National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) By combining advanced mathematics with high-performance computing, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Indiana University (IU) have developed a tool that allowed them to calculate a fundamental property of most atoms on the periodic table to historic accuracy—reducing error by a factor of a thousand in many cases. The technique also could be used to determine a host of other atomic properties...

Chemiscope To Help Chemistry In Action
2014-03-18 05:09:00

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at the University of California, Irvine’s Center for Chemistry at the Space-Time Limit (CaSTL) have reportedly developed a new tool that could make it possible to observe the making and breaking of chemical bonds and how molecules behave during a chemical reaction. The device is known as the “chemiscope,” and according to CaSTL officials it could revolutionize chemistry in much the same way that the microscope...

The broadening of quantum chemistry known as hadronic chemistry, and its applications to new clean burning fuels, such as Santilli MagneHydrogen and Hy-Fuels, will be studied at the international workshop organized by the Department of Chemistry of R. T. M. Nagpur University in India under partial support by The R. M. Santilli Foundation (http://www.santilli-foundation.org/India-Conf-2013.php). Palm Harbor, FL (PRWEB) October 17, 2013 The broadening of quantum chemistry known as hadronic...

Promising candidate for information processing with magnetic molecules Magnetic molecules are regarded as promising functional units for the future of information processing. An interdisciplinary team of researchers from Jülich and Aachen were the first to produce particularly robust magnetic molecules that enable a direct electrical readout of magnetic information. This was made possible by selecting the rare earth metal neodymium as the central building block of the molecule. The team's...

One-of-a-kind spectrometer reads vibrations between atoms to find structures of molecules A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards. By measuring the vibrations between atoms using femtosecond-long laser pulses, the Rice lab of chemist Junrong Zheng is able to discern the positions of atoms within molecules without the restrictions imposed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and...

Quantum Tunneling Is The Secret To Alcohol Reactions In Space
2013-06-30 12:56:40

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Understanding chemical reactions in space is incredibly difficult. First of all, the extremely cold temperatures would all but preclude most chemicals mixing, as there is simply insufficient energy to ignite the reactions. Yet, observational data suggests that complex compounds are being created in this inhospitable environment. Now, however, a new study reveals that a quantum effect known to be the key in stellar physics may...

Berkeley Lab research at AAAS Meeting In the blink of an eye, more attoseconds have expired than the age of Earth measured in — minutes. A lot more. To be precise, an attosecond is one billionth of a billionth of a second. The attosecond timescale is where you must go to study the electron action that is the starting point of all of chemistry. Not surprisingly, chemists are most eager to explore it with X-rays, the region of the electromagnetic spectrum that can probe the core...

Chemical Processes Controlled With Ultra-short Laser Pulses
2012-12-12 16:29:32

Technische Universität Wien How can molecules be split in a controlled manner? A new experiment at the TU Vienna shows how research into ultra-short laser pulses can be combined with chemistry. Chemical reactions occur so quickly that it is completely impossible to observe their progress or to control them using conventional methods. However, new developments in electrical engineering and quantum technology enable us to achieve a more exact understanding and improved...

A new study of the sense of smell lends support to a controversial theory of olfaction: Our noses can distinguish both the shape and the vibrational characteristics of odorant molecules. The study, in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, demonstrates the feasibility of the theory — first proposed decades ago — that the vibration of an odorant molecule´s chemical bonds — the wagging, stretching and rocking of the links between atoms — contributes to...

The International Journal of Quantum Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1967 by Per-Olov Lowdin. The journal moved to an in-house editorial office model in 2011, enlisting a permanent team of professional editors. It publishes original, primary research and review articles on all aspects of quantum chemistry, including an expanded scope focusing on aspects of materials science, biochemistry, biophysics, quantum physics, and quantum information theory.

callithump
  • A somewhat riotous parade, accompanied with the blowing of tin horns, and other discordant noises; also, a burlesque serenade; a charivari.
'Callithump' is a back-formation of 'callithumpian,' a 'fanciful formation' according to the Oxford English Dictionary. However, the English Dialect Dictionary, says 'Gallithumpians' is a Dorset and Devon word from the 1790s that refers to 'a society of radical social reformers' or 'noisy disturbers of elections and meetings.'
