Global scientific team 'visualizes' a new crystallization process (w/ video)
Sometimes engineers invent something before they fully comprehend why it works. To understand the "why," they must often create new tools and techniques in a virtuous cycle that improves the original invention ...
Glasses strong as steel: A fast way to find the best
Scientists at Yale University have devised a dramatically faster way of identifying and characterizing complex alloys known as bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), a versatile type of pliable glass that's stronger than steel.
Researchers develop scalable methods for manufacturing metamaterials
(Phys.org) —Metamaterials, or materials that have had their matter rearranged so they interact with light in specific ways, could be key to making everything from super lenses for satellite surveillance to biosensors that ...
After 13 years, progress in pitch-drop experiment (w/ video)
(Phys.org) —As Cyclone Ita hit northern Australia last weekend, a much slower collision occurred in the world's longest-running lab project, The University of Queensland's Pitch Drop Experiment.
Probing metal solidification nondestructively
(Phys.org) —Los Alamos researchers and collaborators have used nondestructive imaging techniques to study the solidification of metal alloy samples. The team used complementary methods of proton radiography ...
Modification of structural composite materials to create tailored lenses
Work in France is exploring cheap and simple modification of structural composite materials to create tailored lenses for near-field focussing of 60 GHz signals.
Novel technique opens door to better solar cells
A team of scientists, led by Assistant Professor Andrivo Rusydi from the Department of Physics at the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Faculty of Science, has successfully developed a technique to ...
