This 3D printable “lab-grade” open-source microscope will set you back $ 18

A team of researchers from the University of Bath, UK, has developed an open-source design for a 3D printable “laboratory-grade” microscope, which costs as little as $ 18. The OpenFlexure microscope is a fully automated device with motorized sample positioning, focus control, and an accurate mechanical stage. Along with being easy to use, the microscope…

A magnetic twist to graphene

Electrons in materials have properties known as ‘spin’, which is responsible for various properties, the best known of which is magnetism. Permanent magnets, such as those used for refrigerator doors, have to align all spins in their electrons in the same direction. Scientists refer to this behavior as ferromagnetism, and research fields of trying to…

Scientists reveal synergistic effects in dual single-atom catalyst

Single-catalytic catalysts (SACs) are applied in heterogeneous catalysts. Instead of one type of single atom, dual single-atom catalysts (DSACs) provide better catalytic performance than SAC due to the association between dual metal-atoms. Understanding atomic-scale synergistic effects is important for the design of highly effective heterogeneous catalysts in chemical metamorphism. Recently, Prof. Huang Jiahui’s group and…
