Motorized Microscopic Matchsticks Move In Water With Sense Of Direction
2013-09-10 12:11:39

University of Warwick Chemists, physicists and computer scientists at the University of Warwick have come together to devise a new powerful and very versatile way of controlling the speed and direction of motion of microscopic structures in water using what they have dubbed chemically ‘motorized microscopic matchsticks’. Before now most research seeking to influence the direction of motion of microscopic components have had to use outside influences such as a magnetic field or the...

Method Developed To Make Hydrogen Fuel From Sunlight
2013-08-29 15:41:47

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Berkeley Lab Researchers at Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis Make Unique Semiconductor/Catalyst Construct In the search for clean, green sustainable energy sources to meet human needs for generations to come, perhaps no technology matches the ultimate potential of artificial photosynthesis. Bionic leaves that could produce energy-dense fuels from nothing more than sunlight, water and atmosphere-warming carbon dioxide, with no byproducts...

Oxygen ‘Sponge’ Presents Path To Better Catalysts, Energy Materials
2013-08-29 08:06:10

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a new oxygen “sponge” that can easily absorb or shed oxygen atoms at low temperatures. Materials with these novel characteristics would be useful in devices such as rechargeable batteries, sensors, gas converters and fuel cells. Materials containing atoms that can switch back and forth between multiple oxidation states are technologically important but very rare in...

Size Matters When Nanocrystals Go Through Phases
2013-08-26 15:35:09

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Berkeley Lab Researchers at the Molecular Foundry Reveal Fundamental Size-Dependence of Metal Nanocrystals Undergoing Phase Transitions Understanding what happens to a material as it undergoes phase transformations – changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas or a plasma – is of fundamental scientific interest and critical for optimizing commercial applications. For metal nanocrystals, assumptions about the size-dependence of phase...
