Chemistry discovery could remove micropollutants from environment

Researchers made an unexpected breakthrough discovery

20-Jul-2021

Using a pioneering imaging technique, Cornell University researchers obtained a high-resolution snapshot of how ligands, molecules that bind to other molecules or metals, interact with the surface of nanoparticles. In doing so, they made an unexpected breakthrough discovery. They determined that ...

The beginning of a new era in resolution

World record: Team of researchers has succeeded in achieving the world's highest electron microscope resolution to date

06-Jul-2021

Scientists at Cornell University (USA) have succeeded in building an electron microscope pixel array detector (EMPAD) with sophisticated 3D reconstruction algorithms that make it possible to multiply the resolution of a state-of-the-art electron microscope. The Leibniz-Institut für ...

New material for splitting water

20-Jun-2018

Solar energy is clean and abundant. But when the sun isn't shining, you must store the energy in batteries or through a process called photocatalysis -- in which solar energy is used to make fuels. In photocatalytic water splitting, sunlight separates water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen ...

Engineering team images tiny quasicrystals as they form

21-Aug-2017

When Israeli scientist Daniel Shechtman first saw a quasicrystal through his microscope in 1982, he reportedly thought to himself, "Eyn chaya kazo" -- Hebrew for, "There can be no such creature." But there is, and the quasicrystal has become a subject of much research in the 35 years since ...

Energy-efficient accelerator was 50 years in the making

25-Jul-2017

With the introduction of CBETA, the Cornell-Brookhaven ERL Test Accelerator, Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists are following up on the concept of energy-recovering particle accelerators first introduced by physicist Maury Tigner at Cornell more than 50 years ...

A fresh role for nitric oxide

20-Jul-2017

Cornell University chemists have uncovered a fresh role for nitric oxide that could send biochemical textbooks back for revision. They have identified a critical step in the nitrification process, which is partly responsible for agricultural emissions of harmful nitrous oxide and its chemical ...

Bacteria-coated nanofiber electrodes clean pollutants in wastewater

30-Jun-2017

Cornell University materials scientists and bioelectrochemical engineers may have created an innovative, cost-competitive electrode material for cleaning pollutants in wastewater. The researchers created electro-spun carbon nanofiber electrodes and coated them with a conductive polymer, called ...

New fabric coating protects your clothes, and the environment

08-May-2017

When you spill pasta sauce on your favorite shirt but there is no trace of it after being washed, you can thank oleophobicity, a resistance to oil commonly applied to textiles. That resistance, however, comes at a price. The coating that makes textiles oil resistant is fluorine-based and breaks ...

'Weirdest martensite': Century-old smectic riddle finally solved

18-Apr-2016

Using the latest computer game technology, a Cornell-led team of physicists has come up with a "suitably beautiful" explanation to a puzzle that has baffled researchers in the materials and theoretical physics communities for a century. Physics professor James Sethna has co-authored a paper on ...

Quantum dot solids: This generation's silicon wafer?

26-Feb-2016

Just as the single-crystal silicon wafer forever changed the nature of communication 60 years ago, a group of Cornell researchers is hoping its work with quantum dot solids - crystals made out of crystals - can help usher in a new era in electronics. The team, led by Tobias Hanrath, associate ...
