Scientists Discover Dielectron Charging of Water Nano-droplets

Working together at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Tel Aviv University, scientists have discovered when the number of water molecules in a cluster exceeds 83, two excess electrons may attach to it — forming dielectrons — making it a doubly negatively charged nano droplet.

Scientists Discover Dielectron Charging of Water Nano-droplets

Scientists have discovered fundamental steps of charging of nano-sized water droplets and unveiled the long-sought-after mechanism of hydrogen emission from irradiated water. 

Professor Aims to Dispel Astrophysics Myths

Deirdre Shoemaker has become accustomed to people not believing in black holes — even one of her stepson’s teachers.

Flower-Like Defects May Help Graphene Respond to Stress

Researchers at Georgia Tech and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have described a family of seven potential defect structures that may appear in sheets of graphene and imaged examples of the lowest-energy defect in the family.
