Such particles can potentially be used for targeted drug delivery.
Thanks to a special technology, the image can be seen both up close and from afar – its levels of brightness and contrast remain equally high.
Once you put particles of hematite in glass, it becomes attracted to magnets, remaining transparent at the same time.
The prism can be used to calibrate devices with angular scales. Beams produced by this prism went through liquid nitrogen. As it disperses them, they become clearly visible.
This material allows scientists to create important elements for optical isolators to be applied in optic communication lines. In the picture, you can see the way it glows in a magnetic field.
The photo was taken during a study aimed at increasing the efficiency of solar batteries.
Those are polycrystals of a functional organic material called melamine-barbiturate. This material is interesting because of its crystal structure. All of its molecules are almost of the same size and are connected by hydrogen bonds placed at an angle of 120º.
The effect that can be seen on the picture is called photoluminescence. Quantum dots made out of cesium perovskite receive ultraviolet light that gets absorbed by quantum dots and then re-emitted, but in the spectral range.
A sample for biochemical analysis of blood plasma was produced with the help of an innovative terahertz radiation method.
