Texas A&M University researchers have used advanced data science methods and ideas from the social sciences to compare the performance of different wind turbine designs. With a global impetus toward utilizing more renewable energy sources, wind presents a promising, and increasingly tapped resource. Despite the many technological advancements made in upgrading wind-powered systems, a systematic […]

A Pohang University research team proposes a new direction for designing highly efficient spin Seebeck-based thermoelectric devices. The POSTECH joint research team – led by Professor Hyungyu Jin and Ph.D. candidate Min Young Kim of the Department of Mechanical Engineering with Professor Si-Young Choi of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering – has succeeded […]

Purdue University’s Yulia Puskhar, a biophysicist and professor of physics in Purdue’s College of Science, may have a way to harness photosynthetic energy by mimicking plants. Plants can make energy directly from the sun. That process of turning sunlight directly into usable energy – called photosynthesis – may soon be a feat humans are able […]

Research led by the University of Liverpool, in partnership with Johnson Matthey PLC and Loughborough University has made significant progress in the development of stable and practical electrolytes for lithium-oxygen batteries. The lithium-oxygen (Li-O2) battery (or lithium-air battery), consisting of Li-metal and a porous conductive framework as its electrode’s, releases energy from the reaction of […]

University of Edinburgh scientists have devised a novel way of tackling the mounting issue of plastic pollution – by using bacteria to transform plastic waste into vanilla flavoring. Vanillin is the primary component of extracted vanilla beans and is responsible for the characteristic taste and smell of vanilla. The transformation could boost the circular economy, […]
