    Pop science: Stanford engineers stop soap bubbles from swirling

    The spinning rainbow surface of a soap bubble is more than mesmerizing – it’s a lesson in fluid mechanics. Better understanding of these hypnotic flows could bring improvements in many areas, from longer lasting beer foam to life-saving lung treatments. more

    America’s Nuclear Waste – No Solution in Sight

    America’s nuclear waste is accumulating at over seventy sites in 39 states – but there is no clear way forward for its final disposal.An international cast of experts explains how the U.S. nuclear waste program arrived at gridlock – and suggest some steps that may be taken to move the progr ... more

    Tiny light detectors work like gecko ears

    Geckos and many other animals have heads that are too small to triangulate the location of noises the way we do, with widely spaced ears. Instead, they have a tiny tunnel through their heads that measures the way incoming sound waves bounce around to figure out which direction they came fro ... more

    Efficient electrochemical cells for CO2 conversion

    Scientists at Stanford University have developed electrochemical cells that convert carbon monoxide (CO) derived from CO2 into commercially viable compounds more effectively and efficiently than existing technologies. Their research provides a new strategy for capturing CO2 and converting i ... more

    A new way of generating ultra-short bursts of light

    Although critical for varied applications, such as cutting and welding, surgery and transmitting bits through optical fiber, lasers have some limitations - namely, they only produce light in limited wavelength ranges. Now, researchers from the Ginzton Lab at Stanford University have modifie ... more
