Where did those electrons go? X-ray measurements solve decades-old mystery

There's been an unsolved mystery associated with mixed valence compounds: When the valence state of an element in these compounds changes with increased temperature, the number of electrons associated with that element decreases, as well. But just where do those electrons go? Using a combination of state-of-the-art tools, researchers have come up with the answer.

Beyond good vibrations: New insights into metamaterial magic

Metamaterials have amazing potential--think invisibility cloaks and perfect lenses - but they are more likely to be found in a Harry Potter novel than a lab. To help bring them closer to reality, researchers have gone back to basics and demonstrated that the fundamental physics of metamaterials is more complex than scientists once thought.
