Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Kansas State University have demonstrated a spray-on mixture of carbon nanotubes and ceramic that has unprecedented ability to resist damage while absorbing laser light. Coatings that absorb as much of the energy of high-powered lasers as possible without breaking down are essential for optical power detectors that measure the output of such lasers, which are used, for example, in military equipment for defusing...

No Side Effects With New Cancer Radiation Treatment
2013-04-03 18:51:30

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists have developed a new form of radiation therapy that successfully put cancer into remission in mice. The new treatment did not produce any harmful side effects typically seen with conventional chemo and radiation cancer therapies. The team says clinical trials in humans could begin as soon as funding is secured. “Since the 1930s, scientists have sought success with a cancer treatment known as boron neutron...

Fine Patterns That Combine Single-atom-thick Graphene And Boron Nitride Created By Researchers
2013-01-28 08:00:21

Rice University Rice University scientists have taken an important step toward the creation of two-dimensional electronics with a process to make patterns in atom-thick layers that combine a conductor and an insulator. The materials at play — graphene and hexagonal boron nitride — have been merged into sheets and built into a variety of patterns at nanoscale dimensions. Rice introduced a technique to stitch the identically structured materials together nearly three years...

FARMINGTON, Conn., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Carbon and graphite market prospects are heavily tied to the end-use industries, including aluminum and steel. Primary aluminum represents a major end-use industry for carbon and graphite products. Aluminum demand has been increasing at a healthy pace over the past few years. The increasing per capita steel consumption in China and India are primarily accelerating the worldwide steel consumption. The healthy growth in aluminum and steel...

Nanotube 'Sponge' Has Potential In Oil Spill Cleanup
2012-05-10 12:51:25

A carbon nanotube sponge that can soak up oil in water with unparalleled efficiency has been developed with help from computational simulations performed at the Department of Energy's (DOE's) Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Carbon nanotubes, which consist of atom-thick sheets of carbon rolled into cylinders, have captured scientific attention in recent decades because of their high strength, potential high conductivity and light weight. But producing nanotubes in bulk for specialized...

University of Arizona physicists are making discoveries that may advance electronic circuit technology Graphite, more commonly known as pencil lead, could become the next big thing in the quest for smaller and less power-hungry electronics. Resembling chicken wire on a nano scale, graphene — single sheets of graphite — is only one atom thick, making it the world's thinnest material. Two million graphene sheets stacked up would not be as thick as a credit card. The tricky...

Colemanite (Ca2B6O11·5H2O) is a borate mineral found in evaporite deposits. Colemanite is a secondary mineral that forms when borax is deposited, and then regularly covered with boron containing water. The boron remains after the water evaporates, and the boron and borax eventually form other minerals as for example Colemanite. It was named after William T. Coleman (1824-1893), owner of the mine where it was first found.
