Characterization news

Scientists have uncovered evidence that a state of matter known as a pair density wave coexists with superconductivity in a cuprate superconductor.

A new study shows that samarium sulfide expands at low temperatures due to electrons moving into the outermost shell of the samarium atoms.

Researchers have shown how different temperatures can be used to create different products from biohydrogels depending on their intended application.

Composite metal foams have passed so-called ‘simulated pool fire testing’, which indicates they could be used for transporting hazardous materials.

Utilizing 'hybrid data', a new analytical technique can improve the estimation of mechanical properties of metallic materials from indention tests.

Using an electrochemical cell inside a transmission electron microscope, scientists have captured in real time how lithium ions move in lithium titanate.

Researchers have shown that modifying any surface with millimeter tall peaks and valleys can reduce frost formation on that surface by 60%.

Researchers have found that small grooves in filter paper can cause single-walled carbon nanotubes to line up side-by-side in 2D films.

Ni-rich cathodes used in EV Li-ion batteries show improved performance stability when doped with boron

flakes of material decorated with tiny particles could prove useful for catalyzing hydrogen generation reactions

easy way to make large, freestanding, thin sheets of metallic materials could open up novel applications in catalysis, flexible electronics, soft robotics

For the first time, physicists have found found evidence for entanglement between the electrons in a ferromagnet.

Using an X-ray free-electron laser, scientists have shown that melting of a gold film starts at grain boundaries and then moves inside the grain.

Prof. Barbara Rothen-Rutishauser is using an Agents of Change grant to empower women in academia

Researchers used surface spectroscopy methods to track polymer self-assembly at the oil-water interface in real time.

Researchers have developed a novel electron microscopy method for testing microscopic aeronautical materials at ultra-high temperatures.

Scientists have developed a 3D imaging technique for observing complex behaviours in magnets, including fast-moving waves and 'tornadoes'.

Researchers have used small molecules that fluoresce after the impact of mechanical force to detect damage in fiber-reinforced polymers.
