Graphene oxide nanomaterials: Toxicity mechanisms

Date: Jul 1, 2018

Author: Steve Down

Typical environmental levels of graphene oxide nanoparticles modify the abundances of nearly 250 proteins in zebrafish larvae, tested as a model aquatic species, and bring about malformations and increased mortality, a new proteomics study has revealed.

Ultraviolet in stereo: Photoelectric effect

Date: Jul 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Ultraviolet can assist understanding the photoelectric effect whereby a photon incident on a material causes the ejection of an electron from that material. Researchers in Swizterland have now used attosecond laser pulses to measure the time evolution of this effect in molecules and so can deduce the exact location of such photoionization events.

19th Century photography: X-ray restoration art

Date: Jul 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Early photography based on the daguerreotype method used silver plates. Unfortunately some of the oldest known photographic artefacts have faded with the years. Now a team in Canada has demonstrated that they can use a synchrotron light source to carry out rapid-scanning micro-X-ray fluorescence imaging of daguerreotypes and reveal the latent, long-since faded image.
