Technische Universitaet Muenchen Neutron scattering experiment resolves a contentious superconducting issue Below a specific transition temperature superconductors transmit electrical current nearly loss-free. For the best of the so-called high-temperature superconductors, this temperature lies around -180 °C – a temperature that can be achieved by cooling with liquid nitrogen. The location of atomic nuclei and binding electrons in a material is determined by its crystal...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Despite the fact that it covers more than two-thirds of the planet’s surface, and that US households can use as much as 100 gallons of it per day, there are still mysteries to be uncovered about water – as evidenced by a pair of studies published in the June 18 edition of the journal Nature. In the first paper, researchers from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory completed the first-ever...

"What a curious feeling," says Alice in Lewis Carroll's tale, as she shrinks to a fraction of her size, and everything around her suddenly looks totally unfamiliar. Scientists too have to get used to these curious feelings when they examine matter on tiny scales and at low temperatures: all the behavior we are used to seeing around us is turned on its head. In research published today in the journal Nature Communications, UCL scientists have made a startling discovery about a familiar...

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...
