Scientists thought to melt gold at room temperature.
An international researcher team stumbled upon this almost-revealed revelation.
Ludvig de Knoop, a postdoc from Chalmers University of Technology, was interested in seeing how the highest magnification level of an electron microscope influenced gold atoms.
Inda I was stunned by the discovery, u he said, after finding that the surface layers were melted – at room temperature.
”This is a phenomenal phenomenon, and it gives us new, basic knowledge of gold, Kn Knoop added.
Using computational modeling, the team learned that the molten phase is not due to temperature increase, but due to defects in high electric fields.
Simply put, gold atoms are excited.
Think of the electric field as an affection for love: In the immediate vicinity, atoms become tongue bound, sweaty and generally clear – they lose their regular structures and leave almost all connections.
According to Chalmers, olarak The discovery of how gold atoms can lose their structures in this way is not only extraordinary, but also scientifically groundbreaking.
Knoop & Co., together with Mikael Juhani Kuisma from the University's Jyväskylä University, said n it opened new paths in material science. Ünivers
The researchers have also found that it is possible to switch between a solid and molten structure that could lead to new types of sensors, catalysts, transistors and contactless components.
Bulundu Because the surface can control the properties of the atomic layers and change them, it opens the door to different types of applications, ğ says Eva Olsson, co-author of the Physics Department.
Nevertheless, do not expect a criminal organization to melt gold blocks by increasing the electric field.
Eğ I can tell that this is not possible,, said Knoop Digital Trends.
. It requires a voltage that is not possible to melt the surface of any object (such as a golden cone) of a pair of nanometers Bir.
All details of the research were published in the journal. Physical Review Materials.
