Just a few grams of the new substance are enough to tag the entire olive oil production of Italy. If counterfeiting were suspected, the particles added at the place of origin could be extracted from the oil and analysed, enabling a definitive identification of the producer. "The method is equivalent to a label that cannot be removed," says Robert Grass, lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich. The worldwide need for anti-counterfeiting labels for food...

Explaining the mysterious dynamics of glassy materials Colorful church windows, beads on a necklace and many of our favorite plastics share something in common -- they all belong to a state of matter known as glasses. School children learn the difference between liquids and gases, but centuries of scholarship have failed to produce consensus about how to categorize glass. Now, combining theory and numerical simulations, researchers have resolved an enduring question in the theory of...

Graphene-Based Spaser Could Lead To Printable Smartphones
2014-04-25 04:23:53

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new report in the journal ACS Nano, a team of Australian engineers have modelled a kind of laser called a “spaser” that would allow for the creation of smartphones so small and flexible – they could be printed on a t-shirt. Simply put, spasers are nanoscale lasers that emit a beam of light via the vibration of free electrons, as opposed to the relatively space-consuming beam of a traditional laser. While spasers,...
