With each passing day, the dark side of our addiction to fossil fuels becomes more apparent.
Impurities in the plasmas in fusion tokamaks can reduce performance. These impurities are created by interactions between the hot plasma and the metal tokamak walls.
A collaboration including researchers from Oregon State University (OSU) reports that sunscreen containing zinc oxide, a common ingredient, tends to lose much of its effectiveness and turns toxic after being exposed to ultraviolet radiation for 2 hours.
Researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington (UT Arlington) are working on a way to fully understand artificial ferroelectric materials that may be engineered to exhibit ‘smart’ mechanical behaviors.
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research is pleased to announce a redesigned eStore for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probes.
Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have developed a comprehensive framework for analyzing the evaporation behavior of liquid marbles. The new framework helps gain better insights into these tiny biological structures.
Scientists have synthesized tetrafluoride powders of four radioactive elements-;thorium, uranium, neptunium, and plutonium. These four elements are actinides, a series of heavy and radioactive elements.
Owing to polymer science, ubiquitous requirements of everyday life like rubber tires, plastic water bottles, Kevlar and Teflon, nylon jackets among many others have been possible.
Powder processing lies at the heart of pharmaceutical manufacture. It is therefore necessary that efforts to improve efficiency and preserve quality must focus on understanding and controlling powder behaviour.
In polymetallic complexes, two or more metal atoms combine with organic molecules into larger, complicated molecular structures.
