New method for analyzing crystal structure: Exotic materials called photonic crystals reveal their internal characteristics with new method
A new technique developed by MIT researchers reveals the inner details of photonic crystals, synthetic materials whose exotic optical properties are the subject of widespread research.
New technique could be used to monitor how molecular transport through neurons is modified in diseases like autism and Alzheimer’s.
New technique could test fundamental principles of quantum mechanics.
Lithium-sulfur batteries (Li-S) can hold as much as five times the energy per unit mass that lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries can. However, Li-S batteries suffer from the propensity for polysulfides to...
Inside tiny tubes, water turns solid when it should be boiling: MIT researchers discover astonishing behavior of water confined in carbon nanotubes
It's a well-known fact that water, at sea level, starts to boil at a temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit, or 100 degrees Celsius. And scientists have long observed that when water is confined in ve...
