Laser-Induced Micro-Explosions Create New, Exotic Materials

Laser-Induced Micro-Explosions Create New, Exotic Materials

A team of researchers has developed a novel technique to make new, exotic materials using ultra-short laser-induced micro-explosions in silicon. Silicon is a material that is generally used in computer chips. The research team successfully focused lasers onto silicon which was embedded deep inside a clear silicon dioxide layer and blasted small cavities in the solid silicon reliably. The study has been published in Nature Communications. [More]

Macromolecules Self-Assemble from Metastable, Supersaturated Solution into Crystals

Macromolecules Self-Assemble from Metastable, Supersaturated Solution into Crystals

The mother liquor from which a biomolecular crystal is grown will contain water, buffer molecules, native ligands and cofactors, crystallization precipitants and additives, various metal ions, and often small-molecule ligands or inhibitors. On average, about half the volume of a biomolecular crystal consists of this mother liquor, whose components form the disordered bulk solvent. [More]
