A novel uniform coating process of p-ALD

Scientists have devised a clever combination of materials - when used during the thin-film growth process - to reveal that particle atomic layer deposition, or p-ALD, deposits a uniform nanometer-thick shell on core particles regardless of core size, a discovery having significant impacts for many applications since most large scale powder production techniques form powder batches that are made up of a range of particles sizes.

Making electronics out of coal

Instead of just setting it afire, thus ignoring the molecular complexity of this highly varied material, researchers say we should be harnessing the real value of that diversity and complex chemistry.

Measuring the heat capacity of condensed light

Liquid water is a very good heat storage medium - anyone with a Thermos bottle knows that. However, as soon as water boils or freezes, its storage capacity drops precipitously. Physicists have now observed very similar behavior in a gas of light particles.
