New Approach in Searching and Engineering Spintronic Materials

A highly efficient spin-charge converter has been created by a group of researchers at Institute of Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) using gallium-arsenide (GaAs), a common semiconductor material. [More]
Analytik Jena’s Multi EA 5000 Features Vertical and Horizontal Modes for Precise Elemental Analysis

Analytik Jena’s Multi EA 5000 Features Vertical and Horizontal Modes for Precise Elemental Analysis

For rapid and precise determination of liquids and gases, particularly in the trace range, the use of vertical systems has become standard. With the increase in complexity and viscosity of samples, however, it is necessary to use the horizontal mode. [More]
Ultra-Short Laser Pulses Transform the Properties of Quartz Glass

Ultra-Short Laser Pulses Transform the Properties of Quartz Glass

Quartz glass, irradiated by a laser pulse, becomes a metal for a very short span of time (femtoseconds) and returns to its original state immediately afterwards. This phenomenon has now been explained by Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) scientists in partnership with Tsukuba University researchers with the help of large-scale computer simulations.
