Antimatter helps to unveil the secrets of liquid crystals

The chaos typical of liquid molecules, and the ordering characteristics of crystals. There are states of matter connecting such contradictory features: liquid crystals. Thanks to an innovative application of antimatter, it has been demonstrated that the structures formed by certain molecules of liquid crystals must in fact be different than previously thought.

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.
