New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

06-Oct-2017

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF researcher Yang Yang has come up with a new hybrid nanomaterial that harnesses solar energy and uses it to generate hydrogen from seawater ...

Record for fastest light pulse set

09-Aug-2017

A research team at the University of Central Florida has demonstrated the fastest light pulse ever developed, a 53-attosecond X-ray flash. The group led by Professor Zenghu Chang beat its own record set in 2012: a 67-attosecond extreme ultraviolet light pulse that was the fastest at the time. At ...

New screen coating makes reading in sunlight a lot easier

27-Jun-2017

Screens on even the newest phones and tablets can be hard to read outside in bright sunlight. Inspired by the nanostructures found on moth eyes, researchers have developed a new antireflection film that could keep people from having to run to the shade to look at their mobile devices. The ...

Researcher uses vibrations to identify materials' composition

Hybrid photonic-nanomechanical force microscopy (HPFM) brings greater spatial resolution

12-Aug-2015

A researcher at the University of Central Florida has developed a new method for identifying materials' unique chemical "fingerprints" and mapping their chemical properties at a much higher spatial resolution than ever before. It's a discovery that could have promising implications for fields as ...

A breakthrough in creating invisibility cloaks

Advance in large area 3D visible negative index metamaterials

02-Apr-2014

Controlling and bending light around an object so it appears invisible to the naked eye is the theory behind fictional invisibility cloaks. It may seem easy in Hollywood movies, but is hard to create in real life because no material in nature has the properties necessary to bend light in such a ...
