In the lab of Fabrizio Carbone at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and their international colleagues, these physicists have now demonstrated experimentally the ability to coherently manipulate the wave function of a free electron down to the attosecond timescale. Attoseconds are 10 to the 18th of a second. The team also developed a theory […]

A joint research team from Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and North Carolina State University has clarified the fundamental principles for achieving the synchronization of power generator groups in power networks. Synchronization is vital for the stable supply of alternating current electric power. Synchronization of generator groups means the phase angles (timing of the […]

University of Notre Dame researchers have developed a renewable energy approach for synthesizing ammonia. Ammonia is crucial for the world’s agricultural production because its an essential nitrogen component of fertilizers that support the world’s food and fuel production needs. The industrial Haber-Bosch process developed in the early 1900s for producing ammonia relies on non-renewable fossil […]

Sweden’s Linnaeus University’s doctoral candidate Yahya Jani can demonstrate decontamination of landfills and open dumpsites could prove profitable both financially and for the environment. Landfill cleanup profits are getting closer. Environmental pollution, health threats and scarcity of raw materials, water, food and energy are some of the greatest challenges our world is facing today. At […]

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science engineering researchers have developed a prototype of a high-performance flexible lithium-ion battery. The battery design demonstrates both good flexibility and high energy density at the same time. The very cleverly designed battery is shaped like the human spine and allows remarkable flexibility, high energy density, and stable […]
