Precision control of superconductivity in atomic layers using magnetic molecules

A research team has succeeded in precisely controlling the transition temperature of atomic-scale-thick superconductors using magnetic organic molecules. The team also identified the control mechanism.

X-rays from copper source set new gold standard for measuring industrial materials

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have produced and precisely measured a spectrum of X-rays using a new, state-of-the-art machine. The instrument they used to measure the X-rays took 20 years to develop, and will help scientists working at the agency make some of the world's most accurate measurements of materials for use in everything from bridges to pharmaceuticals. It will also ensure that the measurements of materials from other labs around the world are as reliable as possible.

NASA Holds Media Teleconference Today on Exploration Mission-1 Status

NASA will provide an update on the status of Exploration Mission-1, the first integrated flight of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, during a media teleconference at 3 p.m. EDT today, May 12.

Electrostatic design of materials: A fundamentally new approach

Researchers have mapped out a radically new approach for designing optical and electronic properties of materials.

X-rays from copper source set new gold standard for measuring industrial materials

With this new, unique X-ray machine, NIST can make some of the world's most accurate measurements, and calibrate everyone else's X-rays, too.

SHINE software shows data using virtual reality

A new piece of free, online software, called SHINE3D, has been developed by researchers at CERN's NA61/SHINE experiment to show the physics data they're creating in 3-D.

'Fire-streaks' are created in collisions of atomic nuclei

At very high energies, the collision of massive atomic nuclei in an accelerator generates hundreds or even thousands of particles that undergo numerous interactions. Physicists at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow, Poland, have shown that the course of this complex process can be represented by a surprisingly simple model: Extremely hot matter moves away from the impact point, stretching along the original flight path in streaks, and the further the streak is from the plane of the collision, the greater its velocity.

Liquid-crystal and bacterial living materials self-organize and move in their own way

Smart glass, transitional lenses and mood rings are not the only things made of liquid crystals; mucus, slug slime and cell membranes also contain them. Now, a team of researchers is trying to better understand how liquid crystals, combined with bacteria, form living materials and how the two interact to organize and move.

New understanding of superconductor's 'normal' state may help solve longstanding puzzle

Recent experiments have shed new light on the electronic properties of an unconventional topological superconductor material at temperatures 4°K above Tc.

World-first Proton CT images create a new vision for cancer treatment

An international team of scientists has produced the world's first computerised tomography (CT) images of biological tissue using protons – a momentous step towards improving the quality and feasibility of Proton Therapy for cancer sufferers around the world.
