Physico-Chemical Formulation and Microfluidics Help Develop 3d Metamaterials

Physico-Chemical Formulation and Microfluidics Help Develop 3d Metamaterials

Metamaterials have extraordinary properties when it comes to diverting and controlling waves, especially sound and light: for instance, they can make an object invisible, or increase the resolving power of a lens. [More]
Graphene Could Reduce Cost, Complications Involved in X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy

Graphene Could Reduce Cost, Complications Involved in X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is one of the most sensitive and informative surface analysis techniques available. However, XPS requires a high vacuum to operate, which makes analyzing materials in liquid and gaseous environments difficult. [More]
