Latest Superatom Stories
An international team of researchers has discovered a new class of magnetic superhalogens â€“ a class of atomic clusters able to exhibit unusual stability at a specific size and composition, which may be used to advance materials science by allowing scientists to create a new class of salts with magnetic and super-oxidizing properties not previously found.
Transforming lead into gold is an impossible feat, but a similar type of "alchemy" is not only possible, but cost-effective too.
U.S. scientists have discovered a magnetic superatom that might one day be used to create molecular electronic devices for future computers. Virginia Commonwealth University researchers said the superatom consists of a stable cluster of atoms that can mimic different elements of the periodic table.
