Two distinctly different liquid states of water — ScienceDaily

Using X-ray lasers, researchers at Stockholm University have been able to follow the transformation between two distinct different liquid states of water, both being made of H2O molecules. At around -63 Centigrade the two liquids exist at different pressure regimes with a density difference of 20%. By rapidly varying the pressure before the sample could freeze, it was possible to observe one liquid changing into the other in real time. Their findings are published in the journal Science.

Water, both common and necessary for life on Earth, behaves very strangely in comparison with other substances. How water’s properties such as density, specific heat, viscosity and compressibility respond to changes in pressure and temperature is completely opposite to other liquids that we know. Consequently, water is often called “anomalous.” If water would have behaved as a “normal liquid” we would not exist, since marine life could not have developed. However,

Liquid Instruments was founded in Canberra by a team of experimental physicists and engineers, including former researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Their equipment helps scientists, engineers, students and professionals seamlessly acquire data, run measurements and control their experiments.

“We started Liquid Instruments because we were frustrated with current test and measurement equipment and realised that a new approach based on a different technology could really make a difference,” says Liquid Instruments CEO Professor Daniel Shaddock.

The company’s flagship product, Moku:Lab, integrates 12 precision test and measurement instruments into a single, compact hardware device.

Looking at liquid cells in variable gravity

What resembles a donut or the iris of an eye is actually a liquid cell illuminated from below.


Part of the Chemo-Hydrodynamic Patterns and Instabilities (CHYPI) experiment that recently flew on the 73rd ESA parabolic flight campaign, this cell has a lot to offer the chemical solutions industry.

Researchers behind CHYPI are seeking to validate a theoretical model, developed by Anne De Wit and her team at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, to control the formation of new chemical products.

To do this, they needed to understand the flow reactions of chemical liquids in gravity and microgravity conditions, so they took to the skies for an extraordinary parabolic flight campaign that was adjusted to COVID-19 safety measures.

The science team from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and TU Dresden mixed two reactant solutions in a liquid cell, creating a red-brown ferric thiocyanate solution. They found, that under

AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X pushed to a record 6362 MHz on liquid nitrogen

In context: It’s no secret that AMD is stealing Intel’s thunder and slowly but surely chipping away some sizeable market share. Now it’s gaining even more respect in the minds of gamers and overclocking enthusiasts with a processor that shatters world records.

Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs dropped this week, and they sold out in minutes at all major retailers, leading to the all-familiar scenario of coveted components ending up on eBay with inflated prices.

There’s a good reason for the high demand, as we’ve noted in our review of the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X. Both CPUs offer solid performance when compared to Intel’s Core i9-10900K in single core and gaming scenarios, but they also offer more cores, which means staggeringly faster productivity performance.

Overclockers are also enthusiastic about the new processors, and have been busy pushing the limits farther using exotic cooling methods. Popular overclocker HiCookie

Scientists develop energy-saving ‘liquid window’ — ScienceDaily

Scientists at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a liquid window panel that can simultaneously block the sun to regulate solar transmission, while trapping thermal heat that can be released through the day and night, helping to reduce energy consumption in buildings.

The NTU researchers developed their ‘smart window’ by placing hydrogel-based liquid within glass panels and found that it can reduce up to 45 per cent of energy consumption in buildings in simulations, compared to traditional glass windows. It is also around 30 per cent more energy efficient than commercially available low-emissivity (energy-efficient) glass, while being cheaper to make.

The ‘smart window’ is the first reported instance in a scientific journal of energy-saving smart windows made using liquid, and supports the NTU Smart Campus vision which aims to develop technologically advanced solutions for a sustainable future.

Windows are a key component in a building’s design, but
