What is Pump–Probe Spectroscopy and Pulsed Laser Spectroscopy?

Filed in Academics, Chemical Engineering by on January 1, 2016 0 Comments • views: 1252

Pump–probe spectroscopy is the simplest approach and one of the most common techniques utilized in Femtochemistry. Also known as time-resolved spectroscopy, Pump-probe spectroscopy is the study of dynamic processes in materials or chemical compounds by using spectroscopy, that is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Process study occurs during illumination of the subject material, although the technique […]

Graphene Stock Worth Investing In

Every once in a while scientists stumble upon something so interesting that the term they coin for it quickly becomes a buzzword which then buzzes itself out of the lab and into the mainstream. When it does hit the mainstream, it inevitably catches the attention of investors. Such was definitely the case with nanotechnology stocks we’ve […]

Saturn’s Moon Titan May Host Life Thanks to Liquid Methane, Chemical Engineers Say

According to a group of chemical engineers and cosmobiologists, Titan – often referred to as Saturn VI – may host conditions that would allow for life to thrive and survive on its surface. We already know that the largest Luna Saturni is only natural satellite in our Solar System that has a dense atmosphere. We also know […]

Nanodiamonds Used to Create Hydrogen Through Detonation Synthesis

Nanotechnology never ceases to amaze me – nanodiamonds, detonation synthesis, all that trouble to make hydrogen? Sounds odd but it gets really interesting as you read the entire paper entitled “Ethanol and methanol steam reforming on transition metal catalysts supported on detonation synthesis nanodiamonds for hydrogen production.” The authoring of the paper was a collaborative […]

Scientists have made a stunning discovery 40 light-years away from us in Cancer the crab constellation. A Yale University team of researchers under the leadership of Nikku Madhusudhan claim to have found a Super-Earth orbiting a star. That was back in 2012. Now, another team found an Earth-sized planet also made of diamond! The findings […]

Nanotechnology Courses in Chicago, IL

Ottie, one of the Chemical Engineering News readers sent in a question asking if there are  any “Chicago City Colleges that are offering nanotechnology courses directly, not through a 3rd party?” The answer, unfortunatelly, is no – at the present time there are no Nanotech classes offered by the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC). There are […]

Curing CVI – U.S. Researcher Invents a New Organ: a Miniature Heart!

The saying ‘Need is the mother of invention’ has been proven true once again! This time it has been Q.E.D’ed by Narine Sarvazyan, Ph.D., a researcher from George Washington University who invented a new human organ – a mini heart. Dr. Sarvazyan needed to find a new way of delivery (return) of blood from veins […]

Last February, I published an article investigating alleged links between carbon nanotubes, one of the wonder children of Nanotechnology, and Mesothelioma, a rare type of malignant cancer. Now, a year on, it is high time to take another look at the subject. I started by checking with a personal injury attorney – after all, if […]

Rarest Minerals in the World Classified and Cataloged by Scientists views: 3181

Scientists have cataloged 2,500 of the Earth’s rarest minerals. Their scarcity is such that the entire global supply of most of those minerals wouldn’t be enough to fill up a shot glass. Each of those ‘rocks’ can be found in no more than five locations around the World. In the most extreme example of this scarcity […]
