Research could usher in next generation of batteries, fuel cells University of South Carolina and Clemson reseachers uncover clean interfaces
Scientists from South Carolina's leading public universities--the University of South Carolina and Clemson University--have made a discovery that could dramatically improve the efficiency of batteries...
Since ancient Greek times, philosophers and scientists have pondered the atom. For a couple thousand years, humans could only speculate on the structure and other properties of the smallest unit of ma...
Quantum physics -- hot and cold at the same time: Measurements at the Vienna University of Technology show that a cloud of quantum particles can have several temperatures at once; the experiment provides new insight into the behavior of large quantum syst
Temperature is a very useful physical quantity. It allows us to make a simple statistical statement about the energy of particles swirling around on complicated paths without having to know the specif...
The National Space Society announces that physicist Dr. Kip Thorne is the recipient of its 2015 Space Pioneer Award for "Mass Media." This award will be presented at the National Space Society's 2015...
Engineers now understand how complex carbon nanostructures form: Understanding how nanotube forests are created could lead to advancements in aerospace and biomedical applications
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are microscopic tubular structures that engineers "grow" through a process conducted in a high-temperature furnace. The forces that create the CNT structures known as "forests"...
Our world is full of patterns, from the twist of a DNA molecule to the spiral of the Milky Way. New research from Carnegie Mellon chemists has revealed that tiny, synthetic gold nanoparticles exhibit...
A glass fiber that brings light to a standstill: By coupling photons to atoms, light in a glass fiber can be slowed down to the speed of an express train; for a short while it can even be brought to a complete stop
Light is an extremely useful tool for quantum communication, but it has one major disadvantage: it usually travels at the speed of light and cannot be kept in place. A team of scientists at the Vienna...
A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge have unravelled one of the mysteries of electromagnetism, which could enable the design of antennas small enough to be integrated into an electro...
Thermochromic nano-coatings employed appropriately can help reduce energy usage and generate savings. The coatings either absorb heat or permit its reflection, depending on their temperature. Research...
Materials that self-assemble and self-destruct once their work is done are highly advantageous for a number of applications - as components in temporary data storage systems or for medical devices. Fo...
Iranian researchers succeeded in the production of a nanocatalyst that is proper to be used in fuel cells.
Iranian researchers from Kashan University used a simple, fast and effective method to produce fullerene nanostructures by applying ultrasound waves.
(with audio) Canadian researchers may have developed a new way to treat brain disorders.
Nanoparticles loaded with a cholesterol-lowering drug reduce inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques.
New sensor could be used to study the brain and heart.
