Low-dimensional materials, such as 1D monoatomic
chains, exhibit exotic properties that could find interesting
applications. However, single-atom bonds and their mechanical
characteristics are difficult to study. In a recent study,
scientists from JAIST, Japan, showcase a novel method to
simultaneously image monoatomic platinum chains with a transmission
electron microscope while measuring their bond strength and
conductance during mechanical stretching. This technique will help
answer many questions in the fields of nanomechanics and surface
science.

    The New Fusion technology is based on a phenomenon called triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) which is a process in which two triplet excitons annihilate and produce a higher energy singlet exciton.
