New technique could enable design of hybrid glasses and revolutionize gas storage

01-Sep-2015

A new method of manufacturing glass could lead to the production of 'designer glasses' with applications in advanced photonics, whilst also facilitating industrial scale carbon capture and storage. An international team of researchers report how they have managed to use a relatively new family of ...

Seeing quantum motion

01-Sep-2015

Consider the pendulum of a grandfather clock. If you forget to wind it, you will eventually find the pendulum at rest, unmoving. However, this simple observation is only valid at the level of classical physics. However, quantum mechanics, state that nothing can quite be completely at rest. A team ...

Draw out of the predicted interatomic force

01-Sep-2015

Liquid Bi shows a peculiar dispersion of the acoustic mode, which is related to the Peierls distortion in the crystalline state. These results will provide valuable inspiration to researchers developing new materials in the nanotechnology field.Studies of the atomic dynamics in liquid Bi have ...

Artificial leaf harnesses sunlight for efficient fuel production

A new solar fuel generation system safely creates fuel from sunlight and water.

01-Sep-2015

Generating and storing renewable energy, such as solar or wind power, is a key barrier to a clean-energy economy. Over the past five years, researchers at Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) have made major advances toward this goal, and they now report the development of the first ...

Evidence suggests subatomic particles could defy the standard model

Large Hadron Collider team finds hints of leptons acting out against time-tested predictions

31-Aug-2015

The Standard Model of particle physics, which explains most of the known behaviors and interactions of fundamental subatomic particles, has held up remarkably well over several decades. This far-reaching theory does have a few shortcomings, however - most notably that it doesn't account for ...

Turning alcohols into alkylating agents

Taking a cue from nature

31-Aug-2015

Researchers at Princeton have developed a dual catalyst system that directly installs alkyl groups onto heteroarenes. The new reaction uses simple and abundant alcohols and offers a milder and more widely applicable alternative to existing strategies. The reported transformation is the first to ...

New theory leads to radiationless revolution

Physicists have found a new way confine electromagnetic energy without it leaking away

31-Aug-2015

Physicists have found a radical new way confine electromagnetic energy without it leaking away, akin to throwing a pebble into a pond with no splash. The theory could have broad ranging applications from explaining dark matter to combating energy losses in future technologies. However, it appears ...

Soaking up carbon dioxide and turning it into valuable products

Berkeley Lab researchers double down on a good thing by incorporating catalysts into crystalline sponges

31-Aug-2015

A molecular system for the capture and storage of carbon dioxide has been modified so that it now also holds great promise as a catalyst for converting captured carbon dioxide into valuable chemical products. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ...

Successful boron-doping of graphene nanoribbon

31-Aug-2015

Physicists at the University of Basel succeed in synthesizing boron-doped graphene nanoribbons and characterizing their structural, electronic and chemical properties. The modified material could potentially be used as a sensor for the ecologically damaging nitrogen oxides. Contrary to usual ...
