Creation of coherent states in molecules by incoherent electrons

Added: 22.10.2017 11:25 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Coherent states of negative ion resonances in electron-molecule interaction are observed in experiments on e -- H2 and e -- D2 reactions. A forward-backward asymmetry is observed in the ejection of H- ions from H2 in this reaction, whereas the asymmetry in D- from D2 is weaker, but changes direction with electron energy. These results arise from attachment of a single electron to a molecule forming coherent superposition of odd and even parity states of negative ions.

#zrodlo

The first 3-D spatial visualization tool has been developed for mapping 'omics' data onto whole organs. The tool helps researchers and clinicians understand the effects of chemicals, such as microbial metabolites and medications, on a diseased organ in the context of microbes that also inhabit the region. The work could advance targeted drug delivery for cystic fibrosis and other conditions where medications are unable to penetrate.

New membrane makes separating methane and carbon dioxide more efficient

Added: 18.10.2017 15:27 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

To make natural gas and biogas suitable for use, the methane has to be separated from the carbon dioxide. This involves the use of membranes: filters that stop the methane and let the CO2 pass through. Researchers in Belgium have developed a new membrane that makes the separation process much more effective.

Customizing catalysts to boost product yields, decrease separation costs

Added: 18.10.2017 15:27 | 1 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

For some crystalline catalysts, what you see on the surface is not always what you get in the bulk. Investigators discovered that treating a complex oxide crystal with either heat or chemicals caused different atoms to segregate on the surface, i.e., surface reconstruction. Those differences created catalysts with dissimilar behaviors, which encouraged different reaction pathways and ultimately yielded distinct products.

Reducing power plants' freshwater consumption with new silica filter

Added: 18.10.2017 11:35 | 1 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Power plants draw more freshwater than any other consumer in the United States, accounting for more than 50 percent of the nation's freshwater use at about 500 billion gallons daily. To help save this water, researchers have developed a new silica filter for power plant cooling waters that decreases the amount of freshwater power plants consume by increasing the number of times cooling tower water can be reused and recycled.

A new study has discovered that ice grows differently on water-absorbent vs. water-repellent surfaces. The research suggests that applying water-repellent coatings to windshields before winter storms -- or engineering surfaces that inherently repel water -- could enable a strong breeze to handle the burden of ice removal.
