A coating so thin it's invisible to the human eye has been shown to make copper nearly 100 times more resistant to corrosion, creating tremendous potential for metal protection even in harsh environments.
Physikern der Universität Würzburg ist es gelungen, Licht auf einen unvorstellbar kleinen Bereich zu konzentrieren. Geholfen hat ihnen dabei ein Effekt, der auch dann auftritt, wenn Kaffee verschüttet wird.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique to identify the proteins secreted by a cell. The new approach should help researchers collect precise data on cell biology, which is critical in fields ranging from zoology to cancer research.
A University of Arkansas physicist and his colleagues have examined the lower limits of novel materials called complex oxides and discovered that unlike conventional semiconductors the materials not only conduct electricity, but also develop unusual magnetic properties.
