Researchers Part Water
Hamburg, Germany (SPX) Sep 12, 2014
Using an "electric prism", scientists have found a new way of separating water molecules that differ only in their nuclear spin states and, under normal conditions, do not part ways. Since water is such a fundamental molecule in the universe, the recent study may impact a multitude of research areas ranging from biology to astrophysics. The research team from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) - a collaboration of DESY, the Max Planck Society and Universitat Hamburg - reported ... read more
