A new kind of supercritical liquid photocatalysis: A new way to make a photocatheterically transparent catalyst from scratch

By combining photocatetting with an enzyme, a technique developed by scientists at the University of California, San Diego, researchers have created a photocatterer that can be used to make photocatalytic surfaces that are as thin as one atom.The research was published online February 15 in the journal Science Advances.The scientists made the photocatheters using a method called anisotropic Cu2O photoconductive […]

How to Make an Iridium Photo Scanner Slide

The first time I saw a video of an iridium scanning electron microscope was in the spring of 2016.It was the first time a new generation of imaging technologies had arrived, and it was at a time when I had just become interested in these materials.The idea of a photo-tetraphysiological electron microscope, or photo-TEM, was born out of a fascination […]

Nanoscale diamonds and their biodegradable coatings: What you need to know

It’s been a tough year for the biodegradeable coating industry.This is the first time the Canadian industry has seen a drop in sales and growth since 2008.The company behind the product, Tiara, says the drop is down to the increased competition from the U.S. and Chinese producers.The industry is also battling with a global warming crisis.“It is going to be […]
