Its done by adding layer of nanoparticles to LED designs. They report their innovation in the journal Light Science & Applications. Making light-emitting […]

Texas A&M University researchers have designed a smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities affected by power outages. The researchers said their single device works by improving energy delivery between home solar-power systems and the electrical grid. Dr. Le Xie, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering said, “Our innovation […]

Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers have competed a study that identified which pairs of atoms in a catalyst nanoparticle are most active in a reaction that breaks down a harmful exhaust gas in catalytic converters. The most active particles contained the biggest proportion of one particular atomic configuration – one where […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) engineers have synthesized a tiny structure with high surface area and discovered how its unique architecture drives ions across interfaces to transport energy or information. Their ‘nanobrush’ contains bristles made of alternating crystal sheets with vertically aligned interfaces and plentiful pores. ORNL’s Ho Nyung Lee, who led the study said, […]

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) theoretical study suggests that small changes in roadway paving practices could reduce efficiency loss, potentially eliminating a half-percent of the total greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, at little to no cost.  (One suspects that would also mean a half percent reduction in fuel use.) Every time you […]
