Clean energy 'bio batteries' a step closer

21-11-2014

Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria. A report published shows how electrons hop across otherwise electrically insulating areas of bacterial proteins, and that the rate of electrical transfer is dependent ...

Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor'

21-11-2014

Physicists at the University of Groningen led by Professor of Functional Nanomaterials Beatriz Noheda have discovered a new manganese compound that is produced by tension in the crystal structure of terbium manganese oxide. The technique they used to create this new material could open the way to ...

Scientists get to the heart of fool's gold as a solar material

20-11-2014

As the installation of photovoltaic solar cells continues to accelerate, scientists are looking for inexpensive materials beyond the traditional silicon that can efficiently convert sunlight into electricity. Theoretically, iron pyrite - a cheap compound that makes a common mineral known as ...

The fundamental constants are still constant

Atomic clocks prove the stability of the mass ratio of protons to electrons

20-11-2014

Are the fundamental constants really constant? Recent investigations carried out at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) have shown that one essential fundamental constant - namely the mass ratio of protons to electrons - can have changed only by a maximum of one part in a million over ...

When thawing glaciers release pollutants

19-11-2014

As glaciers increasingly melt in the wake of climate change, it is not only the landscape that is affected. Thawing glaciers also release many industrial pollutants stored in the ice into the environment. Now, within the scope of a Swiss National Science Foundation project, researchers from the ...

'Topological insulators' promising for spintronics, quantum computers

18-11-2014

Researches have uncovered "smoking-gun" evidence to confirm the workings of an emerging class of materials that could make possible "spintronic" devices and practical quantum computers far more powerful than today's technologies. The materials are called "topological insulators." Unlike ordinary ...

Major class of fracking chemicals no more toxic than common household substances

18-11-2014

The "surfactant" chemicals found in samples of fracking fluid collected in five states were no more toxic than substances commonly found in homes, according to a first-of-its-kind analysis by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder. Fracking fluid is largely comprised of water and sand, ...

Towards future lab-on-chip applications

18-11-2014

Fraunhofer FEP presents latest approaches to fabricate OLED devices for lab-on-a-chip-applications using either near UV electroluminescence (EL) or optically modulated green light to stimulate fluorescent dye markers. Smart and portable medical equipment is essential for fast and easy ...

UH chemists develop porous molecules that bind greenhouse gases

17-11-2014

A team of University of Houston (UH) chemistry researchers have developed a molecule that assembles spontaneously into a lightweight structure with microscopic pores capable of binding large quantities of several potent greenhouse gases. "Greenhouse gases, such a carbon dioxide, have received ...

Self-doping may be the key to superconductivity in room temperature

17-11-2014

Swedish materials researchers at Linköping and Uppsala University and Chalmers University of Technology, in collaboration with researchers at the Swiss Synchrotron Light Source (SLS) in Switzerland investigated the superconductor YBa2Cu3O7-x (abbreviated YBCO) using advanced X-ray ...
