Changing the color of light

University of Delaware research team awarded $1 million Keck Foundation grant

28-Jul-2015

Researchers at the University of Delaware have received a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to explore a new idea that could improve solar cells, medical imaging and even cancer treatments. Simply put, they want to change the color of light.They won't be tinkering with what you see ...

Brown Universtity begins study of early life chemical exposures

28-Jul-2015

Exposure to the endocrine disrupting chemicals bisphenol A, triclosan and phthalates is ubiquitous in the United States, raising concerns that they may affect health. With a new four-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, Brown University epidemiologist Joseph Braun ...

Cages offer new direction in sustainable catalyst design

27-Jul-2015

University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have developed a new approach to structuring the catalysts used in essential reactions in the chemical and energy fields. The advance offers a pathway for industries to wean themselves off of platinum, one of the scarcest metals in the earth's crust.In an ...

Spintronics just got faster

24-Jul-2015

In a tremendous boost for spintronic technologies, EPFL scientists have shown that electrons can jump through spins much faster than previously thought.Electrons spin around atoms, but also spin around themselves, and can cross over from one spin state to another. A property which can be ...

Economic slump, not natural gas boom, responsible for drop in CO2 emissions

23-Jul-2015

The 11 percent decrease in climate change-causing carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. between 2007 and 2013 was caused by the global financial recession - not the reduced use of coal, research from the University of California Irvine, the University of Maryland, and the International Institute ...

An easy, scalable and direct method for synthesizing graphene in silicon microelectronics

Korean researchers grow 4-inch diameter, high-quality, multi-layer graphene on desired silicon substrates

23-Jul-2015

In the last decade, graphene has been intensively studied for its unique optical, mechanical, electrical and structural properties, but most graphene fabrication methods are not compatible with silicon microelectronics, thus blocking graphene's leap from potential wonder material to actual ...

Bringing back the magic in metamaterials

23-Jul-2015

A single drop of blood is teeming with microorganisms - imagine if we could see them, and even nanometer-sized viruses, with the naked eye. That's a real possibility with what scientists call a "perfect lens." The lens hasn't been created yet but it is a theoretical perfected optical lens made ...

Shallow fracking raises questions for water, new Stanford research shows

23-Jul-2015

The United States now produces about as much crude oil as Saudi Arabia does, and enough natural gas to export in large quantities. That's thanks to hydraulic fracturing, a mining practice that involves a rock-cracking pressurized mix of water, sand and chemicals.Ongoing research by Stanford ...

NIST calculates high cost of hydrogen pipelines, shows how to reduce it

22-Jul-2015

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has put firm numbers on the high costs of installing pipelines to transport hydrogen fuel - and also found a way to reduce those costs.Pipelines to carry hydrogen cost more than other gas pipelines because of the measures required to ...

Fossil fuel emissions will complicate radiocarbon dating, warns scientist

22-Jul-2015

Fossil fuel emissions could soon make it impossible for radiocarbon dating to distinguish new materials from artefacts that are hundreds of years old. Carbon released by burning fossil fuels is diluting radioactive carbon-14 and artificially raising the radiocarbon 'age' of the atmosphere, ...
