New tracers can identify coal ash contamination in water (1/4/2015)

Laboratory and field tests confirm that new boron and strontium tracers, developed by researchers at Duke, the Univ. of Arkansas-Little Rock, and the Univ. of Kentucky, can detect the distinctive isotopic and geochemical fingerprints of coal ash contamination in water. The tracers will allow the US Environmental Protection Agency and other regulators to distinguish coal ash contamination from other, similar contamination coming from different sources in a watershed, and trace the coal ash to its source. ...> Full Article


The simplest element: Turning hydrogen into 'graphene' (1/4/2015)

The simplest element: Turning hydrogen into 'graphene'New work from Carnegie's Ivan Naumov and Russell Hemley delves into the chemistry underlying some surprising recent observations about hydrogen, and reveals remarkable parallels between hydrogen and graphene under extreme pressures. ...> Full Article


Squid supplies blueprint for printable thermoplastics (1/3/2015)

Squid supplies blueprint for printable thermoplasticsSquid, what is it good for? You can eat it and you can make ink or dye from it, and now a Penn State team of researchers is using it to make a thermoplastic that can be used in 3-D printing. ...> Full Article


Live images from inside materials (1/3/2015)

Live images from inside materialsX-rays are a tried and tested way to investigate components and materials. Researchers are now developing an X-ray detector capable of delivering particularly high-quality 3-D images in real time. This will make it possible to precisely reconstruct even the processes going on inside materials and, e.g., provide a reliable way of detecting minuscule faults. ...> Full Article


Theory details how 'hot' monomers affect thin-film formation (1/2/2015)

Theory details how 'hot' monomers affect thin-film formationResearchers have devised a mathematical model to predict how 'hot' monomers on cold substrates affect the growth of thin films being developed for next-generation electronics. ...> Full Article

Molecules for the masses (12/31/2014)

In collaboration with the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois, Theo Gray's company, Touchpress, has created an app for the Apple operating system that brings molecules to life in a handheld device. ...> Full Article


New form of ice could help explore exciting avenues for energy production and storage (12/30/2014)

New form of ice could help explore exciting avenues for energy production and storageThe discovery of a new form of ice could lead to an improved understanding of our planet's geology, potentially helping to unlock new solutions in the production, transportation and storage of energy. Ice XVI, the least dense of all known forms of ice, has a highly symmetric cage-like structure that can trap gaseous molecules to form compounds known as clathrates or gas hydrates. ...> Full Article

Penn researchers show commonalities in how different glassy materials fail (12/28/2014)

Penn researchers show commonalities in how different glassy materials failResearchers at the University of Pennsylvania have now shown an important commonality that seems to extend through the range of glassy materials. They have demonstrated that the scaling between a glassy material's stiffness and strength remains unchanged, implying a constant critical strain that these materials can withstand before catastrophic failure, despite the extreme variation found among this class of material's physical properties. ...> Full Article


New technique offers spray-on solar power (12/27/2014)

It may look more like Junk Yard Wars than high-tech, but a University of Toronto researcher's new designis the first step towards spray-on solar cells -- bringing efficient, low-cost manufacturing of solar cells closer. ...> Full Article


Light propagation in solar cells made visible (12/26/2014)

Light propagation in solar cells made visibleHow can light which has been captured in a solar cell be examined in experiments? Jülich scientists have succeeded in looking directly at light propagation within a solar cell by using a trick. The photovoltaics researchers are working on periodic nanostructures that efficiently capture a portion of sunlight which is normally only poorly absorbed. ...> Full Article


How many atoms does it take to predict the thermal expansion of liquid metals? (12/25/2014)

How many atoms does it take to predict the thermal expansion of liquid metals?Predicting the macroscopic properties of materials is an interesting puzzle in the field of materials physics and chemistry. The thermal expansion of several types of metastable liquid metals can be predicted by examining just one thousand atoms of each metal, report scientists in the northwestern Chinese city of Xi'an in a new study. This breakthrough illustrates the connection between microscopic information and the macroscopic property of materials. ...> Full Article
