A new method for atomic-resolution electron microscopes

Electron lens formed by light

13-Apr-2022

Electron microscopy enables researchers to visualize tiny objects such as viruses, the fine structures of semiconductor devices, and even atoms arranged on a material surface. Focusing down the electron beam to the size of an atom is vital for achieving such high spatial resolution. However, when ...

Visualizing the invisible

A new model to aid interpretation of atomic resolution molecular images

31-Mar-2022

There are multiple ways to create two- and three-dimensional models of atoms and molecules. With the advent of cutting-edge apparatus that can image samples at the atomic scale, scientists found that traditional molecular models did not fit the images they saw. Researchers have devised a better ...

Carbon molecular sieve integrated graphene sensor

New paradigm in atmospheric gas sensing and molecular identification

21-Mar-2022

Graphene, an atomic-thick sheet of carbon has found immense applications in gas sensors due to its single-molecule sensitivity, low-noise levels, and high carrier density. However, graphene’s much-heralded sensitivity also means it is inherently non-selective to any gas. Hence, it easily gets ...

Seeing below the surface of bimetallic nanoparticles

New technique for tracking the synthesis of core–shell bimetallic nanoparticles

07-Mar-2022

Nanoparticles are important in many disciplines because their high surface area compared with their volume gives them interesting properties. Continued development of analytical methods for nanoparticles is therefore crucial. Researchers from Osaka University have reported a way of characterizing ...

New study shows novel crystal structure for hydrogen under high pressure

Researchers identify a potential crystal phase for hydrogen solidified at extreme pressures using data science and supercomputer simulations

18-Jan-2022

Elements in the periodic table can take up multiple forms. Carbon, for example, exists as diamond or graphite depending on the environmental conditions at the time of formation. Crystal structures that have been formed in ultra-high-pressure environments are particularly important as they provide ...

A single molecule makes a big splash in the understanding of the two types of water

“Because water plays such an important role in chemistry and biology, and even in understanding our universe, we expect our findings to have a wide-ranging impact”

10-Jan-2022

It plays a fundamental role in human existence and is a major component of our universe, yet there are still things we don’t understand about water. To address the knowledge gaps, a collaborative team of Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, and Tohoku ...
