The coldest chemical reaction

With ultracold chemistry, researchers get a first look at exactly what happens during a chemical reaction

02-Dec-2019

The coldest chemical reaction in the known universe took place in what appears to be a chaotic mess of lasers. The appearance deceives: Deep within that painstakingly organized chaos, in temperatures millions of times colder than interstellar space, Kang-Kuen Ni achieved a feat of precision. ...

Carbon nanotubes show a love/hate relationship with water

14-Nov-2019

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are valuable for a wide variety of applications. Made of graphene sheets rolled into tubes 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, CNTs have an exceptional strength-to-mass ratio and excellent thermal and electrical properties. These features make them ideal for a range of ...
