New bar for water-splitting, CO2-splitting techniques set

01-Sep-2017

Researchers from North Carolina State University have significantly boosted the efficiency of two techniques, for splitting water to create hydrogen gas and splitting carbon dioxide (CO2) to create carbon monoxide (CO). The products are valuable feedstock for clean energy and chemical ...

New technique 'sees' radioactive material even after it's gone

05-Jul-2017

A new technique allows researchers to characterize nuclear material that was in a location even after the nuclear material has been removed - a finding that has significant implications for nuclear nonproliferation and security applications. "Basically, we can see nuclear material that is no ...

New fabric coating could thwart chemical weapons, save lives

08-Jun-2017

Chemical weapons are nightmarish. In a millisecond, they can kill hundreds, if not thousands. But, in a study, scientists report that they have developed a way to adhere a lightweight coating onto fabrics that is capable of neutralizing a subclass of these toxins -- those that are delivered ...

New way to control light with electric fields

29-May-2017

"Our method is similar to the technique used to provide the computing capabilities of computers," says Linyou Cao, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper on the work. "In computers, an electric field is used to turn electric ...

Using light to control curvature of plastics remotely

24-Mar-2017

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a technique that uses light to get two-dimensional (2-D) plastic sheets to curve into three-dimensional (3-D) structures, such as spheres, tubes or bowls. The advance builds on earlier work by the same research team, which focused on ...

New technique for creating NV-doped nanodiamonds may be boost for quantum computing

07-Nov-2016

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a new technique for creating NV-doped single-crystal nanodiamonds, only four to eight nanometers wide, which could serve as components in room-temperature quantum computing technologies. These doped nanodiamonds also hold promise for ...
