Water splitting observed on the nanometer scale

It is a well-known school experiment: Applying a voltage between two electrodes inserted in water produces molecular hydrogen and oxygen. Researchers seek to make water splitting as energy-efficient as possible to advance ...

Scientists reveal infrared spectroscopy of neutral water dimer

A research team led by Profs. Jiang Ling, Yang Xueming and Zhang Donghui from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with Prof. Li Jun from Tsinghua University, ...

Graphene mapping 50 times faster

Graphene has created high expectations, as a strong, ultrathin, two-dimensional material that could also be the basis for new components in information technology. There is hence a huge need for characterization of graphene ...

Few-cycle pulses break the 300 W barrier

A team led by researchers from the Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI), Laser-Laboratorium Göttingen (LLG) and Active Fiber Systems (AFS) has generated multi-millijoule 3-cycle pulses ...

Watching electrons using extreme ultraviolet light

A new technique developed by a team at MIT can map the complete electronic band structure of materials at high resolution. This capability is usually exclusive to large synchrotron facilities, but now it is available as a ...

Fingerprint spectroscopy within a millisecond

To guarantee high quality pharmaceuticals, manufacturers need not only to control the purity and concentration of their own products, but also those of their suppliers. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied ...
