Surfaces with differently shaped nanoscale textures may yield improved materials for applications in transportation, energy, and diagnostics
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have helped to uncover the nanoscale structure of a novel form of carbon, contributing to an explanation of why this new material acts like a super-absorbent sponge when it comes to soaking up electric charge.
Stop-and-go driving can wear on your nerves, but it really does a number on the precious platinum that drives reactions in automotive fuel cells.
Scientists have fabricated transparent thin films capable of absorbing light and generating electric charge over a relatively large area.
The speed of nanoparticle assembly can be accelerated with the assistance of the molecule that carries lifeâ€™s genetic instructions, DNA, a team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Brookhaven National Laboratory recently found.
- Having no light.
- Of or relating to the region of a body of water that is not reached by sunlight and in which photosynthesis is unable to occur.
