A breakthrough imaging technique has enabled Cornell University researchers to gain new insights into how tiny ligands bind to the surface of nanoparticles and change a particle's shape.
Scientific substantiation to date indicates that indoor use of Pulze heated tobacco device is unlikely to present an indoor air quality issue or risk to bystanders, especially compared to existing background levels of toxicants, indoor air quality standards and pollutants in urban areas.
The discovery sheds new light on the thousand-year mystery of the supernova from A.D. 1054 that was seen by ancient astronomers, before eventually becoming the Crab Nebula, that we know today.
New mechanism of superconductivity discovered in graphene. Placing a 2D Bose-Einstein condensate in the vicinity of a graphene layer confers superconductivity to the material.
Prof. DU Jiangfeng and his colleges from USTC set the most stringent laboratory constraint on the exotic spin- and velocity-dependent interaction at the micrometer scale. It's a graceful combination of experiment and theory, and it may contribute to the search for dark matter.
The absorption of energy from laser light by free electrons in a liquid has been demonstrated for the first time. Until now, this process was observed only in the gas phase. The findings, led by Graz University of Technology, open new doors for ultra-fast electron microscopy.
For the first time, the long-theorized neutron-clustering effect in nuclear reactors has been demonstrated, which could improve reactor safety and create more accurate simulations, according to a new study recently published in the journal Nature Communications Physics.
The study could have applications in spintronics and quantum computing. It was conducted by an international collaboration and published in Nature. Its first author is a researcher at the University of São Paulo.
A researcher from the University of Tsukuba has introduced a new theory for superconductivity that can better explain the results of recent experiments with high-temperature superconductors. By focusing on the "Berry connection," this work may lead to energy distribution with much less electrical resistance.
University of Tsukuba researchers achieved micrometer spatial resolution for radio-frequency imaging of nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond by enhancing the signal with quantum spin-locking. This work may lead to more accurate material characterization, medical diagnostics, and quantum computers.
