Latest Intermolecular forces Stories
Current methods for detecting life in a foreign environment rely on chemistry, but what if the life forms we’re looking for – like those that might be on other planets – don’t conform to our current notions of biological chemistry?
Van der Waals forces act like a sort of quantum glue on all types of matter. Using a new measuring technique, scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich experimentally determined for the first time all of the key details of how strongly the single molecules bind to a surface.
Park’s new Analytical Services includes a wide range of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) imaging and data interpretation features that allows for nanometer scale resolution imaging of surface topography
MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- An Australian startup is using a patented nanotechnology to create 'hydrophobic' chef jackets and aprons.
Melbourne based company Threadsmiths has solved the age old problem of stained white T-Shirts by synthesizing a fully hydrophobic T-Shirt. Melbourne, Victoria
The uncanny ability of geckos to adhere to nearly any surface and even walk on ceilings is the result of a biological mechanism in their toes that the lizards can instantly turn on or off, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the Journal of Applied Physics.
In the Namib Desert of Africa, the fog-filled morning wind carries the drinking water for a beetle called the Stenocara.
The molecular scale behavior of water at a solid/liquid interface holds fundamental significance in a diverse set of technical and scientific contexts, ranging from the efficiency of oil mining to the activity of biological molecules.
NANOSENSORS publishes an English and a Chinese screencast on its new uniqprobes for atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning probe microscopy (SPM), which explains the advantages of the main
Park Systems, a leading manufacturer of atomic force microscopy (AFM) products, proudly introduces its next generation NX-PTR, a fully automated system for hard disk drive slider manufacturing.
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...
