A hybrid material to spot organic contaminants in the atmosphere

31-Jul-2017

The development of hybrid materials is an emerging field in materials science. As the researcher explained, the interest in these materials stems from "the success in combining that stability of inorganic components with the versatility of organic components. Blending them causes the properties ...

High-speed FM-AFM and simulation reveal atomistic dissolution processes of calcite in water

28-Jul-2017

Calcite is one of the most abundant components of the Earth crust, the outer-most layer of the Earth, constituting as the largest carbon reservoir in the global carbon cycle in nature. Thus, large-scale dissolution of calcite would give an enormous impact on the weather, geography, aquatic ...

3-D imaging of surface chemistry in confinement

24-Jul-2017

EPFL researchers have developed an optical imaging tool to visualize surface chemistry in real time. They imaged the interfacial chemistry in the microscopically confined geometry of a simple glass micro-capillary. The glass is covered with hydroxyl (-OH) groups that can lose a proton - a ...

Scanning the surface of lithium titanate

07-Jul-2017

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tohoku University and the University of Tokyo have applied advanced scanning methods to visualize the previously unexplored surface of a superconductor: lithium titanate (LiTi2O4). LiTi2O4 is the only known example of a so-called spinel oxide ...

Seeing the colored light

Bee brains open way for better cameras

05-Jul-2017

New research into the way that honeybees see colour could pave the way for more accurate cameras in phones, drones and robots. Identifying colour in complex outdoor environments is extremely difficult because the colour of light is continuously changing. Researchers in Melbourne, Australia, ...

New technique 'sees' radioactive material even after it's gone

05-Jul-2017

A new technique allows researchers to characterize nuclear material that was in a location even after the nuclear material has been removed - a finding that has significant implications for nuclear nonproliferation and security applications. "Basically, we can see nuclear material that is no ...

More precise diagnostics for improved cancer outcomes

03-Jul-2017

An important factor in fighting cancer is the speed at which the disease can be identified, diagnosed and treated. The current standard involves a patient feeling ill or a physician seeing signs of a tumor. These indicators lead to more precise diagnoses via blood tests, x-rays or MRI imaging. ...

A cellular guillotine for studying single-cell wound repair

29-Jun-2017

While doing research at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts, Sindy Tang learned of a remarkable organism: Stentor coeruleus. It's a single-celled, free-living freshwater organism, shaped like a trumpet and big enough to see with the naked eye. And, to Tang's amazement, if ...
