An Oak Ridge National Laboratory team led by UT’s Takeshi Egami has made a breakthrough that could vastly improve electronics thanks to a better understanding of how liquids behave at a molecular level.

The team was able to measure the bond between hydrogen and oxygen using a form of high-resolution X-ray scattering.

That bond helps determine the viscosity of water, and a greater understanding of its interactions and mechanics will help in studies involving other liquids.
