr-2016

Think of it as a microscopic movie: A sequence of X-ray images shows the explosion of superheated nanoparticles. The picture series reveals how the atoms in these particles move, how they form plasma and how the particles change shape. The method of taking these pictures is a collaborative ...

New surfaces delay ice formation

Split personality: Water-attracting spots on water-repelling surfaces can prevent ice formation

08-Oct-2015

If you've ever waited on an airport runway for your plane to be de-iced, had to remove all your food so the freezer could defrost, or arrived late to work because you had to scrape the sheet of ice off your car windshield, you know that ice can cause major headaches. "People intuitively know that ...

When is a molecule a molecule?

Scientists watch fast electron jumps in exploding molecules

22-Jul-2014

Using ultra-short X-ray flashes, an international team of researchers watched electrons jumping between the fragments of exploding molecules. The study reveals up to what distance a charge transfer between the two molecular fragments can occur, marking the limit of the molecular regime. The ...

Professor uses diamond to produce graphene quantum dots and nano-ribbons of controlled structure

21-May-2012

Kansas State University researchers have come closer to solving an old challenge of producing graphene quantum dots of controlled shape and size at large densities, which could revolutionize electronics and optoelectronics. Vikas Berry, William H. Honstead professor of chemical engineering, has ...
