Solar Panel Wars: Study Shows How US Could Compete With China
2013-09-05 14:45:43

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists, publishing a paper in the journal Energy and Environmental Science, say they have found a way for the US to be a cost-competitor to China in the field of solar panel manufacturing. China is currently the world's dominant manufacturer of solar panels because of its low labor costs and strong government support. However, researchers at MIT and the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have...

New Evidence To Help In Search For Charge 'Stripes' In Superconductors
2013-09-03 11:17:10

Brookhaven National Laboratory Findings identify signature that will help scientists investigate and understand materials that carry current with no resistance Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified a series of clues that particular arrangements of electrical charges known as "stripes" may play a role in superconductivity—the ability of some materials to carry electric current with no energy loss. But uncovering the detailed...

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...

Research Could Help Scientists Predict How Carbon Is Stored Underground
2013-08-23 05:49:36

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Computer simulations conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could help scientists make sense of a recently observed and puzzling wrinkle in one of nature’s most important chemical processes. It turns out that calcium carbonate—the ubiquitous compound that is a major component of seashells, limestone, concrete, antacids and myriad other naturally and industrially produced substances—may...
