Argon is not the “Dope” for Metallic HydrogenExternal link

Researchers from the Carnegie Institute of Science, Uppsala University and the University of Chicago found that argon-doped hydrogen stayed in its molecular form even up to the highest pressures, unable to force hydrogen into a superconductive, metallic state. Read More »

Controlling Fast X-ray Pulses with Laser LightExternal link

Researchers at Lund University and LSU have used laser pulses to change a gas of atoms so that rather than absorbing the x-ray light along one direction, the atoms are instead stimulated to emit x-ray light along a completely different direction, and at a time that the scientists can control.
