Surprising discovery could change the way industry uses nickel

08-Aug-2019

Nickel is one of the most abundant elements on earth. It is hard, yet malleable, magnetic at room temperature, and a relatively good conductor of electricity and heat. Most notably, nickel is highly corrosion resistant, which provides for a variety of uses by industry. However, a surprising ...

Nuclear 'magic numbers' collapse beyond the doubly magic nickel 78

06-May-2019

Scientists from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Research and collaborators have used the center's heavy ion accelerator, the RI Beam Factory, to demonstrate that nickel 78, a neutron-rich "doubly magic" isotope of nickel with 28 protons and 50 neutrons, still maintains a spherical ...

Intelligent material improves aerodynamics in cars and aircraft

Start-up designs active components and systems based on shape memory alloys

22-Mar-2019

In order to save energy, aerodynamics is important for cars and aircraft. However, technologies controlling saving of energy are only designed for one speed range. Researchers at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern have developed a more flexible method: Thanks to a so-called shape memory wire, ...

How to convert climate-changing carbon dioxide into plastics and other products

Scientists develop green chemistry based on a natural process

23-Nov-2018

Rutgers scientists have developed catalysts that can convert carbon dioxide - the main cause of global warming - into plastics, fabrics, resins and other products. The electrocatalysts are the first materials, aside from enzymes, that can turn carbon dioxide and water into carbon building blocks ...
