Crime-scene investigators may soon have a new tool to help them catch evildoers. Researchers have demonstrated the proof-of-principle for a new forensic technique to identify individual fibers of cloth, which often all look alike. "White cotton fibers are so common and have so few visual distinguishing features that they are largely ignored by forensic scientists at crime scenes," says Brian Strohmeier, a scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, a laboratory-instrument company based in...

Ability to probe deep below material surfaces should be boon for nanoscale devices The expression "beauty's only skin-deep" has often been applied to the chemistry of materials because so much action takes place at the surface. However, for many of the materials in today's high technologies, such as semiconductors and superconductors, once a device is fabricated it is the electronic structures below the surface, in the bulk of the material or in buried layers, that determine its...

Certain nanocrystals shown to generate more than one electron A team of Los Alamos researchers led by Victor Klimov has shown that carrier multiplication"”when a photon creates multiple electrons"”is a real phenomenon in tiny semiconductor crystals and not a false observation born of extraneous effects that mimic carrier multiplication. The research, explained in a recent issue of Accounts of Chemical Research, shows the possibility of solar cells that create more than one unit of...

By Costello, Michael T Urrego, Roberto A; Hunter, Maureen Keywords Overbased Sulfonate. Sulfurized Olefin. Molybdenum Dithiocarbamate, XPS, Four-Ball ER Surface Chemistry, Metalworking Lubricants Abstract The role of amorphous or crystalline overbased detergent and sulfur containing AW/EP additives on the surface films created in a tribometer was investigated. In the crystalline overbased sulfonate containing samples the weld point was higher than for the equivalent blend using an...


Word of the Day
barratry
  • The offense of persistently instigating lawsuits, typically groundless ones.
  • An unlawful breach of duty on the part of a ship's master or crew resulting in injury to the ship's owner.
  • Sale or purchase of positions in church or state.
This word ultimately comes from the Old French word 'barater,' to cheat.
