MIT Researchers Study Natural Materials to Develop Stronger, More Durable Concrete

MIT Researchers Study Natural Materials to Develop Stronger, More Durable Concrete

MIT scientists are exploring new ways to make stronger and more durable concrete by studying the blueprints of nature. Concrete is considered to be the world’s most commonly used man-made material. [More]
Study Corroborates Superexchange is Dominant Mechanism for Magnetic Exchange in MnO

Study Corroborates Superexchange is Dominant Mechanism for Magnetic Exchange in MnO

For the past six decades, researchers have been striving to find out how manganese oxide (MnO) attains its long-range magnetic order of alternating up and down electron spins. Currently, a group of researchers has used their newly created mathematical approach to examine the short-range magnetic interactions that they hope would drive this long-range order. [More]

Researchers Record Vaporization Process of Liquids Using SLAC’s Linac Coherent Light Source

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have for the first time developed microscopic movies depicting the vaporization of liquids by an X-ray laser, which is considered to be the brightest in the world. [More]
TESCAN VEGA SEM – Geological Workhorse at The University of Western Australia

TESCAN VEGA SEM – Geological Workhorse at The University of Western Australia

Back in 2011, The University of Western Australia purchased the first TESCAN VEGA Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), the first TESCAN installation in Australia. Since then, they have never looked back and the VEGA has become a workhorse for their geological researchers. [More]
Mapping Distribution of Molten Boron Debris Could Help Determine Re-Criticality Risk within Nuclear Reactors

Mapping Distribution of Molten Boron Debris Could Help Determine Re-Criticality Risk within Nuclear Reactors

Japanese researchers are a step closer to decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. They have been able to successfully map the distribution of boron compounds in a model control rod, which will help to determine the re-criticality risk within the reactor. [More]
