People might visualize crystals as perfect structures, but they are usually plagued with “defects.” The interesting fact about these defects is that they often appear as a result of atoms experiencing reorganization to reduce the system’s energy and achieve stability.
A newly developed multi-frequency method results in a brief measurement time of just a few seconds rather than the traditional 10 minutes.
Two-dimensional “nanosheets” made of bonds between metal atoms and organic molecules are attractive candidates for photoelectric conversion, but get corroded easily.
A team of scientists led by the Department of Applied Physics at Osaka University, the Department of Physics and Electronics at Osaka Prefecture University, and the Department of Materials Chemistry at Nagoya University used photoinduced force microscopy to map out the forces acting on quantum dots in three dimensions.
In the journal Nature Communications, an interdisciplinary team from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces presents for the first time a laser-driven technology that enables them to create nanoparticles such as copper, cobalt and nickel oxides.
Researchers have developed new types of materials that combines two or three types of nanoparticles into structures that display fundamental new properties such as superfluorescence.
Transient grating spectroscopy is an elegant method that uses two laser pulses to activate a medium by creating an interference pattern made of parallel stripes of excitations that can be thermal, electronic, magnetic or even structural.
Scientists have developed a method to use lasers to control the movement of nanodiamonds with fluorescent centers.
JEOL Ltd. (President & COO Izumi Oi) announces the release of Electron Beam Metal AM Machine JAM-5200EBM from March 26, 2021. Using technology of the world's highest level performance electron microscope and electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing, JEOL has developed an "Electron Beam Metal AM Machine" with higher power, higher density and higher speed.
Researchers at the University of Ottawa have debunked the decade-old myth of metals being useless in photonics - the science and technology of light - with their findings, recently published in Nature Communications, expected to lead to many applications in the field of nanophotonics.
