Rice University chemists who developed a unique form of graphene have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles that turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications. Laser-induced graphene, created by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour last year, is a flexible ...
Rice University scientists make tantalum oxide practical for high-density devices
Scientists at Rice University have created a solid-state memory technology that allows for high-density storage with a minimum incidence of computer errors. The memories are based on tantalum oxide, a common insulator in electronics. Applying voltage to a 250-nanometer-thick sandwich of graphene, ...
Scientists find 3-D boron nitride structures will excel at thermal management for electronics
Three-dimensional structures of boron nitride might be the right stuff to keep small electronics cool, according to scientists at Rice University. Rice researchers Rouzbeh Shahsavari and Navid Sakhavand have completed the first theoretical analysis of how 3-D boron nitride might be used as a ...
What if peanut brittle, under certain conditions, behaved like taffy? Something like that happens to a two-dimensional dichalcogenide analyzed by scientists at Rice University.Rice researchers calculated that atomically thin layers of molybdenum disulfide can take on the qualities of plastic ...
Rice University lab calculates unique electronic qualities of double-walled carbon nanotubes
Rice University researchers have determined that two walls are better than one when turning carbon nanotubes into materials like strong, conductive fibers or transistors.Rice materials scientist Enrique Barrera and his colleagues used atomic-level models of double-walled nanotubes to see how they ...
Graphene quantum dots made from coal, introduced in 2013 by the Rice University lab of chemist James Tour, can be engineered for specific semiconducting properties in either of two single-step processes.In a new study this week in the American Chemical Society journal Applied Materials & ...
What lies beneath growing islands of graphene is important to its properties, according to a new study led by Rice University. Scientists at Rice analyzed patterns of graphene - a single-atom-thick sheet of carbon - grown in a furnace via chemical vapor deposition. They discovered that the ...
Rice researchers develop accurate measure of aggregating particles that block oil production lines
Rice University researchers have developed an easy and accurate technique to detect and quantify the amount of asphaltene precipitated from crude oils, which bedevils the oil industry by clogging wells and flow lines.Asphaltene is a complex of hydrocarbon molecules found in crude. As the name ...
Rice physicists build superconductor analog, observe antiferromagnetic order
Using ultracold atoms as a stand-in for electrons, a Rice University-based team of physicists has simulated superconducting materials and made headway on a problem that's vexed physicists for nearly three decades.The research was carried out by an international team of experimental and ...
In Rice University study, treated carbon-60 molecules remove metals from liquids
Treated buckyballs not only remove valuable but potentially toxic metal particles from water and other liquids, but also reserve them for future use, according to scientists at Rice University.The Rice lab of chemist Andrew Barron has discovered that carbon-60 fullerenes (aka buckyballs) that ...
