Researchers find new clues for high-temp superconductivity

By / August 28, 2009

For a while now, some scientists have thought that conditions necessary for superconductivity at higher temperatures exist. Now, a paper published in Science adds some fuel to their argument. It concerns the work of a group of U.S. and Japanese researchers – sponsored by a set of U.S. and Japanese government agencies – doing observations…

NIST develops low-cost, ultra-sensitive infrared spectrometer

By / August 27, 2009

The good folks at the National Institute of Standards and Technology say they have a new method for measuring light in the near-infrared range that is highly sensitive (in the single photon range) and relatively inexpensive. NIST researchers Lijun Ma, Oliver Slattery and Xiao Tang figured out a way to “up convert” photons at one…

New MACS fills appetite for fast, accurate spectroscopy

By / March 19, 2009

NIST and Johns Hopkins University researchers have unveiled a new speedy and sensitive probe that may prove to be a godsend for nano scientists and related businesses. The NIST-JHU team calls the equipment a Multi-Axis Crystal Spectrometer. It is built on the technology developed in prior spectrometers at NIST’s Center for Neutron Research, where MACS…
