Chiral Magnetic Materials Help Increase Data Storage Capacity

Chiral Magnetic Materials Help Increase Data Storage Capacity

Members from a research collaboration called “A Consortium to Exploit Spin Chirality in Advanced Materials” has succeeded in experimentally establishing the properties of crystals of chiral magnetic materials. This could lead to the development of new varieties of magnetic memories with remarkable storage capacities. In 2015, the collaboration was established by scientists from a number of countries, including the UK, Russia, and Japan. [More]
Novel X-ray Method Provides Better Images of Imperfect Crystals of Biomolecules

Novel X-ray Method Provides Better Images of Imperfect Crystals of Biomolecules

Forming the high-quality crystals required for X-ray analysis of the structure of biological molecules is often the most difficult part of taking atomic-resolution images. Using the world's brightest X-ray source, at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, researchers have demonstrated that sharp images are obtainable, even with imperfect crystals.

Twisted X-rays Help Explore Biological and Nanoscale Structures

Twisted X-rays Help Explore Biological and Nanoscale Structures

The phenomenon of X-ray diffraction by crystals was discovered more than a century ago, and since then it has been a preferred technique for structure determination. It has established its presence in structural research in the fields of biology, and material science. However, many materials whose structures are unknown, do not easily crystallize as three-dimensional structures. [More]
Researchers Explain the Formation of Metallic Glasses

Researchers Explain the Formation of Metallic Glasses

Rapid freezing of any liquid or even liquid metal leads to the formation of glass. Materials science research is currently focusing on metallic glasses or vitrified metals that have been formed by swiftly cooling alloys of a wide range of metals such as magnesium, copper, titanium, palladium, zirconium, and iron.
