Atmospheric chemistry hinges on better physics model (10/30/2014)

Understanding photoabsorption of nitrous oxide -- a process involving the transfer of the energy of a photon to the molecule -- matters because a small fraction of nitrous oxide reacts with oxygen atoms in the stratosphere to produce among others nitric oxide. The latter participates in the catalytic destruction of ozone. Now, new theoretical work by Mohammad Noh Daud unveils the actual dynamic of the photoabsorption of nitrous oxide molecules and has been published in EPJ D. ...> Full Article


Facetless crystals that mimic starfish shells could advance 3-D-printing pills (10/30/2014)

In a design that mimics a hard-to-duplicate texture of starfish shells, University of Michigan engineers have made rounded crystals that have no facets. ...> Full Article


Through the combining glass (10/29/2014)

Trying on clothes when a shop is closed could become a reality thanks to new research that uses semi-transparent mirrors in interactive systems and which will be unveiled at an international conference tomorrow, Oct. 7th. ...> Full Article


Major breakthrough could help detoxify pollutants (10/29/2014)

Scientists at The University of Manchester hope a major breakthrough could lead to more effective methods for detoxifying dangerous pollutants like PCBs and dioxins. The result is a culmination of 15 years of research and has been published in Nature. It details how certain organisms manage to lower the toxicity of pollutants. ...> Full Article


Stressed out: Research sheds new light on why rechargeable batteries fail (10/28/2014)

Stressed out: Research sheds new light on why rechargeable batteries failLithium ions traveling through a zinc antimonide anode cause local stress and phase transitions, a process dubbed atomic shuffling. These changes may help explain why most anodes made of layered materials eventually fail. ...> Full Article


Breakthrough allows researchers to watch molecules 'wiggle' (10/28/2014)

A new crystallographic technique is set to transform scientists' ability to observe how molecules work. ...> Full Article


Dispelling a misconception about Mg-ion batteries (10/28/2014)

Dispelling a misconception about Mg-ion batteriesBerkeley Lab researchers, working under the JCESR Energy Hub, used supercomputer simulations to dispel a popular misconception about magnesium-ion batteries that should help advance the development of multivalent ion battery technology. ...> Full Article


Batteries included: A solar cell that stores its own power (10/27/2014)

Batteries included: A solar cell that stores its own powerIs it a solar cell? Or a rechargeable battery? Actually, the patent-pending device invented at the Ohio State University is both: the world's first solar battery. In the Oct. 3, 2014, issue of the journal Nature Communications, the researchers report that they've succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one hybrid device. ...> Full Article


Continuous fabrication system for highly aligned polymer films provides method for tuning mechanical and thermal properties in bulk polymers (10/27/2014)

Continuous fabrication system for highly aligned polymer films provides method for tuning mechanical and thermal properties in bulk polymersNovel and scalable continuous fabrication process combining Couette flow extrusion and macroscopic plastic deformation results in ability to increase mechanical, thermal, and crystalline properties in bulk polymer films. ...> Full Article


Snapshots of chemical reactions: Characterizing an important reactive intermediate (10/26/2014)

Snapshots of chemical reactions: Characterizing an important reactive intermediateAn international group of researchers led by Dr. Warren E. Piers and Dr. Heikki M. Tuononen has been able to isolate and characterize an important chemical intermediate whose existence has, so far, only been inferred from indirect experimental evidence. ...> Full Article


$18 million NSF investment aims to take flat materials to new heights (10/25/2014)

$18 million NSF investment aims to take flat materials to new heightsGraphene, a form of carbon in which a single layer of atoms forms a two-dimensional, honeycomb crystal lattice, conducts electricity and heat efficiently and interacts with light in unusual ways. These properties have led to worldwide efforts in exploring its use in electronics, photonics and many other applications. ...> Full Article


Chinese scientists unveil liquid phase 3-D printing method using low melting metal alloy ink (10/24/2014)

Chinese scientists unveil liquid phase 3-D printing method using low melting metal alloy inkConventional 3-D metal printing is generally restricted to metals that have a high melting point, and the process is rather time consuming. Scientists in the Chinese capital now present an alternative technique involving liquid-phase 3-D printing to manufacture conductive metal objects rapidly. Through introducing a printing ink consisting of a four-element metal alloy, Bi35In48.6Sn16Zn0.4, with a melting point slightly above room temperature, a series of three-dimensional structures are fabricated conveniently in a cooling liquid. ...> Full Article


Blades of grass inspire advance in organic solar cells (10/23/2014)

Blades of grass inspire advance in organic solar cellsBriseno's research group is one of very few in the world to design and grow organic single-crystal p-n junctions. He says, 'This work is a major advancement in the field of organic solar cells because we have developed what the field considers the 'Holy Grail' architecture for harvesting light and converting it to electricity.' The breakthrough in morphology control should have widespread use in solar cells, batteries and vertical transistors, he adds. ...> Full Article


Taking thin films to the extreme (10/23/2014)

Taking thin films to the extremeApplying a well-known optical phenomenon called thin-film interference, a group of researchers at Harvard University has demonstrated the ability to 'paint' ultra-thin coatings onto a rough surface -- work that holds promise for making future, flexible electronic devices, creating advanced solar cells and detailing the sides of next-gen rocket ships and spacecraft with extremely lightweight decorative logos -- work described in work the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing. ...> Full Article


New material steals oxygen from the air (10/22/2014)

New material steals oxygen from the airResearchers from the University of Southern Denmark have synthesized crystalline materials that can bind and store oxygen in high concentrations. Just one spoon of the substance is enough to absorb all the oxygen in a room. The stored oxygen can be released again when and where it is needed. ...> Full Article
