New glass for solar cells and LEDs

14-Dec-2017

Using nanoscale grass-like structures, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania have created glass that lets through a large amount of light while appearing hazy. This is the first time that glass has been made with such high levels of haze and light transmittance at the same ...

Synthesizing narrow ribbons of graphene using only light and heat

12-Dec-2017

Silicon -- the shiny, brittle metal commonly used to make semiconductors -- is an essential ingredient of modern-day electronics. But as electronic devices have become smaller and smaller, creating tiny silicon components that fit inside them has become more challenging and more expensive. Now, ...

Channeling graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

12-Dec-2017

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells. ...

Catalyzing carbon dioxide

08-Dec-2017

On any given day, more than 2 million pounds of carbon dioxide are pumped into the atmosphere from factories, emissions from cars and trucks and the burning of coal and natural gas to generate electricity. For many, it's a cause for environmental concern, but for Haotian Wang, it's the perfect ...
