Best image yet of atoms moving in real time produced (w/ video)
Call it the ultimate nature documentary. Scientists at the University of Toronto have recorded atomic motions in real time, offering a glimpse into the very essence of chemistry and biology at the atomic level. Their recording ...
Researchers devise means to combine scanning tunneling microscopy and infrared spectroscopy
Spin waves revealed in two-dimensional high-temperature superconductors
(Phys.org)—As electricity travels from power plants and into homes, a large amount of the initial energy dissipates as heat along the way. This inefficiency comes from a resistance to current inherent to ...
Researchers use Raman spectroscopy and STM to allow chemical mapping of molecules to 1nm resolution
Every atom counts in graphene formation
(Phys.org)—Like tiny ships finding port in a storm, carbon atoms dock with the greater island of graphene in a predictable manner. But until recent research by scientists at Rice University, nobody had ...
