Nanoparticle supersoap creates 'bijel' with potential as sculptable fluid



Berkeley CA (SPX) Oct 03, 2017
A new two-dimensional film, made of polymers and nanoparticles and developed by researchers at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), can direct two different non-mixing liquids into a variety of exotic architectures. This finding could lead to soft robotics, liquid circuitry, shape-shifting fluids, and a host of new materials that use soft, rather than solid, substances. The study, reported in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, presents the newest entry i ... read more

The material that obscures supermassive black holes
Canary Islands, Spain (SPX) Oct 03, 2017
Black holes appear to play a fundamental role in how galaxies evolve throughout their life during a phase in which they are active and consume material from the galaxy itself. During this phase, the galaxy hosts an active galactic nucleus (AGN), and the effect that this nuclear activity produces in the galaxy is known as AGN feedback. This feedback can take place in different forms: the AG ... more
