Nanometre gaps can crystallise liquids

X-ray examination shows surprising coexistence of liquid and crystalline form

14-May-2019

Very narrow gaps make liquids crystallise partially. X-ray investigations at DESY show that in gaps just a few molecule diameters wide both, liquid and crystal properties of a material can exist at the same time. The observation of this coexistence is important for all liquids in very small ...

Layered liquids arrange nanoparticles into useful configurations

Theoretical approach for assembling nanoparticles uses an idea similar to separated vinaigrettes

28-Mar-2019

Materials scientists at Duke University have theorized a new "oil-and-vinegar" approach to engineering self-assembling materials of unusual architectures made out of spherical nanoparticles. The resulting structures could prove useful to applications in optics, plasmonics, electronics and ...

Materials could delay frost up to 300 times longer than existing anti-icing coatings

26-Mar-2019

Most techniques to prevent frost and ice formation on surfaces rely heavily on heating or liquid chemicals that need to be repeatedly reapplied because they easily wash away. Even advanced anti-icing materials have problems functioning under conditions of high humidity and subzero conditions, ...

'Dancing' holes in droplets submerged in water-ethanol mixtures

03-Jul-2018

Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have observed the formation of holes that move by themselves in droplets of ionic liquids (IL) sitting inside water-ethanol mixtures. This curious, complex phenomenon is driven by an interplay between how ionic liquids dissolve, and how the boundary ...

Repellent research: Ship coatings to reduce fuel, energy costs

25-Jun-2018

It can repel water, oil, alcohol and even peanut butter. And it might save the U.S. Navy millions of dollars in ship fuel costs, reduce the amount of energy that vessels consume and improve operational efficiency. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is sponsoring work by Dr. Anish Tuteja, an ...

Un-mixing using lasers to make new crystals

08-Mar-2018

Scientists have managed to separate two liquids in a mixture using a laser, which they claim will lead to new ways of manipulating matter and creating crystals for industry. Researchers from the University of Glasgow present a novel approach to separate and create new phases using a simple laser. ...

An ultradilute quantum liquid made from ultra-cold atoms

18-Dec-2017

Liquids and gases are two different phases of matter that are part of our everyday life. While gases are dilute, compressible and take the size of their container, liquids are dense, have a fixed volume and in small quantities form droplets. These are ensembles of particles that remain bound by ...

Coffee physics

15-Dec-2017

For anyone who has marveled at the richly colored layers in a cafe latte, you're not alone. Princeton researchers, likewise intrigued, have now revealed how this tiered structure develops when espresso is poured into hot milk. "The structure formation in a latte is surprising because it evolves ...

Why can hot water freeze faster than cold water?

16-Nov-2017

The researchers have confirmed how this phenomenon occurs in granular fluids, that is, those composed of particles that are very small and interact among those that lose part of their kinetic energy. Thanks to this theoretical characterization, "we can simulate on a computer and make analytical ...

Studies of 'amorphous ice' reveal hidden order in glass

05-Oct-2017

The waves at the bottom of old window panes are a reminder that solid glass behaves like a very slow-moving liquid. Now a new study challenges the notion that the atomic structure of glass is indistinguishable from that of a liquid ­- at least for a certain kind of glass called "amorphous ice" ...
