In recent months, work from the XPS Facility has contributed to publications on attaching antifreeze proteins to nanoparticles to modulate the formation and growth of ice at sub-zero temperatures, including an article in the Pioneering Inverstigators issue of Polymer Science.
A methodology is developed for chemically modifying DNA nanoflowers so as to increase stability and introduce magnetic properties.
Astronomers have discovered the first direct evidence for white dwarf stars solidifying into giant balls of crystallized elements, a process that was first predicted 50 years ago.
Solar spicules are jets of cold dense material emerging through the Sun's lower atmosphere, the chromosphere. This work demonstrated these can be formed from MHD waves.
Observation of ballistic 1D holes with strong g‑factor anisotropy in epitaxial Germanium marks an important step toward the realization of novel devices for applications in quantum spintronics.
Until now, electron diffraction has not determined atomic positions in a crystal to the same accuracy (10^-13 m) as X-rays. We describe a new method which does this and more.
