Fast and efficient biologically inspired catalyst could someday make fuel cells cheaper To make fuel cells more economical, engineers want a fast and efficient iron-based molecule that splits hydrogen gas to make electricity. Online Feb. 17 at Nature Chemistry, researchers report such a catalyst. It is the first iron-based catalyst that converts hydrogen directly to electricity. The result moves chemists and engineers one step closer to widely affordable fuel cells. "A drawback with...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For the last four years Congress and the White House have been unable to pass a federal budget, settling each time for continuing resolutions. However, such stopgaps keep funding levels flat, or even, accounting for inflation, in decline. In 2007, a plan was laid out to maintain US leadership in the field of nuclear physics, with the continued support of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a significant upgrade...

Berkeley Lab scientists develop a new nanotech tool to probe solar-energy conversion If nanoscience were television, we'd be in the 1950s. Although scientists can make and manipulate nanoscale objects with increasingly awesome control, they are limited to black-and-white imagery for examining those objects. Information about nanoscale chemistry and interactions with light–the atomic-microscopy equivalent to color–is tantalizingly out of reach to all but the most persistent...
