  • Seeing the next dimension of computer chips

    A research collaboration between Osaka University and the Nara Institute of Science and Technology for the first time used scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to create images of atomically flat side-surfaces of 3D silicon crystals. This work helps semiconductor manufacturers continue to innovate wh more

  • Studies of 'amorphous ice' reveal hidden order in glass

    The waves at the bottom of old window panes are a reminder that solid glass behaves like a very slow-moving liquid. Now a new study challenges the notion that the atomic structure of glass is indistinguishable from that of a liquid ­- at least for a certain kind of glass called "amorphous ice" that more

  • Semiconductor dynamics may help improve energy efficiency

    Researchers examining the flow of electricity through semiconductors have uncovered another reason these materials seem to lose their ability to carry a charge as they become more densely "doped." Their results may help engineers design faster semiconductors in the future. Semiconductors are found i more

The Chemistry of Silly Putty

Silly putty (or science putty, as it’s sometimes referred to) is an odd material. Stretch it slowly and it happily deforms, and can be molded very easily. However, pull it apart with enough force and it’ll snap clean in two. It flows imperceptibly slowly, as if it were a thick liquid, but when rolle more

Group 4 Elements

This latest infographic focuses on the Group 4 (Group 14 in IUPAC nomenclature) elements. One extra fact to add for the curious: although tin has the greatest number of stable isotopes, Xenon trumps it comprehensively if unstable isotopes are also included in the count, with well over 30 possible is more

The Chemical Elements of a Smartphone

There are an isolated few graphics online that look at elements involved in the manufacture of a smartphone – for example, this ‘Periodic Table of iPhones’ – but there’s actually remarkably little easily accessible information out there that details the specific compounds used for specific purposes more

  • The Best Measurement

    It is now more than 30 years since attempts started to find a way of defining the kilogram based on an atomic constant or a fundamental physical constant. Since then, two methods have advanced sufficiently far to make it likely that there will be a new definition within the coming years, namely the Watt balance ­experiment for determination of Planck‘s constant h and the Avogadro experiment for determining the ­Avogadro Constant NA. more
