Sublimation: the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase without passing through an intermediate liquid phase; an endothermic phase transition that occurs at temps and pressures below a substance's triple point in its phase diagram; reverse is desublimation or deposition; as you observe an ice crystal in freezing air, an occasional molecule will gain enough energy to break away from its neighbors and enter into the air above

Unexpected phenomenon discovered at the surface of a transition metal oxide material

Caltech Physicists Uncover Novel Phase of Matter—not a conventional metal, insulator, or magnet, but something entirely different. This phase, characterized by an unusual ordering of electrons, offers possibilities for new electronic device functionalities & could hold the solution to a long-standing mystery in condensed matter physics with high-temperature superconductivity—the ability for some materials to conduct electricity without resistance, even at "high" temps approaching –100…
