Hot nanoparticles produce giant and explosive bubbles

When gold nano particles in water are illuminated by a laser, they get very hot: well above the boiling point of water. The formation of vapour bubbles caused by this, is well-known. New experiments, however, using a very high speed camera, now show that before this, a bubble is formed that is much larger and, subsequently, explodes violently.

Wall of sound

Scientists have been using sound to levitate small objects for 30 years, but researchers have improved upon this container-free approach. They have found a way to enable experiments that use less material, decreasing costs and opening the door to new research.
