Researchers have developed a new mathematical model that enables even slight changes in carbon-based materials to be predicted, paving the way for exciting properties.
Halide perovskite solar cells are the subject of intense research interest due to the attractive properties of perovskite; high carrier mobilities, large absorption coefficients, tuneable bandgaps, and long carrier diffusion lengths.
Researchers from New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE, have used, for the first time, nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to identify the structure of a particular nanobody called Nb23.
A team of scientists led by the Department of Applied Physics at Osaka University, the Department of Physics and Electronics at Osaka Prefecture University, and the Department of Materials Chemistry at Nagoya University used photoinduced force microscopy to map out the forces acting on quantum dots in three dimensions.
Oxford Instruments plc, a leading provider of high-technology solutions, information and services for industry and research, today announces the acquisition of WITec Wissenschaftliche Instrumente und Technologie GmbH, a leading provider of Raman microscopy imaging solutions, based in Ulm, Germany, for a cash-free, debt-free consideration of €42m, of which €5m is conditional on trading performance over a period of 12 months following completion.
The management team of WITec GmbH is proud to announce that WITec was acquired by Oxford Instruments plc, a UK based company that has a great reputation in the scientific community, and in the future will be part of their Materials Analysis Group.
For the first time, an interdisciplinary group from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces has developed a laser-driven technology that allows them to make nanoparticles like nickel oxides, cobalt, and copper.
When doctors or scientists want to peer into living tissue, there's always a trade-off between how deep they can probe and how clear a picture they can get.
From the time molecular reactions were estimated and the existence of molecules was demonstrated, human beings have always wanted to visually watch the way these events continue.
Carbon occurs in different forms in nature. Apart from graphite and diamond, there are some recently discovered forms with surprising properties.
