Glass flow in PNAS
We have designed a method to indirectly measure the viscosity of glass - something that required unfeasible observation times at human scale - based on its elastic properties. The results of the research, published this week in PNAS, questions the validity of current theories of glass formation

 It took us eight years, and it only features a few picoseconds of a protein life in reaction to an energy shot. But this atom-scale Truman show, proposed in the ERC Femtoscopy project, has now -literally- seen the light. Using Femtosecond Stimulated Raman Scattering, we determined the whole spectrum of vibrational amplitudes of a photo-excited heme protein with extremely high temporal resolution, which allows animating the molecular normal modes. Enjoy the full story, providing new insights for the energy trasport at the atomic scale, in the Nature Chemistry paper
