The gods of small things

Heterometallic copper-aluminum super atom discovered

27-Sep-2018

On the outside, the cluster made of 55 copper and aluminum atoms looks like a crystal, but chemically it has the properties of an atom. The heterometallic superatom which chemists of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have created provides the prerequisites for developing new, more ...

Watching two-dimensional materials grow

30-Aug-2018

Atomically thin crystals will play an ever greater role in future – but how can their crystallisation process be controlled? A new method is now opening up new possibilities. They are among the thinnest structures on earth: “two dimensional materials” are crystals which consist of only one or a ...

Organic Crystals Twist, Bend, and Heal

Soft crystal gives a multifunctional, all-in-one material

19-Jun-2018

Crystals are brittle and inelastic? A novel class of smart, bendable crystalline organic materials has challenged this view. Now, scientists have engineered a molecular soft cocrystalline structure that bends and twists reversibly and without disintegration when stimulated by high temperature, ...

Chaos that will keep you warm: Researchers improve heat insulation using deliberate chaos

04-Apr-2018

Powder is extremely well-suited for thermal insulation when there is a jumble of different sized nanoparticles in it. This was discovered by a research group at the University of Bayreuth led by Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch. The scientists were able to determine how the thermal conductivity of powder ...

Strange things happen when a crystal gets split in two

05-Feb-2018

When a crystal is broken along certain directions the atoms reorganize in amazing ways. Researchers in Vienna have watched this happen, and have learned to control it. The remarkable strength of ionic crystals is easily explained at the atomic scale: Positively and negatively charged atoms sit ...

Study pinpoints role of proteins that produce pearls

26-Sep-2017

Pearls are among nature's most beautiful creations, and have been treasured for countless centuries. Beneath one's iridescent surface lies a tough and resilient structure made of intricately arranged tiles of calcium carbonate organized by a crew of proteins that guide its formation and ...

You won't find ice cubes like this in your freezer

How to make 'squarest' ice crystals ever

11-Jul-2017

An international team of scientists has set a new record for creating ice crystals that have a near-perfect cubic arrangement of water molecules--a form of ice that may exist in the coldest high-altitude clouds but is extremely hard to make on Earth. The ability to make and study cubic ice in the ...

Creating crystals from gold

Crystals of an antibody peptide complex related to AIDS research

08-Mar-2017

Scientists from Imperial College London have revealed how materials such as gold can help create protein crystals. The team, from the Department of Surgery and Cancer , hope their findings could aid the discovery of new medicines and treatments. Proteins are crucial to numerous functions in the ...

New form of matter unveiled: Time crystals

30-Jan-2017

To most people, crystals mean diamond bling, semiprecious gems or perhaps the jagged amethyst or quartz crystals beloved by collectors. To Norman Yao, these inert crystals are the tip of the iceberg. If crystals have an atomic structure that repeats in space, like the carbon lattice of a diamond, ...
