World's Finest Gold Specimen Probed With Los Alamos Neutrons

Los Alamos National Laboratory

Using neutron characterization techniques a team of scientists have peered inside one of the most unique examples of wire gold, understanding for the first time the specimen's structure and possible formation process. The 263 gram, 12 centimeter tall specimen, known as the Ram's Horn, belongs to the collection of the Mineralogical and Geological Museum Harvard University (MGMH).

Hyperbolic Metamaterials Enable Nanoscale ‘Fingerprinting’

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Hyperbolic metamaterials are artificially made structures that can be formed by depositing alternating thin layers of a conductor such as silver or graphene onto a substrate. One of their special abilities is supporting the propagation of a very narrow light beam. This narrow beam can then be used to “fingerprint” and obtain spatial and material information about nanometer-scale objects -- allowing identification without complete images. Researchers report their work in APL Photonics.
