June 2013, News, , , ,

The Young Minds Section of Catania, Italy, had the pleasure to invite Prof. Andries Meijerink, from Utrecht University, for a seminar on rare earths. He has contributed significantly to the development of this field through his research and publications. Rare earths are also called Lanthanides, derived from the Greek word “λανθανειν” (to lie hidden). This group of elements, hidden at the bottom of the periodic table, remains scarce as China decided to limit the export of these elements.
Rare earths are not well known. However, the unique chemical, magnetic and optical properties give them…

Physicists peer into hydrogen atom using quantum microscope

By Jorge Rivero González. Published on 25 June 2013 in:
June 2013, News, , ,

An international team of physicists has directly observed for the first time the orbital structure of an excited hydrogen atom by building a quantum-like microscope. This device allowed them to gaze deep inside the hydrogen atom by magnifying its orbital structure to laboratory-scale dimensions.

Quantum mechanics rules the micro-scale world. The development of this theory in the early 20th century changed the way scientists understand nature. Central to this theory is the concept of…
