Scientists ‘Squeeze’ Nanocrystals Into a Solid-Like State – Then Reverse the Process

A team led by scientists at Berkeley Lab found a way to make a liquid-like state behave more like a solid – then reverse it. A droplet of a liquid containing iron oxide nanocrystals, put into an oily liquid containing tiny polymer strands, results in a tiny tug of war on nanoparticles at the intersection of the liquids.
