Labs characterize carbon for batteries (8/1/2014)

Rice University and Lawrence Livermore researchers find a universal descriptor of charge-transfer binding properties for carbon-based lithium-ion batteries. ...> Full Article


Deep within spinach leaves, vibrations enhance efficiency of photosynthesis (7/31/2014)

Biophysics researchers at the University of Michigan have used short pulses of light to peer into the mechanics of photosynthesis and illuminate the role that molecule vibrations play in the energy conversion process that powers life on our planet. ...> Full Article


Getting a charge out of water droplets (7/30/2014)

Last year, MIT researchers discovered that when water droplets spontaneously jump away from superhydrophobic surfaces during condensation, they can gain electric charge in the process. Now, the same team has demonstrated that this process can generate small amounts of electricity that might be used to power electronic devices. ...> Full Article


Fill 'er up: Research develops prototype meter test for hydrogen refueling stations (7/29/2014)

Fill 'er up: Research develops prototype meter test for hydrogen refueling stationsTo support the fair sale of gaseous hydrogen as a vehicle fuel, National Institute of Standards and Technology researchers have developed a prototype field test standard to test the accuracy of hydrogen fuel dispensers. Once the standard is field tested, it will serve as a model for constructing similar devices for state weights and measures inspectors to use. ...> Full Article


Enhanced instrument enables high-speed chemical imaging of tissues (7/29/2014)

Enhanced instrument enables high-speed chemical imaging of tissuesA NIST research team has demonstrated a dramatically improved technique for analyzing biological cells and tissues based on characteristic molecular vibrations. The new technique is an advanced form of Raman spectroscopy that is fast and accurate enough to create high-resolution images of biological specimens, with detailed spatial information on specific biomolecules, at speeds fast enough to observe changes in living cells. ...> Full Article


Directly visualizing hydrogen bonds (7/29/2014)

Directly visualizing hydrogen bondsUsing a newly developed, ultrafast femtosecond infrared light source, chemists at the University of Chicago have been able to directly visualize the coordinated vibrations between hydrogen-bonded molecules -- the first time this sort of chemical interaction, which is found in nature everywhere at the molecular level, has been directly visualized. They describe their experimental techniques and observations in The Journal of Chemical Physics, from AIP Publishing. ...> Full Article

Fundamental chemistry findings could help extend Moore's Law (7/28/2014)

Fundamental chemistry findings could help extend Moore's LawIn a bid to continue decreasing transistor size while increasing computation and energy efficiency, chip-maker Intel has partnered with researchers from the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to design an entirely new kind of resist. Results could be easily incorporated by companies that make resist, and find their way into manufacturing lines as early as 2017. ...> Full Article


Self-cooling solar cells boost power, last longer (7/28/2014)

Self-cooling solar cells boost power, last longerScientists may have overcome one of the major hurdles in developing high-efficiency, long-lasting solar cells -- keeping them cool, even in the blistering heat of the noonday Sun. By adding a specially patterned layer of silica glass to the surface of ordinary solar cells, a team of researchers led by Shanhui Fan, of Stanford University has found a way to let solar cells cool themselves by shepherding away unwanted thermal radiation. ...> Full Article


An anti-glare, anti-reflective display for mobile devices? (7/27/2014)

If you've ever tried to watch a video on a tablet on a sunny day, you know you have to tilt it at just the right angle to get rid of glare or invest in a special filter. But now scientists are reporting in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces that they've developed a novel glass surface that reduces both glare and reflection, which continue to plague even the best mobile displays today. ...> Full Article


Uncertainty gives scientists new confidence in search for novel materials (7/26/2014)

Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have found a way to estimate uncertainties in computer calculations that are widely used to speed the search for new materials for industry, electronics, energy, drug design and a host of other applications. The technique, reported in the July 11 issue of Science, should quickly be adopted in studies that produce some 30,000 scientific papers per year. ...> Full Article


Neutron crystallography solves long-standing biological mystery (7/25/2014)

Neutron crystallography solves long-standing biological mysteryAn international team of researchers led by the University of Leicester and the Institut Laue-Langevin have solved a long-standing mystery in biology by identifying the structure of a vital enzyme intermediate. The debate - which has raged within the scientific community for years - boils down to something as simple as a hydrogen atom: is it there, or not? ...> Full Article


A first direct glimpse of photosynthesis in action (7/25/2014)

An international team of researchers, including scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg, has just a reported a major step in understanding photosynthesis, the process by which the Earth first gained and now maintains the oxygen in its atmosphere and which is therefore crucial for all higher forms of life on earth. ...> Full Article


Ferromagnetism at 230 K found in a new diluted magnetic semiconductor by Chinese physicists (7/24/2014)

Diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS) have received much attention due to their potential application in spintronics. One of the challenges to possible application for DMS is approaching Tc near room temperature. Now scientists at the Institute of Physics in Beijing report in the Chinese Science Bulletin a new diluted ferromagnetic semiconductor. ...> Full Article


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
