Making light pulses ever-shorter is one of the goals in ultrafast optics.
Ultrashort light pulses are a valuable achievement. They make it possible to observe chemical reactions, opening up the field of femtochemistry. Other current and/or future applications include high capacity telecommunications systems, photonic switching devices, optical coherence tomography, and ...
EFSA’s ongoing work
EFSA is currently involved in a number of initiatives to develop scientific knowledge in the field of endocrine active substances and also on overlapping issues such as non-monotonic dose-response relationships and biological relevance in risk assessment. This work follows up on a 2013 scientific ...
The Performance Products division of Huntsman Corporation announced that all three of its surfactant plants in Europe have successfully achieved “Mass Balance” certification under guidelines of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).Huntsman surfactant plants in Saint-Mihiel, France; ...
The constant temperature equipment specialist LAUDA is expanding its international reach with the creation of LAUDA Italia. The purpose of the 100% subsidiary of LAUDA Beteiligungs-GmbH is to manage the increased expansion of business in the important European market. "In this company decision, ...
Proposal for a new phase of the element, where atoms dance in quartets
Perhaps not everyone knows that oxygen has quite unusually for such a simple molecule magnetic properties. The phase diagram of solid oxygen at low temperatures and high pressures shows, however, several irregularities (for example, proper "information gaps" with regard to these magnetic ...
EFSA has confirmed previous evaluations that, based on animal studies, acrylamide in food potentially increases the risk of developing cancer for consumers in all age groups. Acrylamide in food is produced by the same chemical reaction that “browns” food – also making it tastier – during everyday ...
The European Food Safety Authority’s Management Board has appointed Bernhard Url as EFSA’s next Executive Director. The Board made the appointment after the European Parliament sent a letter to EFSA Management Board chair Sue Davies, and to European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, ...
What goes on in a concentrated solution of circular polymers?
The experimental and numerical study of the behaviour of polymers in concentrated solutions is a line of research that is still highly active. In the past, it enabled us to understand why materials like rubber have certain elastic properties. A distinctive feature of these systems is that the ...
The Kondo effect can improve a molecule's conductivity
Silicon-based electronics has certain limits, in the physical sense of the word: this type of circuit can never become "nano" because of the physical laws governing the flow of electrons. This imposes a halt to the process of miniaturization of electronic devices. One of the possible solutions is ...
EFSA is launching a public consultation on its draft assessment of the human health risks posed by exposure to bisphenol A (BPA). The Authority has undertaken a comprehensive review of scientific literature and previous risk assessments from expert bodies on BPA. All stakeholders and interested ...
