Figuring out how we get the nitrogen we need

Figuring out how we get the nitrogen we need Caltech chemists image nitrogenase's active site at work

30-10-2014

Nitrogen is an essential component of all living systems, playing important roles in everything from proteins and nucleic acids to vitamins. It is the most abundant element in Earth's atmosphere and is literally all around us, but in its gaseous state, N2,, it is inert and useless to most ...

Can the wave function of an electron be divided and trapped?

30-10-2014

New research by physicists from Brown University puts the profound strangeness of quantum mechanics in a nutshell — or, more accurately, in a helium bubble. Experiments led by Humphrey Maris, professor of physics at Brown, suggest that the quantum state of an electron — the electron's wave ...

New evidence for an exotic, predicted superconducting state

29-10-2014

Superconductors and magnetic fields do not usually get along. But a research team led by a Brown University physicist has produced new evidence for an exotic superconducting state, first predicted a half-century ago, that can indeed arise when a superconductor is exposed to a strong magnetic ...

Where did all the oil go?

A UCSB professor's analysis traces oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon event to its resting place on the Gulf of Mexico's deep floor

29-10-2014

Due to its unprecedented scope, the damage assessment caused by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been a challenge. One unsolved puzzle is the location of 2 million barrels of submerged oil thought to be trapped in the deep ocean.UC Santa Barbara's David Valentine and ...

Berkeley Lab study reveals molecular structure of water at gold electrodes

28-10-2014

When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding of a diverse set of phenomena from biology to materials science. When the solid surface is ...

TSRI chemists achieve new technique with profound implications for drug development

Method expands options for making pure batches of 'one-handed' molecules

27-10-2014

Breaking carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds to alter existing molecules to create new ones is an increasingly important avenue for drug development. Of particular interest is mirror-image or "one-handed" compounds, but C-H breaking methods for making pure batches of these molecules have worked with only ...

Super stable garnet ceramics may be ideal for high-energy lithium batteries

23-10-2014

Scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have discovered exceptional properties in a garnet material that could enable development of higher-energy battery designs. The ORNL-led team used scanning transmission electron microscopy to take an atomic-level look at a ...

A quick look at electron-boson coupling

Berkeley Lab researchers use ultrafast spectroscopy on many body effects

10-10-2014

Imagine being able to tune the properties of a solid material just by flashing pulses of light on it, for example turning an insulator into a superconductor. That is just one potential payoff down-the-road from the physical phenomenon of electrons and atoms interacting with ultrashort pulses of ...

How to make a 'perfect' solar absorber

New system aims to harness the full spectrum of available solar radiation

02-10-2014

The key to creating a material that would be ideal for converting solar energy to heat is tuning the material's spectrum of absorption just right: It should absorb virtually all wavelengths of light that reach Earth's surface from the sun — but not much of the rest of the spectrum, since that ...

Graphene imperfections key to creating hypersensitive 'electronic nose'

24-09-2014

Researchers have discovered a way to create a highly sensitive chemical sensor based on the crystalline flaws in graphene sheets. The imperfections have unique electronic properties that the researchers were able to exploit to increase sensitivity to absorbed gas molecules by 300 times. The study ...
