Atoms at negative absolute temperature: The hottest systems in the world
(Phys.org)—In cold regions on earth, negative temperatures on the Fahrenheit or Celsius scale can often occur in winter; in physics, however, they were so far impossible. On the absolute temperature scale ...
Water splitting: Plants provide blueprint for cheap hydrogen production
(Phys.org) —The process by which plants convert energy from the sun's rays into chemical 'fuel' has inspired a new way of generating clean, cheap, renewable hydrogen power which could solve looming problems ...
Scientists investigate how ice melts below freezing due to nanowire's pressure
Unfrozen mystery: Water reveals a new secret
Using revolutionary new techniques, a team led by Carnegie's Malcolm Guthrie has made a striking discovery about how ice behaves under pressure, changing ideas that date back almost 50 years. Their findings ...
Champion nano-rust for producing solar hydrogen
EPFL and Technion researchers have figured out the "champion" nanostructures able to produce hydrogen in the most environmentally friendly and cheap manner, by simply using daylight.
Glass has potential to be stronger, researchers say
(Phys.org)—Glass is strong enough for so much: windshields, buildings and many other things that need to handle high stress without breaking. But scientists who look at the structure of glass strictly by ...
