New Lithium Battery Is Five Times Better Than Current Ones
In a recent experiment, Argonne battery scientists Jun Lu, Larry Curtiss and Khalil Amine, along with American and Korean collaborators, were able to produce stable crystallized lithium superoxide (Li...
How Copper Makes Organic Light-Emitting Diodes More Efficient
Use of copper as a fluorescent material allows for the manufacture of inexpensive and environmentally compatible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Thermally activated delayed fuorescence (TADF) e...
Researchers’ Metallic Glue May Stick It To Soldering And Welding
“MesoGlue was founded by Huang and two of his PhD stu­dents: They had a dream of a better way of sticking things together.” Those “things” are every­thing from a computer’s cen­tral pro­cessing unit a...
Scientists Build Nanoscale Submarines Powered By Light
Though they’re not quite ready for boarding a lá “Fantastic Voyage,” nanoscale submarines created at Rice University are proving themselves seaworthy. Each of the single-molecule, 244-atom submersible...
Eye Drops Could Clear Up Cataracts Using Newly Identified Chemical
A chemical that could potentially be used in eye drops to reverse cataracts has been identified by a team of scientists from UCSF, the University of Michigan (U-M), and Washington University in St. Lo...
Material Inspired By Nature Could Turn Water Into Fuel
Scientists have theoretically designed a new material that could help supply the world with clean energy by turning water into fuel, using just the power of the sun. Chemists at the University of Read...
Metallic Gels Produce Tunable Light Emission
Researchers at MIT have developed a family of materials that can emit light of precisely controlled colors — even pure white light — and whose output can be tuned to respond to a wide variety of exter...
Southampton Scientists Find New Way To Detect Ortho–Para Conversion In Water
New research by scientists from the University of Southampton has found that water molecules react differently to electric fields, which could provide a new way to study spin isomers at the single-mol...
Nanoparticles Target And Kill Cancer Stem Cells That Drive Tumor Growth
Many cancer patients survive treatment only to have a recurrence within a few years. Recurrences and tumor spreading are likely due to cancer stem cells that can be tough to kill with conventional can...
Fighting Climate Change – With Cement
Membrane-based technology developed at NTNU is one of four technologies that may be used in a full-scale CO2 capture project – in a cement factory. Gassnova, Norway’s state-funded effort to develop ca...
