Seeing energized light-active molecules proves quick work for scientists

To understand how molecules undergo light-driven chemical transformations, scientists need to be able to follow the atoms and electrons within the energized molecule as it gains and loses energy. In a recent study, a team of researchers used ultrafast high-intensity pulsed X-rays to take molecular snapshots of these molecules.

Containing 'electromagnetic pollution' with MXenes

New findings suggest that a few-atoms thin titanium carbide, one of about 20 two-dimensional materials of MXene family, can be more effective at blocking and containing electromagnetic interference, with the added benefit of being extremely thin and easily applied in a coating just by spraying it onto any surface - like paint.
