April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Bazinga! A team of researchers from the University of Melbourne and RMIT University has postulated an alternative theory for the start of the Universe. Instead of a Big Bang, they say the Universe more likely started with a Big Freeze. The research team suggests that our understanding of the Universe could be revolutionized by investigating the cracks and crevices common to all crystals, including ice. The Big Bang theory is a...

Through the fundamental work carried out by a team from the University of Geneva and the NCCR Chemical Biology, chemists may be able to attain more complex supramolecular structures Nature proves every day that it is both complex and efficient. Organic chemists are envious of it; their conventional tools confine them to simpler achievements. Thanks to the work of professor Stefan Matile's team from the University of Geneva, these limitations could become a thing of the past. His...

Extreme Plasma Theories Are Being Put To The Test
2012-08-07 13:20:41

The first controlled studies of extremely hot, dense matter have overthrown the widely accepted 50-year old model used to explain how ions influence each other's behavior in a dense plasma. The results should benefit a wide range of fields, from research aimed at tapping nuclear fusion as an energy source to understanding the inner workings of stars. The study also demonstrates the unique capabilities of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser at the U.S. Department of Energy...

Looking Directly At Graphene
2012-08-02 10:54:18

Direct Imaging by Berkeley Lab Researchers Confirms the Importance of Electron-Electron Interactions in Graphene Perhaps no other material is generating as much excitement in the electronics world as graphene, sheets of pure carbon just one atom thick through which electrons can race at nearly the speed of light — 100 times faster than they move through silicon. Superthin, superstrong, superflexible and superfast as an electrical conductor, graphene has been touted as a potential...
