Tomorrow’s Materials And Photonic Devices Produced By Using Möbius Strip To Tie Liquid Crystal In Knots
2013-08-20 11:10:08

University of Warwick University of Warwick scientists have shown how to tie knots in liquid crystals using a miniature Möbius strip made from silica particles. By tying substances like this in knots, the researchers hope to understand how their intricate configurations and unique properties can be harnessed in the next generation of advanced materials and photonic devices. Liquid crystal is an essential material in modern life – the flat panel displays on our computers, TVs and...

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne A colloid is a substance spread out evenly inside another substance. Everyday examples include milk, styrofoam, hair sprays, paints, shaving foam, gels and even dust, mud and fog. One of the most interesting properties of colloids is their ability to self-assemble — to aggregate spontaneously into well-defined structures, driven by nothing but local interactions between the colloid's particles. Self-assembly has been...

Missing Link Between Mechanical And Structural Properties Of Glass Established By Researchers
2013-04-10 12:47:08

Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron The craft of glassmaking extends way back in time. It was over five-thousand years ago when mankind learned how to make glass. Even prior to this discovery, humans had been using naturally occurring glass for tool making. Despite this long and rich history and widespread use of glass, surprisingly little is known about the interplay between the mechanical properties of glasses and their inner structures. For the first time, researchers from Amsterdam...

Starch-based intravenous (IV) fluids used by the NHS to treat seriously ill patients are causing unnecessary deaths, according to a new Cochrane systematic review by researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Based on data from 25 randomized control trials, the researchers concluded that starch-based colloid fluids, used to stabilize patients with low blood pressure, are not only more expensive than saline-based crystalloid fluids, but may also be causing around...
