Superoxide gives lithium-air batteries a jolt

18-Jan-2016

While lithium-ion batteries have transformed our everyday lives, researchers are currently trying to find new chemistries that could offer even better energy possibilities. One of these chemistries, lithium-air, could promise greater energy density but has certain drawbacks as well. Now, thanks ...

Annihilating nanoscale defects

15-Jan-2016

Target dates are critical when the semiconductor industry adds small, enhanced features to our favorite devices by integrating advanced materials onto the surfaces of computer chips. Missing a target means postponing a device's release, which could cost a company millions of dollars or, worse, ...

High-energy X-rays give industry affordable way to optimize cast iron

09-Dec-2015

Cast iron can be modified through the manufacturing process to optimize its mechanical and physical properties, such as strength and durability. But the manufacturing process is as much art as science, producing good results yet not capturing cast iron's full potential. Controversy still exists ...

The origin of tungsten-ditelluride's magnetoresistance

22-Oct-2015

Scientists recently discovered that tungsten ditelluride (WTe2) is electronically three-dimensional with a low anisotropy. Anisotropy reflects the change in properties of a material when the direction of the current or the applied magnetic field is varied. Similar to graphite consisting of weakly ...

Copper clusters capture and convert carbon dioxide to make fuel

11-Aug-2015

Capture and convert - this is the motto of carbon dioxide reduction, a process that stops the greenhouse gas before it escapes from chimneys and power plants into the atmosphere and instead turns it into a useful product. One possible end product is methanol, a liquid fuel and the focus of a ...

Discovery sheds light on nuclear reactor fuel behavior during a severe event

New discovery about melted UO2 structure will enhance understanding of reactor safety during meltdown scenario

24-Nov-2014

A new discovery about the atomic structure of uranium dioxide will help scientists select the best computational model to simulate severe nuclear reactor accidents. Using the Advanced Photon Source (APS), a Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility, researchers from DOE's Argonne ...
