Melting without heat?

Originally posted on Centre for Computational Physics:
Why do materials melt? Because they get hot – this normally means that the atoms that make up the material vibrate so energetically that they escape their confined environment and start to move around. This notion of atoms heating up and vibrating more and more gets confused at…

A wonderful structure produced with modern technology of 3D printing arrived today by post. The 3D print was produced in the group of Dr. C. Heath Turner, Associate Professor at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, the University of Alabama, USA. The structure represents an approximatelly one hundred thousand times magnified…
