Scientists a step closer to developing renewable propane


Researchers at The University of Manchester have made a significant breakthrough in the development of synthetic pathways that will enable renewable biosynthesis of the gas propane. This research is part of a programme of work aimed at developing the next generation of biofuels.This study ...


BASF and eight partners cooperate to optimize production processes for renewable-based products


A consortium of companies in the European process industry from the areas of biotechnology, renewable resources, chemistry, process engineering, equipment supply as well as research organizations recently launched project PRODIAS (PROcessing Diluted Aqueous Systems). The project focuses on ...


Speed at its limits

Physicists develop ultra-fast semiconductor nano-lasers


One thousand billion operations per second – this peak value is achieved by semiconductor nano-lasers developed by physicists at the University of Jena together with their colleagues from Imperial College London. As the researcher report in the current issue of the journal of „Nature Physics“, ...


Aging wind farms are a bad investment?


The UK has a target of generating 15 per cent of the nation's energy from renewable resources such as wind farms by 2020. There are currently 4,246 individual wind turbines in the UK across 531 wind farms, generating 7.5 per cent of the nation's electricity. There has been some debate about ...

3D printing used as a tool to explain theoretical physics


Students may soon be able to reach out and touch some of the theoretical concepts they are taught in their physics classes thanks to a novel idea devised by a group of researchers from Imperial College London. In new study published in the journal EPL, the researchers have successfully ...


A better understanding of ‘hole hopping’ in solar cells


A team of scientists from the UK, Spain and Switzerland say a method they have developed for probing electron transfer reactions could help them design more efficient solar cells. The research team, led by Piers Barnes of Imperial College London, has pioneered a technique that measures the ...

Low-priced plastic photovoltaics


Photovoltaic devices, which tap the power of the sun and convert it to electricity, offer a green -- and potentially unlimited -- alternative to fossil fuel use. So why haven't solar technologies been more widely adopted? Quite simply, "they're too expensive," says Ji-Seon Kim, a senior lecturer ...


Scientists untangle nanotubes


Researchers have demonstrated how to produce electronic inks for the development of new applications using the 'wonder material', carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are lightweight, strong and conduct electricity, which make them ideal components in new electronics devices, such as tablet ...


Morphology Matters: The Effect of Processing on Solar Cells


The dramatic influence of polymer processing conditions on the performance of polymer solar cells is highlighted by a new paper in the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics. The study resolves some of the discrepancies found between experimental results from previously published studies and ...


Versatile solvent-free method for functionalising carbon nanotubes


Carbon nanotubes can be functionalised on a large scale more cleanly and efficiently than before, improving their commercial viability for engineering, catalysis and bionanotechnology. Milo Shaffer and colleagues have exploited existing surface oxide defects present in most carbon nanotubes to ...
