It's not quite the Ant-Man suit, but the system produces 3-D structures one thousandth the size of the originals
In a paper published Apr. 21 in Science, Argonne and Temple University researchers describe the behavior of metal nanoparticles by watching them in real time as they oxidized
Argonne National Laboratory researchers have discovered a new approach to detail the formation of material changes at the atomic scale and in near-real time
Proposed model also contributes to the understanding of the reflective layering in the skin of some organisms
In the world of catalytic science and technology, the hunt is always on for catalysts that are inexpensive, highly active, and environmentally friendly
X-ray laser measures atomic-scale details of how ring-shaped gas molecule breaks open, unravels.
The field of metamaterials is all about making structures that have physical properties that aren’t found in nature. Predicting what kinds of structures would have those traits is one challenge; physically fabricating them is quite another, as they often require precise arrangement of constituent materials on the smallest scales.
Brookhaven Lab and Stony Brook University scientists use x-rays to map internal atomic transformations and advance promising lithium-based batteries.
Since the 1850s scientists have known that crystalline materials are organized into 14 different basic lattice structures. However, a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) now reports that it has discovered an entirely new form of crystalline order that simultaneously exhibits both crystal and polycrystalline properties, which they describe as “interlaced crystals.”
Novel method gives scientists ability to peer inside batteries, fuel cells, and other devices as they operate to gain insight that could improve performance.
