Scientists have succeeded in performing time-resolved measurements of the internal energy distribution of stored clusters. The clusters investigated consisted of four cobalt atoms and an additional electron.
Quark-gluon plasma is formed as a result of high energy collisions of heavy ions. After a collision, for a dozen or so yoctoseconds, this most perfect of all known fluids undergoes rapid hydrodynamic expansion with velocities close to the velocity of light.
Researchers have developed a graphene assembled film that has over 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film - despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene.
Scientists report discovery of 10-nanometer, individual, self-assembled dodecahedral structures ?-12-sided silica cages that could have applications in mesoscale material assembly, as well as medical diagnosis and therapeutics.
Researchers report a lightweight, high nitrogen-doping level carbon nanofiber framework as the current collector for lithium metal anodes, which could restrain the dendrite growth and achieve the uniform lithium deposition.
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous materials that can change the way we capture carbon, filter water, and an array of other applications. Chemists have now found the link between mechanical stability and structure, thus overcoming a significant obstacle in optimizing MOFs.
Researchers more than doubled the ability of a material to convert heat into electricity, which could help reduce the amount of wasted heat, and thus wasted fossil fuel, in daily activities and industries.
