NEI Corporation announced today that it has introduced NANOMYTE® SuperCN Plus - a functionally graded coating that imparts superhydrophobic properties to the underlying substrate while providing greater abrasion resistance compared to existing superhydrophobic coatings. Surfaces treated with SuperCN Plus force liquids to bead up and roll off, shedding water instantly and leaving the surface completely dry. Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) March 26, 2014 NEI Corporation announced today that it...

Modeling structures that trap air under water and could one day lead to more energy-efficient ships described in the journal 'Physics of Fluids' From the sleek hulls of racing yachts to Michael Phelps' shaved legs, most objects that move through the water quickly are also smooth. But researchers from UCLA have found that bumpiness can sometimes be better. "A properly designed rough surface, contrary to our intuition, can reduce skin-friction drag," said John Kim, a professor in the...

Researchers Develop 'Spinning Trap' To Measure Electron Roundness
2013-12-05 19:47:47

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) JILA researchers have developed a method of spinning electric and magnetic fields around trapped molecular ions to measure whether the ions' tiny electrons are truly round—research with major implications for future scientific understanding of the universe. As described in the Dec. 6, 2013, issue of Science, the JILA team used their new spinning method to make their first measurement of the electron's roundness—technically, the...

Nano-Cone Textures Produce Extremely Robust Water-Repellent Surfaces
2013-10-22 10:29:01

Brookhaven National Laboratory Surfaces with differently shaped nanoscale textures may yield improved materials for applications in transportation, energy, and diagnostics When it comes to designing extremely water-repellent surfaces, shape and size matter. That's the finding of a group of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, who investigated the effects of differently shaped, nanoscale textures on a material's ability to force water droplets to...

Convenient Tool Is Ideal For Removing Wallpaper As Well As Cleaning Small Cracks And Crevices Vernon Hills, Illinois (PRWEB) October 21, 2013 LadybugSteamCleaners.com, an authorized dealer that sells Ladybug vapor steam cleaners online and to walk-in customers who visit their Chicago-area showroom, announced today that it has stocked a wallpaper scraper for use with certain Ladybug vapor steam cleaners. “Our wallpaper scraper is designed for us with the affordable Ladybug 2150 vapor...

Material Properties Of Containers Affect The Viscosity Of Water At The Nanoscale
2013-09-19 14:25:06

Georgia Institute of Technology Water pours into a cup at about the same rate regardless of whether the water bottle is made of glass or plastic. But at nanometer-size scales for water and potentially other fluids, whether the container is made of glass or plastic does make a significant difference. A new study shows that in nanoscopic channels, the effective viscosity of water in channels made of glass can be twice as high as water in plastic channels. Nanoscopic glass channels can...

Making Water Droplets Dance

[ Watch the Video: Magnetic Droplets on a Superhydrophobic Surface ] Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are experimenting with non-dissapative droplet patterns to study reversible switching between static and dynamic self-assembly. Researchers from Aalto University and Paris Tech studied water droplets containing nanoparticles on a strong water repellent surface to observe the self-assembly process. A video demonstrating the mesmerizing phenomena was posted...

Why Do Some Surfaces Repel Water, While Others Attract It?
2013-07-17 05:17:38

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at MIT are working on better understanding how surfaces attract or repel water. When water strikes a surface, sometimes it spreads evenly while other times it beads into tiny droplets. Studying this behavior can lead to improvements in many applications. If water strikes a material and maximizes its contact with it, then it is known as hydrophilic, but when water is naturally repelled on a material, it is called...

Water vapor (aqueous vapor) is the gaseous phase of water. It is one stage of the water cycle of our planet. Water vapor is formed from either evaporation or heating of liquid water, or from the sublimation of ice. In nature, water vapor is continuously produced by evaporation and removed by condensation. Along with carbon dioxide and methane gas, water vapor is one of the greenhouse gases. The release of water molecules from liquid water is considered evaporation. The transition of these...

The Water strider, (also known as: Skater, Pond Skater, Jesus Bug, Water Skeeter, water scooter, water skater, and Skimmer) is any of a number of predatory insects in the family Gerridae that rely on the surface tension of water to walk on top of it. They live on the surface of ponds, slow streams, marshes, and other quiet waters and can move very quickly (up to 1 m/s) over the surface of water. Aquarius remigis (formerly known as Gerris remigis) is one of the species in Gerridae known as...

A rare earth is an oxide of a rare earth element. Often rare earth elements themselves are loosely called "rare earths". As to exactly what is a "rare earth" element is a matter of some ambiguity. The narrowest definition restricts it to the lanthanides, which are lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium. Sometimes the radioactive actinides are included, so that all elements...
