Researchers at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have found the first direct evidence that a mysterious phase of matter known as the “pseudogap” competes with high-temperature superconductivity. The pseudogap takes electrons from superconducting materials that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100% efficiency. The […]

Truck fuel consumption could be reduced by billions of gallons a year through the use of drag-reducing devices on semi tractor trailer trucks. According to new study presented at the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) meeting in San Francisco the U.S. national truck fleet of more than 2 million tractor-trailer trucks that […]

Researchers from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the Universidad Miguel Hernández of Elche have found the way to increase biomass production by using sewage sludge as energy crop fertilizers. The idea’s press release is getting international attention. Its not a new idea exactly. The City of Milwaukee Wisconsin has been the source of “Milorganite“, […]

Researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China (HKST) have devised an ultra-thin liquid crystal displays (LCDs) screen that operates without a power source. The compact, energy-efficient display technology of visual information may one day have applications in products such as e-book readers, flexible displays or as a security measure on credit […]

A sponge-like plastic that sops up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide was presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society by chemists from the University of Liverpool. The material, a relative of the plastics used in food containers could be integrated into power plant smokestacks in the future. The report on the material is […]
