Watching the hidden life of materials

Ultrafast electron diffraction experiments open a new window on the microscopic world

29-10-2014

Researchers at McGill University have succeeded in simultaneously observing the reorganizations of atomic positions and electron distribution during the transformation of the “smart material” vanadium dioxide (VO2) from a semiconductor into a metal – in a timeframe a trillion times faster than ...

Physicists render usable method for detecting extremely rare inert gas isotopes for water dating

17-10-2014

In the earth and environmental sciences, radioactive isotopes, atom variants that decay over time, play a major role in age determination. A radioactive isotope of the inert gas argon (39Ar), for example, is used to determine the age of water or ice. Such isotopes are extremely rare, however – ...
