The fate of the Efimov trimer under confinement

As well as providing new fundamental insights into this prototypical few-body problem, new research results have important implications for on-going atomic experiments aimed at detecting universality in the three-body system, and it opens new avenues towards the realisation of long-lived many-body states of trimers.

New study helps uncover mechanism behind solid-solid phase transitions

Two solids made of the same elements but with different geometric arrangements of the atoms, or crystal phases, can produce materials with different properties. Coal and diamond offer a spectacular example of this effect. Researchers have now found that some crystals have an easier time of making the solid-solid transition, if they take it in two steps.

Acid-free approach leads to strong conductive carbon nanotube threads

The very idea of fibers made of carbon nanotubes is neat, but Rice University scientists are making them neat - literally. The single-walled carbon nanotubes in new fibers line up like a fistful of uncooked spaghetti through a process designed by chemist Angel Martí and his colleagues.
