An international research team featuring two Skoltech scientists has experimentally demonstrated that a long-standing explanation for low energy efficiency in lithium-ion batteries does not hold.
The efficient reduction of nitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3) has been a major challenge for decades as it is difficult to break the inert N=N bond due to its extremely large bond energy of 940.95 kJ mol–1.
Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere can dissolve in oceans, lakes and ponds, forming bicarbonate ions and other compounds that change water chemistry, with possible harmful effects on aquatic organisms.
In the past few years, a research group with expertise in electron microscopy and catalysis has been involved in identifying the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms in nanoparticle catalysts in chemical processes.
Motion control, piezo tech and nanopositioning systems expert PI (Physik Instrumente) has opened a new Tech Center in Silicon Valley as its most recent expansion in the US, to better support and meet the needs of new and existing customers.
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
The structure of lead sulfide nanoparticles frequently varies as they arrange themselves to develop organized superlattices. This phenomenon was observed in an experimental study at X-ray source PETRA III at DeutschesElektronen-Synchrotron (DESY).
NevadaNano, the world’s leading innovator in gas detection sensor technology, announced that PemTech added NevadaNano’s Molecular Property Spectrometer™ technology into its Ultra1000 Series Fixed Gas Sensors.
A new state-of-the-art instrument has been built by a team from Swansea University’s Nanomaterials Laboratory which will help scientists fight against climate change, microbial infection and other major global challenges.
A team of scientists has uncovered how heavy, motorized objects climb steep slopes--a newly discovered mechanism that also mimics how rock climbers navigate inclines.
