Constant Angle of Curvature Enables Stability of Nanobubbles

Constant Angle of Curvature Enables Stability of Nanobubbles

It was a question that has kept physicists and chemists busy for more than twenty years. Why can tiny bubbles in a liquid supersaturated with gas remain stable for weeks, while according to theoretical expectation they should disappear in a fraction of a second? Prof. dr. ir. Detlef Lohse from the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute found the answer. The research was recently published in the scientific journal Physical Review E (Rapid Communication). [More]

Ingenious Microfluidic Device to Detect and Extract Biomolecules from Fluid Mixtures

Ingenious Microfluidic Device to Detect and Extract Biomolecules from Fluid Mixtures

Employing an ingenious microfluidic design that combines chemical and mechanical properties, a team of Harvard scientists has demonstrated a new way of detecting and extracting biomolecules from fluid mixtures. The approach requires fewer steps, uses less energy, and achieves better performance than several techniques currently in use and could lead to better technologies for medical diagnostics and chemical purification.
