New solar tech can take the heat and pressure

New material, manufacturing process use sun's heat for cheaper renewable electricity

22-Oct-2018

Solar power accounts for less than 2 percent of U.S. electricity but could make up more than that if the cost of electricity generation and energy storage for use on cloudy days and at nighttime were cheaper. A Purdue University-led team developed a new material and manufacturing process that ...

Taming defects in nanoporous materials to put them to a good use

Fundamental aspects of defective materials that can be employed to capture CO2

10-Aug-2018

The word "defect" universally evokes some negative, undesirable feature, but researchers at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University have a different opinion: in the realm of nanoporous materials, defects can be put to a good use, if one knows how to tame them. Metal ...

Speeding up material discovery

Algorithm take months, not years, to find material for improved energy conversion

27-Apr-2018

In even the most fuel-efficient cars, about 60 percent of the total energy of gasoline is lost through heat in the exhaust pipe and radiator. To combat this, researchers are developing new thermoelectic materials that can convert heat into electricity. These semiconducting materials could ...

A fast reactor system to shorten the lifetime of long-lived fission products

15-Nov-2017

A team of scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) working in collaboration with Tohoku University, Tokyo City University and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency has proposed a novel approach to tackle the problem of radioactive waste disposal. The new method could dramatically reduce ...

New fabric coating could thwart chemical weapons, save lives

08-Jun-2017

Chemical weapons are nightmarish. In a millisecond, they can kill hundreds, if not thousands. But, in a study, scientists report that they have developed a way to adhere a lightweight coating onto fabrics that is capable of neutralizing a subclass of these toxins -- those that are delivered ...

New high-energy compounds predicted

14-Feb-2017

Using theoretical methods, an international group of scientists led by Artem R. Oganov, Professor of Skoltech, Stony Brook University and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology predicted unusual from the point of view of classical chemistry nitrides of hafnium and chromium with the chemical ...

Gum metals pave the way for new applications

Scientists discover peculiarities in crystal structure of titanium alloy

02-Feb-2017

Metals which can be bent as gum pave the way for new industrial applications for example in the aerospace industry. These so-called gum metals exist but the mechanism behind this behaviour was still unsettled and thus difficult to be used for applications. Scientists from the Max-Planck-Institut ...

Scientists have created a ceramic, resistant to extreme temperatures

22-Aug-2016

Physicists and technicians of the TSU and Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science SB RAS are developing experimental samples of ceramics that are resistant to extreme temperatures. The scientists aim to invent a material that can withstand up to 3,000 degrees Celsius. The new product ...

Catalyst destroys common toxic nerve agents quickly

Material could be used one day to destroy stockpiles of deadly chemical weapons

18-Mar-2015

Northwestern University scientists have developed a robust new material, inspired by biological catalysts, that is extraordinarily effective at destroying toxic nerve agents that are a threat around the globe. First used 100 years ago during World War I, deadly chemical weapons continue to be a ...

Nearly everyone uses piezoelectrics

Be nice to know how they work

04-Feb-2014

Piezoelectrics—materials that can change mechanical stress to electricity and back again—are everywhere in modern life. Computer hard drives. Loud speakers. Medical ultrasound. Sonar. Though piezoelectrics are a widely used technology, there are major gaps in our understanding of how they work. ...
