Drexel University researchers are turning some of the basic tenets of chemistry and physics upside down to cut a trail toward the discovery of a new set of materials. They’re called “polar metals” and, according to many of the scientific principles that govern the behavior of atoms, they probably shouldn’t exist. James Rondinelli, PhD, a professor in the College of Engineering, and Danilo Puggioni, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in the College, have shed light on this rare breed of...

Technische Universitaet Muenchen Tessellation patterns that have fascinated mathematicians since Johannes Kepler worked out their systematics 400 years ago -- and that more recently have caught the eye of both artists and crystallographers -- can now be seen in the laboratory. They first took shape on a surface more perfectly two-dimensional than any sheet of writing paper, a single layer of atoms and molecules atop an atomically smooth substrate. Physicists coaxed these so-called Kepler...

New Insights Into Big Bang From Keck Observatory
2013-06-06 13:09:02

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The big bang theory is the leading theory to explain the origin of the Universe. While challengers exist, no other well-developed theory has substantiated itself as a serious contender. But this does not mean that the big bang is without its problems. One issue that has plagued our origins story is the relative abundance of lithium isotopes Li-6 and Li-7 in the oldest observed stars. These atoms would have been...
