2-D material has space vehicle applications

A new study from The Australian National University (ANU) has found a number of 2-D materials can not only withstand being sent into space, but potentially thrive in the harsh conditions.

First study of terahertz radiation in liquids

A research team from ITMO University and the University of Rochester (U.S.) conducted a study on the formation of terahertz radiation in liquids. Previously, the generation of such radiation in a liquid medium was considered ...

Innovative detectors quickly pinpoint radiation source

Innovative "lighthouse" detectors that use a sweeping beam to quickly pinpoint a radiation source in seconds are reducing radiation exposure for workers and opening up new areas for robotic monitoring to avoid potential hazards.

Crystals in a pink X-ray beam

A newly developed experimental set-up allows the X-ray structure determination of biomolecules such as proteins with far smaller samples and shorter exposure times than before. At so-called synchrotron sources, protein crystal ...

Vortex photons from electrons in circular motion

Researchers at IMS and their coworkers have shown theoretically and experimentally that a high energy electron in circular/spiral motion radiates vortex photons from the radio wavelength to gamma rays. This greatly broadens ...

New technique 'sees' radioactive material even after it's gone

A new technique allows researchers to characterize nuclear material that was in a location even after the nuclear material has been removed – a finding that has significant implications for nuclear nonproliferation and ...
