Researchers Discover Efficient Terahertz Emission from 2D Arrays of Gold Split-Ring Resonator Metamaterials

Researchers Discover Efficient Terahertz Emission from 2D Arrays of Gold Split-Ring Resonator Metamaterials

The Science
Metamaterials allow design and use of light-matter interactions at a fundamental level. An efficient terahertz emission from two-dimensional arrays of gold split-ring resonator metamaterials was discovered as a result of excitation by a near-infrared pulsed laser. [More]
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]
Anomalous Light-Like Behavior Now Realized in 3D Bulk Material

Anomalous Light-Like Behavior Now Realized in 3D Bulk Material

Electrons were observed to travel in a solid at an unusually high velocity, which remained the same independent of the electron energy. This anomalous light-like behavior is found in special two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, but is now realized in a three-dimensional bulk material. High-resolution angle-resolved electron spectroscopy, stimulated by synchrotron x-ray radiation, was used to substantiate the theoretically predicted exotic electron structure. [More]
