An Unexpected Finding

In the pursuit of a new class of photovoltaic materials an entirely different discovery was made

22-Aug-2016

In the pursuit of a new class of photovoltaic materials, researchers at UC Santa Barbara happened upon an entirely different discovery that addresses a centuries-old mystery of chemistry: Why does an iodine solution turn blue-black when starch is added to the mix? The exact structural-chemical ...

The dance of atoms

26-Feb-2016

When is a solid not a real solid? When it's a lattice of ultracold atoms held in place not by the covalent and ionic bonds that bind the atoms of "real" solids together -- like your chair or your cellular phone -- but by light waves. "These artificial solids are roughly a hundred million times ...

A sticky situation

11-Aug-2015

Wet adhesion is a true engineering challenge. Marine animals such as mussels, oysters and barnacles are naturally equipped with the means to adhere to rock, buoys and other underwater structures and remain in place no matter how strong the waves and currents. Synthetic wet adhesive materials, on ...

New tabletop detector 'sees' single electrons

Magnet-based setup may help detect the elusive mass of neutrinos

23-Apr-2015

MIT physicists have developed a new tabletop particle detector that is able to identify single electrons in a radioactive gas.As the gas decays and gives off electrons, the detector uses a magnet to trap them in a magnetic bottle. A radio antenna then picks up very weak signals emitted by the ...
