Physicists from Liege have succeeded in understanding and controlling the superconductivity of materials placed in a magnetic field.
Beetles have developed extraordinary adhesion techniques. Thanks to the work done in the Microfluidics Lab we understand these techniques better, with a view to reproducing them.
By mastering the fabrication process of aluminium nanowires, physicists have managed to precisely determine the limit beyond which the superconductivity of these wires is suppressed, even at a temperature close to absolute zero.
Des chercheurs du GRASP de l'ULg ont réussi à faire nager des microparticules métalliques dans de l’eau et contrôler leur trajectoire. Une prouesse qui ne restera sans doute pas sans applications.
A video by researchers at the University of Liege has been awarded a prize by the American Physical Society. In it, you can discover the strange behaviour of gas bubbles in a boiling liquid!
