Large scale molecular dynamics simulations unravel the coupled processes at work during fracturing and flow of carbon dioxide and water in quartz grains at the nanoscale.
A new method, nano-FTIR, is used to examine microstructures and processes on grains, displaying its benefit for examining asteroid returned samples through a meteorite.
A new study finds the lofted pollutants came from major European cities, but further study is required to fully understand the plastics’ transport and deposition processes.
New research in the field of neuromorphic computing uses tiny magnets and their magnetic fields to optimize computing algorithms.
Samples of the Moon’s surface brought back by Apollo astronauts ushered in a new era of planetary science. Scientists today continue the legacy.
Nanosized chambers capture bits of light for infinite amounts of time.
Formation of nanometer-scale quartz beads could promote linear “slickenline” patterns and facilitate fault movement.
A study of nanoscale, iron- and sulfur-rich impurities in diamonds provides new clues to the chemical processes that produce the superhard crystals and at what depths they occur.
Scientists observe the step-by-step process by which a fungus attacks a mineral to extract vital nutrients.
