The hidden nanoworld of ice crystals: Revealing the dynamic behavior of quasi-liquid layers
Crystals take a chill pill: A thermomechanical theory of low-temperature melting
The finer details of rust
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology have been studying the behavior of iron oxide surfaces. The atomic structure of iron oxide, which had been assumed to be well-established, turned out to be ...

Water waves exhibit negative gravity near a periodic array of buoys
Researchers discover promising hydrogen storage material
Asteroid impacts on Earth make structurally bizarre diamonds
(Phys.org) —Scientists have argued for half a century about the existence of a form of diamond called lonsdaleite, which is associated with impacts by meteorites and asteroids. A group of scientists based ...
X-ray laser as ultra slow-motion camera: New study paves the way for nano-movies of biomolecules
An international team, including scientists from DESY, has caught a light sensitive biomolecule at work with an X-ray laser. The study proves that X-ray lasers can capture the fast dynamics of biomolecules in ultra slow-motion, ...
High-purity hydrogen generated from a single device
Where are helium atoms in molecule?
Frankfurt physicists have once again contributed to resolving a disputed matter of theoretical physics. Science has long since known that, contrary to the old school of thought, helium forms molecules of two, three or even ...
Deforming and compacting chromium-tungsten powders to create stronger metals
New tungsten alloys being developed in the Schuh Group at MIT could potentially replace depleted uranium in armor-piercing projectiles. Fourth-year materials science and engineering graduate student Zachary ...
Buckle up for more big news from InSPACE's nano-world
They say good things come in small packages; sometimes so do exciting new discoveries.
Scientists create one-dimensional ferroelectric ice
Researchers turn cement into metal
(Phys.org) —In a move that would make the Alchemists of King Arthur's time green with envy, scientists have unraveled the formula for turning liquid cement into liquid metal. This makes cement a semi-conductor ...
