After cleaning, repolishing and remeasuring silicon orbs used for previous measurements, a team of researchers reported a new value of the Avogadro constant in Metrologia in March.
To solve that problem, researchers at the Australian Centre for Precision Optics, which is home to The Avogadro Project, are crafting nearly perfect spheres made of a highly pure and very stable form of silicon.
The mole, symbol mol, is the unit of amount of substance of a specified elementary entity, which may be an atom, molecule, ion, electron, any other particle or a specified group of such particles; its magnitude is set by fixing the numerical value of the Avogadro constant to be equal to exactly 6.

And while his grasp on mathematical history is thorough, physics fans may notice that in a chapter on a mathematical physics problem he stumbles on historical detail: He misstates the chronology of particle physics discoveries and attributes the explanation of atomic isotopes in 1911 to Amedeo Avogadro, who died in 1856.
