Theorists at Caltech used quantum mechanics to predict what happens at atomic scales, while experimentalists at the Berkeley Lab used X-ray studies to analyze the steps in a chemical reaction returning CO2 to a fuel. The research was started when a carbon dioxide experiment didn’t match with what theorists predicted, so the researchers went back […]

Stanford University scientists have developed a way to wirelessly deliver electricity to moving objects. The technology could one day charge electric vehicles and personal devices like medical implants and cell phones. The press release makes the point if electric cars could recharge while driving down a highway, it would virtually eliminate concerns about their range […]

Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have made a surprising discovery that could fix lithium-sulfur battery capacity fading. But for the capacity fading, lithium-sulfur batteries have great potential as a low-cost, high-energy, energy storage medium for both vehicle and grid applications. Gao Liu the corresponding author of the paper research paper said, “There’s a lot of demand […]

University of Turku scientists in Finland have created a synthetic material based on the natural hackmanite mineral which produces broad spectrum white light in lamps. The hackmanite created by the Inorganic Materials Chemistry research group is a low-cost material emitting luminescence closer to sunlight than that of the currently used lanthanides. The hackmanite developed by […]

University of California – Santa Barbara (UCSB) scientist Michelle O’Malley has discovered enzyme complexes in herbivore digestive tracts that show promise for sustainable fuels and medicines. Lignocellulose is an abundant plant product that in its natural form isn’t suitable for making fuels and other products. It needs changed into sugars. O’Malley, an assistant professor of […]
