Surprising Control Over Photoelectrons From A Topological Insulator
2013-03-13 15:22:44

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Berkeley Lab scientists discover how a photon beam can flip the spin polarization of electrons emitted from an exciting new material Plain-looking but inherently strange crystalline materials called 3D topological insulators (TIs) are all the rage in materials science. Even at room temperature, a single chunk of TI is a good insulator in the bulk, yet behaves like a metal on its surface. Researchers find TIs exciting partly because the electrons...

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...


Word of the Day
endocarp
  • The hard inner (usually woody) layer of the pericarp of some fruits (as peaches or plums or cherries or olives) that contains the seed.
This word comes from the Greek 'endon,' in, within, plus the Greek 'kardia,' heart.
