Improvements in fuel cell design

Fuel cells could possibly replace the batteries of mobile phones and laptop computers, and the UPV

08-10-2014

Fuel cells are totally appropriate systems for substituting the batteries of mobile phones, laptop computers and vehicles. They turn the energy resulting from the combining of hydrogen and oxygen into electrical power, with water vapour being the only waste product. In other words, they generate ...

A study assesses the possibility of turning CO2 into methanol for use in transport

27-05-2014

Tecnalia has collaborated in a study for the European Parliament's Science and Technology Options Assessment Panel (STOA) on the future use of methanol, produced from carbon dioxide, in motorised transport. STOA is the panel that advises MEPs in the sphere of Science and Technology. The study ...

Flatland optics with graphene

27-05-2014

Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, in collaboration with ICFO and Graphenea, introduce a platform technology based on optical antennas for trapping and controlling light with the one-atom-thick material graphene. The experiments show that the dramatically squeezed graphene-guided light can be focused ...

Nanostructures to facilitate the process to eliminate organic contaminants in water

19-05-2014

In her PhD thesis, Silvia Larumbe-Abuin has developed nanostructures that assist in the process to decontaminate water. The nanostructures are coated in titanium oxide to which nitrogen has been added. This allows sunlight, rather than ultraviolet radiation, to trigger the process involving the ...

Does size matter?

The largest electrical networks are not the best

14-05-2014

There is an optimum size for electrical networks if what is being considered is the risk of a blackout. This is the conclusion reached by a scientific study done by researchers at Universidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M); the study analyzes the dynamics of these complex infrastructures. In 1928, ...

Tobacco as an alternative for producing bioethanol

16-04-2014

Researchers at the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre and the IdAB-Institute of Agrobiotechnology have conducted a study into genetically modified tobacco plants from which it is possible to produce between 20 and 40 per cent more ethanol; this would increase their viability as a raw material ...

Record quantum entanglement of multiple dimensions

Two Schrödinger cats which could be alive, dead, or in 101 other states simultaneously

31-03-2014

The states in which elementary particles, such as photons, can be found have properties which are beyond common sense. Superpositions are produced, such as the possibility of being in two places at once, which defies intuition. In addition, when two particles are entangled a connection is ...

Optical nano-tweezers take over the control of nano-objects

Researchers at ICFO have invented nano-optical tweezers capable of trapping and moving an individual nano-object in 3 dimensions using only the force of light

04-03-2014

As science and technology go nano, scientists search for new tools to manipulate, observe and modify the "building blocks" of matter at the nanometer scale. With this in mind, the recent publication in Nature Nanotechnology in which ICFO researchers demonstrate for the first time the ability to ...
