Led by the inventor of the lithium-ion battery, a team of researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin has identified a new, safe and sustainable cathode material for low-cost sodium-ion batteries. During the past five years, sodium-ion batteries have emerged as a promising new type of rechargeable battery […]






A collaboration of researchers at the University of Gothenburg and the University of Iceland has been studying a new type of nuclear fusion process. The new process idea produces almost no neutrons but instead fast, heavy electrons (muons), since it is based on nuclear reactions in ultra-dense heavy hydrogen (deuterium). The Gothenburg press release offers […]






A University of Wisconsin at Madison research team reports a hydrogen making catalyst containing phosphorus and sulfur – both common elements – and cobalt, a metal that is 1,000 times cheaper than platinum. Like gasoline, natural gas and other petrochemicals, hydrogen could also be used to store energy. Hydrogen could be the ideal fuel: Whether […]






Michigan State University (MSU) researchers have built a synthetic protein that acts as a molecular Swiss Army knife that streamlines the molecular machinery of cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria, what we usually think of as blue-green algae, is a base line research microorganism for making biofuels and other green chemical products. The Michigan State team has done in […]






Researchers at Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Center of Finland have succeeded in developing a method which helps to improve the relative uncertainty in measuring the luminous efficacy of LEDs. The improvement from the approximate five percent of today to one percent in the future may save billions in lighting costs in the future. […]
