redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team of French scientists have discovered a method that will allow for the quick production of hydrogen – a discovery that they claim could help power fuel cells, provide propellant for rockets and perhaps even help meet the world’s energy needs without the emission of greenhouse gases. The researchers, who will present their findings this week at the 2013 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco, have...

Researchers Shed New Light On Solar Water-splitting Process
2013-12-02 17:11:15

University of Oregon With the help of a new method called "dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry," University of Oregon scientists have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work. An important and overlooked parameter, they report, is the ion-permeability of electrocatalysts used in water-splitting devices. Their discovery could help replace a trial-and-error approach to paring electrocatalysts with semiconductors with an efficient method for using sunlight to...

Martian Atmosphere May Have Experienced Greenhouse Conditions In Ancient Times

[ Watch the Video: Was A Greenhouse Gas Effect Responsible For Ancient Water On Mars? ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The combination of molecular hydrogen, carbon dioxide and water could have created a greenhouse effect on Mars nearly four billion years ago, raising temperatures to the point that liquid water could exist, according to research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Nature Geoscience. That could help explain Nanedi Valles,...

X-ray Study Reveals Formation Of Iridium Trihydride At High Pressure
2013-11-20 10:34:40

Desy An international team of researchers has synthesized a new material that stores an unusually large amount of hydrogen. Performing high-pressure X-ray studies at DESY’s PETRA III and other light sources, the scientists detected the formation of previously unobserved iridium hydride from hydrogen and metallic iridium at a pressure of 55 gigapascals (GPa), corresponding to approximately 550,000 times the Earth’s atmospheric pressure. The new material can store up to three times more...

Rice University method gives accurate picture of gas storage by microscopic cages A computational method to quantify the adsorption of gas by porous zeolites should help labs know what to expect before they embark upon slow, costly experiments, according to researchers at Rice University. The new method created by engineers in Rice’s Multiscale Materials Modeling Lab accurately calculated the ability of two zeolites, small cage-like molecules with enormous surface area, to trap and...

EcoBots: Robots With ‘Hearts’ Powered By Urine, Waste
2013-11-08 17:02:41

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Whiz kids at the University of Bristol have taken another step toward creating an autonomous waste-driven robot by developing a heart-like pump that moves urine as it draws power from it. The latest technological splash expands on previous work from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory. The joint endeavor between the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol has produced four generations of ‘EcoBots’ that are...

Novel LEDs Lead The Way To Cheaper Displays
2013-11-08 10:42:54

University of Bonn Applications in smart phones or luminescent bathroom tiles conceivable / Collaboration of Bonn University, Regensburg University, the University of Utah and MIT OLEDs are already used in the displays of smart phones or digital cameras today. They offer an especially bright image with high contrast, but come with a serious drawback: typically, only one quarter of the electrical energy invested in running the device is actually converted into light. This ratio can be...

Astatine is a radioactive chemical element. The symbol for Astatine is At and its atomic number is 85. Astatine is the heaviest halogen discovered. It was first produced by Dale R. Corson, Kenneth Ross Mackenzie, and Emilio Segrè in 1940. Although astatine is produced by radioactive decay in nature, it is typically found only in miniscule amounts due to its short half-life (the time it takes for one half of the atoms of a given radioactive substance to decay or disintegrate). Trace amounts...

monteith
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
