Recent developments in attosecond technology led to table-top x-ray spectroscopy in the soft x-ray range, thus uniting the element- and state-specificity of core-level x-ray absorption spectroscopy with the time resolution to follow electronic dynamics…

Nature Chemistry volume 13, pages420–427 (2021)
Molecular Russian dolls (matryoshkas) have proven useful for testing the limits of preparative supramolecular chemistry but applications of these architectures to problems in other fields are elusive. Here we report a three-shell…
Al2O3 and HfO2 Atomic Layers Deposited in Single and Multilayer Configurations on Titanium and on Stainless Steel for Biomedical Applications
Author: Ivan Spajić, Ehsan Rahimi, Maria Lekka, Ruben Offoiach, Lorenzo Fedrizzi and Ingrid Milošev
Thin films of alumina and hafnia were prepared by atomic layer deposition, with the aim of investigating the use of such films in biomedical applications. Films were deposited on commercially pure titanium and on medical stainless steel…

Single crystals of URu2Si2 show below 17.5 K a transition into an ordered state with a significantly reduced entropy. The low temperature phase is called the hidden order (HO) state, because its microscopic origin is still unknown—there are no charge….

The electrolysis of seawater, a significantly more abundant natural reservoir than freshwater, stands as a promising alternative for sustainable hydrogen production, provided that the competitive chloride electrooxidation is minimized…
Particle and rain erosion mechanisms on Ti/TiN multilayer PVD coatings for carbon fibre reinforced polymer substrates protection

Wear. Volumes 466–467, 15 February 2021
PVD coatings have been studied as candidates for erosion protection of carbon fibre reinforced polymers. Thus, multilayer Ti/TiN coating stacks with different thicknesses ranging from 1.5 to 11 μm have been deposited by pulsed…

Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 256101 – Published 17 December 2020
In ceria-based catalysis, the shape of the catalyst particle, which determines the exposed crystal facets, profoundly affects its reactivity. The vibrational frequency of adsorbed carbon monoxide (CO) can be used as a sensitive probe…
Liquid water is well known as the life ingredient as a solvent. However, so far, it has only been found in liquid state on this planetary surface. The aim of this experiment and technological development was to test if a moss sample is capable of survivin….
Multilayer passive radiative selective cooling coating based on Al/SiO2/SiNx/SiO2/TiO2/SiO2 prepared by dc magnetron sputtering
Author: N.F. Cunha,A. AL-Rjoub, L.Rebouta, L.G.Vieira, S. Lanceros-Mendez
Thin Solid Films
A multilayer passive radiative selective cooling coating based on Al/SiO2/SiNx/SiO2/TiO2/SiO2 prepared by dc magnetron sputtering is presented. The design was first theoretically optimized using the optical constants….
