Spinout seeks to transform food safety testing

"This is a $10 billion market and everyone knows it." Those are the words of Chris Hartshorn, CEO of a new MIT spinout—Xibus Systems—that is aiming to make a splash in the food industry with their new food safety sensor.

Balloon-borne telescope looks for cosmic gamma rays

Cosmic gamma rays can provide us with important insights into high-energy phenomena in our universe. The GRAINE (Gamma-Ray Astro-Imager with Nuclear Emulsion) collaboration aims to record high-energy cosmic gamma rays at ...

New avenue for the large-scale synthesis of Janus particles

Chinese researchers have developed an emulsion interfacial polymerization method to fabricate Janus particles exhibiting chemical and topological anisotropy. The results were published in the journal Science Advances in an ...

New technology reduces transportation costs of heavy oil

The Mexican Oil Institute (IMP) has developed biosurfactants that reduce oil viscosity and lower operating costs. The technology allows for operational flexibility in the transport of crude oil through ducts from the production ...

Emulsion

An emulsion ( /ɨˈmʌlʃən/)is a mixture of two or more liquids that are normally immiscible (un-blendable). Emulsions are part of a more general class of two-phase systems of matter called colloids. Although the terms colloid and emulsion are sometimes used interchangeably, emulsion is used when both the dispersed and the continuous phase are liquid. In an emulsion, one liquid (the dispersed phase) is dispersed in the other (the continuous phase). Examples of emulsions include vinaigrettes, milk, and some cutting fluids for metal working. The photo-sensitive side of photographic film is an example of a colloid.
