To bridge LEDs' green gap, scientists think small... really small

Nanostructures half a DNA strand-wide show promise for efficient LEDs

08-04-2014

Nanostructures half the breadth of a DNA strand could improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes (LEDs), especially in the "green gap," a portion of the spectrum where LED efficiency plunges, simulations at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center ...

Big step for next-generation fuel cells and electrolyzers

Researchers at Berkeley and Argonne National Labs discover highly promising new class of nanocatalyst

03-03-2014

A big step in the development of next-generation fuel cells and water-alkali electrolyzers has been achieved with the discovery of a new class of bimetallic nanocatalysts that are an order of magnitude higher in activity than the target set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for 2017. The new ...

Tracking catalytic reactions in microreactors

25-02-2014

A pathway to more effective and efficient synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs and other flow reactor chemical products has been opened by a study in which for the first time the catalytic reactivity inside a microreactor was mapped in high resolution from start-to-finish. The results not only ...

Hydrogen fuel from sunlight

02-09-2013

In the search for clean, green sustainable energy sources to meet human needs for generations to come, perhaps no technology matches the ultimate potential of artificial photosynthesis. Bionic leaves that could produce energy-dense fuels from nothing more than sunlight, water and ...

No evidence of residential property value impacts near US wind turbines

30-08-2013

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) analyzed more than 50,000 home sales near 67 wind facilities in 27 counties across nine U.S. states, yet was unable to uncover any impacts to nearby home property values. "This is the second of two major studies we have conducted on this topic ...

Size matters as nanocrystals go through phases

28-08-2013

Palladium nanocubes interacting with hydrogen gas were directly observed through in situ luminescence to reveal that size can make a much bigger difference on phase transformations than scientists previously believed. Palladium nanocubes interacting with hydrogen gas were directly observed ...

Computer simulations indicate calcium carbonate has a dense liquid phase

Berkeley Lab research could help scientists predict how carbon is stored underground

26-08-2013

Computer simulations conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could help scientists make sense of a recently observed and puzzling wrinkle in one of nature’s most important chemical processes. It turns out that calcium carbonate—the ...

Raising the IQ of smart windows

19-08-2013

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have designed a new material to make smart windows even smarter. The material is a thin coating of nanocrystals embedded in glass that can dynamically modify sunlight as it passes through a window. ...

A path to better MTV-MOFs

Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley researchers develop method for predicting adsorption in carbon dioxide-scrubbing materials

13-08-2013

Scientists would like to apply the same principles by which baking soda removes food odors from refrigerators or silica powder keeps moisture away from electronic devices to scrub carbon dioxide from the exhaust gases of fossil fuel power plants. An excellent candidate for this task is the class ...

3D IR images now in full color

Berkeley Lab and University of Wisconsin researchers unveil FTIR spectro-microtomography

07-08-2013

An iconic moment in the history of Hollywood movie magic was born in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz when Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale stepped out of the black and white world of Kansas into the rainbow colored world of Oz. An iconic moment in the history of infrared imaging may have been born ...
