Searching for answers on the sea floor

How abiotic organic molecules are formed

14-Jun-2017

The sea floor may look barren, but Qi Fu, an experimental geochemist at the University of Houston, says there are places where it is teeming with life. Hydrothermal vents, fissures on the sea bottom which release fluids heated by volcanic rocks, are particularly rich, but science can't yet ...

New, more efficient catalyst for water splitting

Discovery could remove hurdle to producing hydrogen from water

18-May-2017

University of Houston physicists have discovered a catalyst that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen, composed of easily available, low-cost materials and operating far more efficiently than previous catalysts. That would solve one of the primary hurdles remaining in using water to produce ...

Physicists discover flaws in superconductor theory

12-Apr-2016

University of Houston physicists report finding major theoretical flaws in the generally accepted understanding of how a superconductor traps and holds a magnetic field. More than 50 years ago, C.P. Bean, a scientist at General Electric, developed a theoretical explanation known as the "Bean ...

Researchers create fatigue-free, stretchable conductor

23-Sep-2015

Researchers have discovered a new stretchable, transparent conductor that can be folded or stretched and released, resulting in a large curvature or a significant strain, at least 10,000 times without showing signs of fatigue. This is a crucial step in creating a new generation of foldable ...
