A first-of-its-kind x-ray instrument for frontier research with high-brightness x-rays is now in operation at Argonne National Laboratory. The new device utilizes a unique superconducting technology that speeds electrons on a path much like that of a rollercoaster.
Nearly a hundred years ago, Albert Einstein and Satyendra Nath Bose predicted that quantum mechanics can force a large number of particles to behave in concert as if they were only a single particle.
Atoms are composed of electrons moving around a central nucleus they are bound to. The electrons can also be torn away, overcoming the confining force of their nucleus, using the powerful electric field of a laser.
A clever combination of novel technologies enables us to study promising materials for the electronics of tomorrow. Over the past decades, computers have become faster and faster and hard disks and storage chips have reached enormous capacities.

A team of researchers are using FLIR thermal imaging cameras to study the behavior of bats residing in the Puerto Pricesa Underground River cave system in the Philippines. The hope is that the technology will provide insight into the size and identity of the bat colony, and knowledge on how to better preserve the species for years to come.
The ISOMEDIA company offers after-market services for mobile devices in southern Germany. The business was launched as a PC and mobile phone repair center in Stuttgart. This case study explains how ISOMEDIA uses thermal imaging, with the FLIR ETS320 in particular, to speed up their repair work.
Infections in joint replacement surgery are a major factor in the failure of the used metal implants, especially when more strains of bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Heating up the joints would eliminate bacteria and yeast, but the concern is whether or not this can be done in a non-invasive fashion. Bart Pijls, MD, PhD, from the Leiden University Medical Center’s (LUMC) Department of Orthopedic Surgery believes the solution could be electromagnetic induction. He is working in conjunction with the medical center’s Department of Microbiology to study electromagnetic induction with the help of FLIR’s thermal imaging technologies.
Refrigerant devices typically use fluid coolants turned into gases to cool things down. These gases, however, may become harmful to the environment, so research is being done on the use of solid materials as a substitute to cool down food, beverages, medicine, and even electronic devices. Researchers at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) are making use of FLIR’s thermal imaging cameras to study the subject.
With the help of ultrafast spectroscopy and quantum mechanical calculations, LMU researchers have characterized the complete rotational cycle of the light-driven, chemical motor molecule hemithioindigo.
A study published in Science reports on how ICFO researchers, with MIT and Univ. of Minho, are able to confine and guide light down to a space of 1-atom thick in dimension. All electronic devices in our daily lives - computers, smartphones etc. – consist of billions of transistors, the key building block invented in Bell Labs in the late 1940s.
For the first time, scientists have successfully created optically active, chiral gold nanoparticles using amino acids and peptides. Many chemicals significant to life have mirror-image twins (left-handed and right-handed structures), a characteristic that is conventionally called chirality.
Physicists at the University of Warwick have published new research in the Journal Science (today 19th April 2018 - via the journal’s First Release pages) that could literally squeeze more power out of solar cells by physically deforming each of the crystals in the semiconductors used by photovoltaic cells.
A dash of salt can simplify the creation of two-dimensional materials, and thanks to Rice University scientists, the reason is becoming clear.
