For more than 20 years, researchers have been using atomic force microscopy (AFM) to measure and characterize materials at the nanometer scale. However AFM-based measurements of chemistry and chemical properties of materials were generally not possible, until now. Researchers at the University Illinois report that they have measured the chemical properties of polymer nanostructures as small as 15 nm, using a novel technique called atomic force microscope infrared spectroscopy (AFM-IR). The...

Optical Devices Could Be Improved With New Technique

Brown University Understanding the source and orientation of light in light-emitting thin films – now possible with energy-momentum spectroscopy – could lead to better LEDs, solar cells, and other devices that use layered nanomaterials. A multi-university research team has used a new spectroscopic method to gain a key insight into how light is emitted from layered nanomaterials and other thin films. The technique, called energy-momentum spectroscopy, enables researchers...

Window Into Europa’s Ocean Opened By Astronomers

W. M. Keck Observatory With data collected from the mighty W. M. Keck Observatory, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) astronomer Mike Brown – known as the Pluto killer for discovering a Kuiper-belt object that led to the demotion of Pluto from planetary status – and Kevin Hand from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have found the strongest evidence yet that salty water from the vast liquid ocean beneath Europa´s frozen exterior actually makes its way to the...

Lake Shore´s patented CVT probe design absorbs probe arm movement caused by thermal expansion and contraction, allowing for continuous data measurement. Westerville, OH (PRWEB) February 25, 2013 Lake Shore announces today a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corporation, that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station,...

First Flexible, Flat, Transparent Image Sensor Developed
2013-02-20 16:49:11

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Imaging sensors are typically rigid and opaque, but a team of scientists from Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria has developed a new imager based on“¯a flat, flexible, transparent and potentially disposable polymer sheet. "To our knowledge, we are the first to present an image sensor that is fully transparent — no integrated microstructures, such as circuits — and is flexible and scalable at the same...

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...

Ancient Roman Cup Is Inspiration For The World's Most Sensitive Plasmon Resonance Sensor
2013-02-14 15:58:29

University of Illinois College of Engineering Utilizing optical characteristics first demonstrated by the ancient Romans, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created a novel, ultra-sensitive tool for chemical, DNA, and protein analysis. "With this device, the nanoplasmonic spectroscopy sensing, for the first time, becomes colorimetric sensing, requiring only naked eyes or ordinary visible color photography," explained Logan Liu, an assistant professor of...
