Scientists Create New Hydrogen Mixture that Exhibits Different Molecular Interactions

Scientists Create New Hydrogen Mixture that Exhibits Different Molecular Interactions

Scientists have combined hydrogen (H2) and deuterium (D2) to produce a new “Phase IV” material in which molecular interaction was found to be different than previously observed. This is the first time Anderson localization from vibrational energy has been noticed during interaction with different masses in a material. [More]
