Aperiodic Approximants for Relating Quasicrystals and Modulated Structures

Jul 15, 2024

By constructing hexagonal metallic-mean approximants of the honeycomb lattice, scientists from Tokyo Tech, Nagoya University, Toyota RIKEN, and Kindai University have linked incommensurately modulated structures and quasicrystals, two classes of aperiodic crystals. They found that a quasicrystal converges to a modulated honeycomb crystal on arranging tiles based on metallic means. This metallic-mean tiling pattern was also identified in polymer and colloidal systems in soft-matter self-assemblies, providing new insights into aperiodic crystals.

New catalysts enable greener ester synthesis

Jul 15, 2024

Chemists from Yokohama National University have successfully developed innovative catalysts containing two noble metals that demonstrate remarkable efficiency in ester-producing chemical reactions and utilize oxygen as the sole oxidant, making the process much more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Atomic force microscopy in 3D

Making Waves: Generation of Intense Terahertz Waves with a Magnetic Material

Jun 28, 2024

Terahertz waves are being intensely studied by researchers around the world seeking to understand the "terahertz gap". Terahertz waves have a specific frequency that put them somewhere between microwaves and infrared light. This range is referred to as a "gap" because much remains unknown about these waves. In fact, it was only relatively recently that researchers were able to develop the technology to generate them. Researchers at Tohoku University have brought us closer to understanding these waves and filling in this gap of knowledge.

Enabling tomorrow’s batteries through comprehensive materials analysis

During this webinar, hosted by the Volta Foundation, we explored the benefits of applying comprehensive and correlated battery materials analysis techniques. Find out how electron microscopy-based analysis in combination with confocal Raman microscopy/spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) deliver holistic solutions for R&D and manufacturing.
