A resonance triggers chemical reactions between the coldest molecules

Chemical reactions occur in our everyday life. Our basic knowledge of chemistry tells us that temperature, concentration, surface area, and catalysts can speed up or slow down chemical reactions. For example, a carton of milk would spoil much faster if kept out of a refrigerator.... click to read more

Holographic sound fields shape 3D matter without a touch

3D printing is about to revolutionize the way we fabricate products. Building up objects point-by-point (also called additive manufacturing) enables the fabrication of single parts of arbitrary shape and composition without slow and complicated machining steps. The realm of 3D printing is still young and... click to read more
