Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have designed and additively manufactured a first-of-its-kind aluminum device that enhances the capture of carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuel plants and other industrial processes. Solutions for reducing global emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases such as CO2 address the continued use of low-cost, domestic fossil fuel resources while mitigating […]

University of British Columbia researchers can show how a ‘Cold Tube’ can offer relief from the summer heat without relying on air conditioning. A Cold Tube uses half the energy of conventional air conditioners and can be used outdoors or indoors. Many people beat the summer heat by cranking the air conditioning. However, air conditioners […]

An international team of physicists including Jennifer Cano, PhD, of Stony Brook University, has created a new material layered by two structures, forming a superlattice, that at a high temperature is a super-efficient insulator conducting current without dissipation and lost energy. The finding, detailed in a paper published in Nature Physics, could be the basis […]

Virginia Tech chemists are working on a new study that solves a key, fundamental barrier in the electrochemical water splitting process. Virginia Tech’s Lin Lab can demonstrate a new technique to reassemble, revivify, and reuse a catalyst that allows for energy-efficient water splitting. One proposed paradigm for shifting away from fossil fuels is the hydrogen […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a new design for light-emitting diodes that achieves a dramatic increase in brightness as well as the ability to create laser light. These characteristics could make it valuable in a range of applications. The device shows an increase in brightness of 100 to 1,000 times […]
