For the first time, engineers at the University of New South Wales have demonstrated that hydrogen can be released and reabsorbed from a promising storage material, overcoming a major hurdle to its use as an alternative fuel source.
Penn State College of Medicine has been awarded a $1 million research grant from the PA Department of Health's CURE program, earmarked for the development of a cancer treatment with commercialization potential.
Researchers have shown that graphene has additional applications in magnetic data storage. They have developed a method to measure magnetic fields by detecting changes in the electrical resistance of graphene.
Researchers from two SLAC-Stanford joint institutes, the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) and the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis, recently joined forces to investigate a catalyst that promotes energy-releasing reactions in fuel cells.
Multiferroika könnten ein neues Zeitalter in der Elektronik einläuten, insbesondere in der elektronischen Schaltungs-, Sensor- und Speichertechnologie. Denn in Multiferroika treten Magnetismus (die Ausrichtung mikroskopischer Magnete) und Ferroelektrizität (die Ausrichtung elektrischer Dipole) simultan auf.
A University of Houston researcher has developed a nanoparticle coating for solar panels that makes it easier to keep the panels clean, maintaining their efficiency for longer and reducing the maintenance and operations costs.
