Scheme to design seamless integrated circuits etched on graphene

24-Oct-2013

Researchers in electrical and computer engineering at UC Santa Barbara have introduced and modeled an integrated circuit design scheme in which transistors and interconnects are monolithically patterned seamlessly on a sheet of graphene, a 2-dimensional plane of carbon atoms. The demonstration ...

Quantum information transfer via nanomechanical coupling

25-Sep-2013

Fiber optics has made communication faster than ever, but the next step involves a quantum leap –– literally. In order to improve the security of the transfer of information, scientists are working on how to translate electrical quantum states to optical quantum states in a way that would enable ...

UC Santa Barbara scientist studies methane levels in cross-continent drive

17-May-2013

After taking a rented camper outfitted with special equipment to measure methane on a cross-continent drive, a UC Santa Barbara scientist has found that methane emissions across large parts of the U.S. are higher than currently known, confirming what other more local studies have found. Their ...

Calculations reveal fine line for hydrogen release from storage materials

UC Santa Barbara scientists calculate microscopic reaction mechanisms in promising energy storage material aluminum hydride – and challenge outdated reaction curve interpretations

19-Jul-2012

Hydrogen, the simplest and most abundant element on Earth, is a promising energy carrier for emerging clean energy technology. Hydrogen is the energy carrier that powers fuel cells in electric cars, and can be used to store energy generated by renewable sources at times of low demand. A major ...

Turbulence around heat transport

07-Dec-2009

Not only in the Earth's mantle, in the atmosphere and in the outer layers of the Sun, but also in a chemical reactor, the exchange of heat may not be as effective as originally thought. There, because warm fluid rises and hence induces movement, the turbulent convection can be 100 billion times ...

The invasive green mussel may inspire new forms of wet adhesion

31-Aug-2009

The green mussel is known for being a notoriously invasive fouling species, but scientists have just discovered that it also has a very powerful form of adhesion in its foot, according to a recent article in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. The stickiness of the mussel's foot could possibly ...

Chemists explain the switchboards in our cells

05-Aug-2009

Our cells are controlled by billions of molecular "switches" and chemists at UC Santa Barbara have developed a theory that explains how these molecules work. Their findings may significantly help efforts to build biologically based sensors for the detection of chemicals ranging from drugs to ...

Smart' Bio-nanotubes Developed; May Help in Drug Delivery

04-Aug-2005

Materials scientists working with biologists at the University of California, Santa Barbara have developed "smart" bio-nanotubes - with open or closed ends - that could be developed for drug or gene delivery applications. The nanotubes are "smart" because in the future they could be designed to ...
