Data from International University Provide New Insights into Nuclear Physics

June 10, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Researchers detail new data in Nuclear Physics. According to news originating from Dubna, Russia, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In this work, we investigated the ionic transport properties of asymmetric polyethylene terephthalate (PET) track membranes with the thickness of 5 pm. The samples containing single pores and arrays of many pores were fabricated by irradiation with accelerated ions and subsequent physicochemical treatment."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from International University, "The method of etching in the presence of a surface-active agent was used to prepare the pores with highly-tapered tip. The transport of monovalent inorganic ions through the nano-scale holes was studied in a conductivity cell. The effective pore radii, electrical conductance and rectification ratios of pores were measured."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The geometric characteristics of nanopores were investigated using FESEM."
