Hot-Bronze Thin Film

MagLab researchers have discovered a new fabrication of Nb3Sn that will could yield compact, portable accelerators for industrial, medical and environmental applications.

Bright field STEM cross-section images of Nb3Sn films produced using (a) the newly-discovered hot bronze method and (b) the post-reaction method.

Fungal findings

New research reveals molecular architecture of fungal cell walls and the structural responses to stresses, work that could help develop more effective anti fungal medications for millions.
