Cornell Receives NSF Grant to Acquire Cryogenic, Aberration-Corrected Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope

Cornell Receives NSF Grant to Acquire Cryogenic, Aberration-Corrected Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope

A first-of-its-kind electron microscope, which will allow materials to be studied in their natural environments using an electron beam focused down to a subatomic spot, is coming to Cornell. [More]
South Dakota Scientists to Examine Living Cells at Biochemical Spatio-temporal NeTwork Resource

South Dakota Scientists to Examine Living Cells at Biochemical Spatio-temporal NeTwork Resource

Scientists in South Dakota will examine living cells at a molecular level to find out how cells become cancerous, how viruses attack animals and humans and how plants can capture more nitrogen through a new collaborative research center called Biochemical Spatio-temporal NeTwork Resource (BioSNTR).

Acoustic Tweezers Manipulate Protein Crystals for X-ray Crystallography

Acoustic Tweezers Manipulate Protein Crystals for X-ray Crystallography

A device for precisely positioning small objects using acoustic waves has now been used to position fragile protein crystals a few micrometers or less in size in the path of a crystallography X-ray beam. This technique will make it possible to collect data on previously intractable samples and will expand the scope of what is now possible with X-ray crystallography. [More]

New Method to Monitor Properties of Microscopic Particles During a Chemical Reaction

New Method to Monitor Properties of Microscopic Particles During a Chemical Reaction

A team of NYU physicists has developed a method to monitor the properties of microscopic particles as they grow within a chemical reaction vessel, creating new opportunities to improve the quality and consistency of a wide range of industrial and consumer products. Their work, which appears as a cover story in the journal Soft Matter, offers benefits for commodities ranging from food and pharmaceuticals to perfumes and cosmetics. [More]

NT-MDT Installs Unique AFM with RAMAN, TERS, and SNOM Capabilities at University of Limerick

The University of Limerick has received one of Europe's most powerful microscopes supported by NT-MDT, a world-leading manufacturer of atomic force based microscopes (AFM). NT-MDT recently installed a unique Atomic Force Microscope with RAMAN, TERS, and SNOM capabilities (NTEGRA Spectra). [More]
Negatively Charged Molecules Control the Where, When, and How of Calcium Carbonate Formation

Negatively Charged Molecules Control the Where, When, and How of Calcium Carbonate Formation

Nature packs away carbon in chalk, shells and rocks made by marine organisms that crystallize calcium carbonate. Now, research suggests that the soft, organic scaffolds in which such crystals form guide crystallization by soaking up the calcium like an "ion sponge," according to new work in Nature Materials. Understanding the process better may help researchers develop advanced materials for energy and environmental uses, such as for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. [More]
Nacre-Inspired Nanocomposite Has Glass-Like Transparency and High Gas Barrier

Nacre-Inspired Nanocomposite Has Glass-Like Transparency and High Gas Barrier

Natural materials have extraordinary mechanical properties, which are based on sophisticated arrangements and combinations of multiple building blocks. One key aspect of today’s materials research therefore is to develop bio-inspired materials reaching to the properties of natural materials – or even exceeding those in certain functionalities.
