New study on a recently discovered chlorophyll molecule could be key to better solar cells

Scientists uncover location and functions of a new type of chlorophyll molecule for the first time

23-Jan-2020

All living organisms need energy for their survival, and this energy indirectly comes from the sun. Some organisms, such as plants, cyanobacteria, and algae, are capable of directly converting this light energy into chemical energy via a process called "photosynthesis". These photosynthetic ...

New arrival in the particle zoo - its an dibaryon

Exotic 'di-Omega' particle predicted

28-May-2018

Based on complex simulations of quantum chromodynamics performed using the K computer, one of the most powerful computers in the world, the HAL QCD Collaboration, made up of scientists from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-based Science and the RIKEN Interdisciplinary Theoretical and ...

Neutron-rich nucleus shapeshifts between a rugby ball and a discus

27-Jun-2017

An international team led by scientists from IPN Orsay (CNRS/Université Paris-Sud), CEA, and RIKEN (Japan) has performed the first spectroscopy of the extremely neutron-rich isotopes krypton 98 and 100. This experiment showed that there are two coexisting, competing quantum shapes at low energy ...

Learning from the mussel, scientists create a biologically active titanium surface

11-Jul-2016

Titanium is used medically in applications such as artificial joints and dental implants. While it is strong and is not harmful to tissues, the metal lacks some of the beneficial biological properties of natural tissues such as bones and natural teeth. Now, based on insights from mussels--which ...

Clarifying the role of magnetism in high-temperature superconductors

27-Jan-2016

A collaboration of scientists from the RIKEN SPring-8 Center, Osaka University, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, and the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute have published research clarifying the role of magnetism in a new type of high-temperature superconductor. The research gives us a ...

It's official! Element 113 was discovered at RIKEN

06-Jan-2016

Element 113, discovered by a RIKEN group led by Kosuke Morita, has become the first element on the periodic table found in Asia. Rewarding nearly a decade of painstaking work by Morita's group, a Joint Working Party of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and ...

Graphene semiconductors by manipulated wrinkles

26-Oct-2015

Graphene has generally been described as a two-dimensional structure--a single sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a regular structure--but the reality is not so simple. In reality, graphene can form wrinkles which make the structure more complicated, potentially being applied to device systems. ...

Protons and antiprotons appear to be true mirror images

14-Aug-2015

CPT invariance means that a system remains unchanged if three fundamental properties are reversed - C (charge), which distinguishes matter from antimatter, P (parity), which implies a 180 degree flip in space, and T (time). It is a central tenet of the standard model, and implies that antimatter ...

New hydrogel stretches and contracts like a heat-driven muscle

12-Aug-2015

In research a team led by scientists from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan has developed a new hydrogel that works like an artificial muscle - quickly stretching and contracting in response to changing temperature. They have also managed to use the polymer to build an ...

Tunneling out of the surface

14-Jul-2015

A research team comprising scientists from Tohoku University, RIKEN, the University of Tokyo, Chiba University and University College London have discovered a new chemical reaction pathway on titanium dioxide (TiO2), an important photocatalytic material. The reaction mechanism, reported in ACS ...
