How to melt gold at room temperature

21-Nov-2018

When the tension rises, unexpected things can happen - not least when it comes to gold atoms. Researchers from, among others, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have now managed, for the first time, to make the surface of a gold object melt at room temperature. Ludvig de Knoop, from ...

Enhancing the quantum sensing capabilities of diamond

24-Nov-2017

Researchers have discovered that dense ensembles of quantum spins can be created in diamond with high resolution using an electron microscopes, paving the way for enhanced sensors and resources for quantum technologies. Diamonds are made of carbon atoms in a crystalline structure, but if a carbon ...

Potential future data storage at domain boundaries

Scientists discover polar domain walls in antiferroelectric materials

16-Jan-2014

Storing more and more in an ever-smaller space – what sounds impossible is in fact just part of the daily routine in information technology, where for decades, increasing amounts of data have been successfully stored on media with ever higher densities. An international team, including ...

Butterfly wings' 'art of blackness' could boost production of green fuels

29-Mar-2012

Butterfly wings may rank among the most delicate structures in nature, but they have given researchers powerful inspiration for new technology that doubles production of hydrogen gas — a green fuel of the future — from water and sunlight. The researchers presented their findings at the American ...

Electrons catch a wave

Physicists use ultrashort laser pulses to drive and accelerate electrons out of nanotips

12-Mar-2012

In 1905 Albert Einstein transformed physics with his explanation of the famous photoelectric effect. In his Nobel-Prize-winning work, Einstein abandoned classical principles and introduced the concept of light particles, known today as photons, to describe light-induced electron emission from ...

Researchers at Mainz University make visible the structure of the smallest crystals

27-Sep-2011

A radical new way of making structures visible at the nano level has been developed at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU). This new method makes it possible to determine with precision the arrangement of atoms and molecules in a diverse range of materials from cement to pharmaceuticals. ...

Tiny wires change behavior at nanoscale

Rice University researchers surprised to see twin-induced brittle-like fractures in gold nanowires

02-Sep-2011

Thin gold wires often used in high-end electronic applications are wonderfully flexible as well as conductive. But those qualities don't necessarily apply to the same wires at the nanoscale. A new study from Rice University finds gold wires less than 20 nanometers wide can become "brittle-like" ...

SALVE Project Enters Second Phase

Successful evaluation phase prompts University of Ulm and Carl Zeiss to continue with their joint venture to develop a high-performance transmission electron microscope

16-Aug-2011

Following the successful completion of a two-year evaluation phase, the University of Ulm, the Heidelberg-based company CEOS GmbH and Carl Zeiss Nano Technology Systems have signed an agreement to embark on the next phase of the SALVE project. SALVE – which stands for Sub-Angstrom Low Voltage ...

Researchers image atomic structural changes that control properties of sapphires

02-Dec-2010

Materials scientists from Case Western Reserve University and the Institute of Solid State Research in Jülich, Germany have produced particularly clear changes in the atomic structure of sapphire following deformation at high temperatures. Peering through an electron microscope down to a level ...

Novel fuel cell catalyst lowers need for precious metal

25-Nov-2010

Fuel cells could create a breakthrough for electric cars, because refuelling them is fast and easy, just like your traditional gas guzzler. But there's an obstacle. Current fuel cells need platinum in order to work. And that's expensive. Now chemists from Copenhagen, Potsdam and Hanau have taken ...
