Latest Valence electron Stories
Researchers observe the motion of an atom's valence or outermost electrons in real-time by investigating the ejection of an electron from an atom by an intense laser pulse.
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
A team of Virginia Commonwealth University scientists has discovered a â€˜magnetic superatomâ€™ â€“ a stable cluster of atoms that can mimic different elements of the periodic table â€“ that one day may be used to create molecular electronic devices for the next generation.
