Thanks to a loan from instrument manufacturer Anton Paar, Cornell University has a state-of-the-art rheometer that will allow those students to perform those experiments on campus. Anton Paar has provided Cornell with one of its high-end rheometers, an MCR 702 TwinDrive. The instrument will be on loan to Cornell for at least three years, said Abhishek Shetty, lead scientist in rheology at Anton Paar.

Watching Atoms Move in Hybrid Perovskite Crystals Reveals Clues to Improving Solar Cells

RENDER_10.jpg

The discovery of nanoscale changes deep inside hybrid perovskites could shed light on developing low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells. Using X-ray beams and lasers, a team of researchers led by the University of California San Diego discovered how the movement of ions in hybrid perovskites causes certain regions within the material to become better solar cells than other parts.

Stony Brook assistant professor Jason Trelewicz uses the electron microscopy and computing resources at Brookhaven Lab's Center for Functional Nanomaterials to characterize nanoscale structures in metals mixed with other elements. The goal of his research is to achieve unprecedented properties in classical materials for use in everything from aerospace and automotive components to consumer electronics and nuclear reactors.

Nano-Watch Has Steady Hands

Nanorod.png

An international team from the Universities of Vienna, Duisburg-Essen and Tel Aviv have created a nanomechanical hand to show the time of an electronic clock, by spinning a tiny cylinder using light. A silicon nanorod, less than a thousandth of a millimetre long, can be trapped in thin air using focussed laser beams, and spun to follow the ticking of a clock, losing only one-millionth of a second over four days.
