New Technique Allows Closer Look At How Radiation Damages Materials
2013-08-06 12:41:39

North Carolina State University A team of researchers led by North Carolina State University has developed a technique that provides real-time images of how magnesium changes at the atomic scale when exposed to radiation. The technique may give researchers new insights into how radiation weakens the integrity of radiation-tolerant materials, such as those used in space exploration and in nuclear energy technologies. "We used high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) to...

Virginia Tech In situ molecular microscopy provides a gateway to imaging dynamic systems in structural biology If the key to winning battles is knowing both your enemy and yourself, then scientists are now well on their way toward becoming the Sun Tzus of medicine by taking a giant step toward a priceless advantage — the ability to see the soldiers in action on the battlefield. Investigators at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute have invented a way to directly image...

Electron Beams That Possess An Inner Rotation Created
2012-11-05 13:28:11

Vienna University of Technology Vortex beams, rotating like a tornado, offer completely new possibilities for electron microscopy. A method of producing extremely intense vortex beams has been discovered at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna). Nowadays, electron microscopes are an essential tool, especially in the field of materials science. At TU Vienna, electron beams are being created that possess an inner rotation, similarly to a tornado. These "vortex beams" cannot only...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers are one step closer to solving the mysteries of graphene, the carbon allotrope that could be the basis for the next generation of sensors, transistors, processors and more - if scientists can find a way to produce it in large quantities and mold it into the shape necessary to power future devices. One of the major problems with the material is that it is difficult to grow it into a layer that is only a single atom...

Pitt nanoscientists suggest the use of vacuums to overcome the limits of conventional silicon-based semiconductor electronics With the advent of semiconductor transistors–invented in 1947 as a replacement for bulky and inefficient vacuum tubes–has come the consistent demand for faster, more energy-efficient technologies. To fill this need, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh are proposing a new spin on an old method: a switch from the use of silicon electronics back to...

Electron microscopy, conducted as part of the Shared Research Equipment (ShaRE) User Program at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has led to a new theory to explain intriguing properties in a material with potential applications in capacitors and actuators. A research team led by ORNL's Albina Borisevich examined thin films of bismuth samarium ferrite, known as BSFO, which exhibits unusual physical properties near its transition from one phase to another. BSFO holds...

Looking into specimens on an atomic level in liquids, and understanding atomic processes so far regarded impossible The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced that a research team from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has developed a technology that enables scientists and engineers to observe processes occurring in liquid media on the smallest possible scale which is less than a nanometer. Professor Jeong Yong Lee and Researcher Jong Min...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
