Researchers from Charles University Detail Findings in Materials Science

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Science is now available. According to news reporting originating from Prague, Czech Republic, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Growth of Cu nanoparticles in a pulsed gas aggregation cluster source was studied. The cluster growth is enhanced by an energy transport inside the aggregation chamber fed by argon that is delivered in short pulses repeated with low frequency."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Charles University, "The effect of pressure, varied during the pulse, on the cluster growth was estimated from time-resolved measurements of mass/size cluster distribution. The cluster mass and the cluster production well correlate with pressure changes. Several stages of cluster growth during the gas-pulse were recognized."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Not only larger clusters but also significantly enhanced particle and mass fluxes were observed."
