A new METTLER TOLEDO on-demand webinar explores recent research that could revolutionize pharmaceutical production. In it, in situ Process Analytical Technology (PAT) supported the development of a continuous plug flow crystallization platform that was able to meet production scale capacities in a lab setting while tightly controlling product attributes including particle size and shape distribution as well as yield and purity. (PRWEB) April 14, 2014 METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a...

An international team of scientists has reported the first experimental observation of the quantum critical point (QCP) in the extensively studied “unconventional superconductor” TiSe2, finding that it does not reside as predicted within the superconducting dome of the phase diagram, but rather at a full GPa higher in pressure. The surprising result, reported in Nature Physics, suggests that the emergence of superconductivity in TiSe2 isn’t associated with the melting of a charge...

Sunshine Clotheslines across the country are put to use as spring weather replaces the deep cold experienced by much of the U.S. this winter, but many people save money and resources by using their Sunshine Clotheslines year round. Here’s how you can too. Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) April 08, 2014 As we enter the month of April, warmer spring weather is replacing the bitter cold of the Polar Vortex and Sunshine Clothesline owners are putting their outdoor clothes driers to back to use. For...

Researchers present the new form of matter at the 58th Biophysical Society Meeting in San Francisco Plop living, swimming bacteria into a novel water-based, nontoxic liquid crystal and a new physics takes over. The dynamic interaction of the bacteria with the liquid crystal creates a novel form of soft matter: living liquid crystal. The new type of active material, which holds promise for improving the early detection of diseases, was developed by a research collaboration based at...

Scientists from Paris, Newcastle and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin have been able to switch on and off robust ferromagnetism close to room temperature by using low electric fields. Their results are inspiring for future applications in low-power spintronics, for instance in fast, efficient and nonvolatile data storage technologies. The sample consisted of a ferroelectric BaTiO3 substrate covered with a thin film of magnetic FeRh.  Experiments at BESSY II combined with other measurement methods...

[ Watch the Video: What Do LCD TVs And Candles Have In Common? ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Paraffin wax and an LCD television have a lot more in common than you might think, according to a new study published in The Journal of Chemical Physics. Researchers at the Physics and Material Science Research Unit of the University of Luxembourg made the connection between paraffin wax and liquid crystal while studying the crystallization process of wax on a...

New Evidence Suggests Universal Collapse May Soon Be Upon Us
2013-12-12 15:09:39

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Physicists are now saying the universe may be closer to collapsing than previously believed. Scientists have long predicted the universe could one day collapse, compressing everything contained within, much like a building that can’t contain its own weight. Sooner or later, scientists believe the universe will cause every little particle in it to become extremely heavy, causing all material to squeeze into a small, super-hot and...

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For several decades now the leading model for the origin and evolution of the known Universe is a concept known as the Big Bang. Nearly 15 billion years ago, quantum fluctuations of the infinite vacuum of space-time caused the emergence of a rapidly expanding Universe, ultimately filled with matter and radiation. But what initially caused the fluctuation? According to quantum mechanics, it is a natural result of the...
