Continuing the search for better energy materials

21-Jan-2016

Throughout almost two decades of work with energy-related materials, Zhifeng Ren has received a number of grants from the Department of Energy (DOE). His latest DOE grant of $561,275 continues funding he has received for almost 20 years for work in basic energy science. Ren, M.D. Anderson Chair ...

New research could help build better fighter planes and space shuttles

06-Jan-2016

Thousands bound together are still thinner than a single strand of human hair, but with research from Binghamton University, boron nitride nanotubes may help build better fighter planes and space shuttles. A team of scientists led by Changhong Ke, associate professor of mechanical engineering at ...

New device uses carbon nanotubes to snag molecules

23-Dec-2015

Engineers at MIT have devised a new technique for trapping hard-to-detect molecules, using forests of carbon nanotubes. The team modified a simple microfluidic channel with an array of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes -- rolled lattices of carbon atoms that resemble tiny tubes of chicken wire. ...

Nanotube letters spell progress

09-Dec-2015

Never mind the ABCs. Rice University scientists interested in nanotubes are studying their XYΩs. Carbon nanotubes grown in a furnace aren't always straight. Sometimes they curve and kink, and sometimes they branch off in several directions. The Rice researchers realized they now had the tools ...

Capacitor breakthrough

27-Oct-2015

Oct. 21, 2015, was the day that Doc Brown and Marty McFly landed in the future in their DeLorean, with time travel made possible by a "flux capacitor." While the flux capacitor still conjures sci-fi images, capacitors are now key components of portable electronics, computing systems, and electric ...

Are cars nanotube factories on wheels?

Cars appear to produce carbon nanotubes, and some of the evidence has been found in human lungs

21-Oct-2015

Rice University scientists working with colleagues in France have detected the presence of man-made carbon nanotubes in cells extracted from the airways of Parisian children under routine treatment for asthma. Further investigation found similar nanotubes in samples from the exhaust pipes of ...

New approach for 'nanohoops' could energize future devices

13-Oct-2015

When Ramesh Jasti began making tiny organic circular structures using carbon atoms, the idea was to improve carbon nanotubes being developed for use in electronics or optical devices. He quickly realized, however, that his technique might also roll solo. In a new paper, Jasti and five University ...

Smaller is better for nanotube analysis

01-Oct-2015

In a great example of "less is more," Rice University scientists have developed a powerful method to analyze carbon nanotubes in solution. The researchers' variance spectroscopy technique zooms in on small regions in dilute nanotube solutions to take quick spectral snapshots. By analyzing the ...

Better trap for greenhouse gases

24-Sep-2015

Emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas tend to collect within Earth's atmosphere as "greenhouse gases" that are blamed for escalating global warming. So researchers around the globe are on a quest for materials capable of capturing and storing ...

Realizing carbon nanotube integrated circuits

10-Sep-2015

Individual transistors made from carbon nanotubes are faster and more energy efficient than those made from other materials. Going from a single transistor to an integrated circuit full of transistors, however, is a giant leap. "A single microprocessor has a billion transistors in it," said ...
