  A new study by researchers from the University of Leicester has furthered our understanding of how tiny nanosystems function, unlocking the potential to create new materials using nanosized ‘building blocks’.<br><br>The study, which has been published in the prestigious academic journal Physical Review Letters, used a novel laser technique to examine in rich detail the structure and internal atomic motion of a small cluster containing an acetylene molecule and a single helium atom.<br><br><a href="http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/press/press-releases/2014/july/breakthrough-laser-experiment-reveals-liquid-like-motion-of-atoms-within-an-ultra-cold-cluster">READ MORE ON UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER</a><br><br>
