Postcards from the photosynthetic edge (7/23/2014)

Postcards from the photosynthetic edgeUsing the world's most powerful x-ray laser, an international collaboration led by Berkeley Lab researchers took femtosecond 'snapshots' of water oxidation in photosystem II, the only known biological system able to harness sunlight for splitting the water molecule. The results should help advance the development of artificial photosynthesis for clean, green and renewable energy. ...> Full Article


Chemists develop novel catalyst with 2 functions (7/23/2014)

Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have made a decisive step towards more cost-efficient regenerative fuel cells and rechargeable metal-air batteries. They developed a new type of catalyst on the basis of carbon, which can facilitate two opposite reactions: electrolysis of water and combustion of hydrogen with oxygen. A catalyst of this kind might make the storage of wind and solar energy and the manufacture of cost-efficient batteries, for example for electric cars, possible. ...> Full Article


Researchers figure out how to make more efficient fuel cells (7/22/2014)

Researchers figure out how to make more efficient fuel cellsSolar panels need sun. Wind turbines need wind. Society needs ways to store and dispense alternative energy. Fuel cells could do this. But their chemical reactions are not fully understood. Researchers studied a high-efficiency solid-oxide fuel cell. They took atomic-scale 'snapshots' of the conversion process using a synchrotron. Learning why the cell worked well (its atomic defects explain its electrical efficiency) will lead to even better fuel cells -- and make alternative energy systems more practical. ...> Full Article


Researchers: Consider the 'anticrystal' (7/21/2014)

Researchers: Consider the 'anticrystal'Physicists at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago have evidence that a new concept should undergird our understanding of most materials: the anticrystal, a theoretical solid that is completely disordered. ...> Full Article


Smart paint signals when equipment is too hot to handle (7/21/2014)

NJIT researchers have developed a paint for use in coatings and packaging that changes color when exposed to high temperatures, delivering a visual warning to people handling material or equipment with the potential to malfunction, explode, or cause burns when overheated. ...> Full Article


Using sand to improve battery performance (7/20/2014)

Using sand to improve battery performanceResearchers at the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering have created a lithium ion battery that outperforms the current industry standard by three times. The key material: sand. Yes, sand. ...> Full Article


Silicon sponge improves lithium-ion battery performance (7/20/2014)

A sponge-like silicon material could help lithium-ion batteries run longer on a single charge by giving the batteries' electrodes the space they need to expand without breaking. ...> Full Article


New type of soot particle discovered from wildfire emissions (7/19/2014)

New type of soot particle discovered from wildfire emissionsIn a paper published in Nature Scientific Reports, a team of scientists led by Rajan Chakrabarty from Nevada's Desert Research Institute report the observation of a previously unrecognized form of soot particle, identified as 'superaggregates,' from wildfire emissions. These particles were detected in smoke plumes from wildfires in Northern California, New Mexico, Mexico City, and India. These particles contribute up to 90-percent more warming than spherical sub-micrometer soot particles, which current climate models use. ...> Full Article


Zero tolerance for xenon (7/18/2014)

NREL and General Motors announce R&D partnership to reduce cost of automotive fuel cells (7/16/2014)

The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and General Motors are partnering on a multiyear, multimillion dollar joint effort to accelerate the reduction of automotive fuel cell stack costs through fuel cell material and manufacturing research and development.Most major automakers, including GM, have made significant progress in the development of fuel cell electric vehicles, but achieving commercial deployment with global impact will require further cost reductions. ...> Full Article


Interlayer distance in graphite oxide gradually changes when water is added (7/15/2014)

Physicists from Umeå University and Humboldt University in Berlin have solved a mystery that has puzzled scientists for half a century. They show with the help of powerful microscopes that the distance between graphite oxide layers gradually increases when water molecules are added. That is because the surface of graphite oxide is not flat, but varies in thickness with 'hills' and 'valleys' of nanosize. The new findings are published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...> Full Article


Negar Sani solved the mystery of the printed diode (7/14/2014)

For 13 years the mystery has remained unsolved, but now Negar Sani, Ph.D. student at Linköping University's Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Campus Norrköping, has succeeded in explaining how a printed diode can function in the GHz band. The diode forms the missing link between mobile phones and printed labels. ...> Full Article
