Better batteries inspired by lowly snail shells

13-Feb-2015

Scientists are using biology to improve the properties of lithium ion batteries. Researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) have isolated a peptide, a type of biological molecule, which binds strongly to lithium manganese nickel oxide (LMNO), a material that can be used to ...

Buckyballs offer environmental benefits

In Rice University study, treated carbon-60 molecules remove metals from liquids

12-Feb-2015

Treated buckyballs not only remove valuable but potentially toxic metal particles from water and other liquids, but also reserve them for future use, according to scientists at Rice University.The Rice lab of chemist Andrew Barron has discovered that carbon-60 fullerenes (aka buckyballs) that ...

New design tool for metamaterials

Berkeley Lab study shows how to predict metamaterial nonlinear optical properties

11-Feb-2015

Metamaterials - artificial nanostructures engineered with electromagnetic properties not found in nature - offer tantalizing future prospects such as high resolution optical microscopes and superfast optical computers. To realize the vast potential of metamaterials, however, scientists will need ...

Study reveals how oxygen is like kryptonite to titanium

Discovery could lead to cost-effective use of cheaper grades of popular material

09-Feb-2015

Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found the mechanism by which titanium, prized for its high strength-to-weight ratio and natural resistance to corrosion, becomes brittle with just a few extra atoms of oxygen. The discovery, described in Science, has the potential to open ...

Cesium atoms shaken, not stirred, to create elusive excitation in superfluid

09-Feb-2015

Scientists discovered in 1937 that liquid helium-4, when chilled to extremely low temperatures, became a superfluid that could leak through glass, overflow its containers, or eternally gush like a fountain. Future Nobel laureate Lev Landau came along in 1941, predicting that superfluid helium-4 ...
