Nanocrystal links could lead to better electronics, scientists say

Nanocrystal links could lead to better electronics

Chemists and engineers today are very interested in a kind of nanotechnology enabled by tiny islands of nanoparticles called “colloidal nanocrystals.” They can be made...

Scientists discover new pathway for artificial photosynthesis

Humans have for ages taken cues from nature to build their own devices, but duplicating the steps in the complicated electronic dance of photosynthesis...

Study Reduces Casimir Force to Lowest Recorded Level

A research team that includes a physics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has recorded a drastically reduced measurement of the Casimir effect,...

Geologists Simulate Deep Earthquakes in the Laboratory

More than 20 years ago, geologist Harry Green, now a distinguished professor of the graduate division at the University of California, Riverside, and colleagues...

Breakthrough technique could make electronics smaller, better

An international group of researchers from the University of Minnesota, Argonne National Laboratory and Seoul National University have discovered a groundbreaking technique in manufacturing...

Small reactors could figure into US energy future

A newly released study from the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC) concludes that small modular reactors may hold the key to the future of U.S. nuclear power generation. "Clearly, a robust commercial SMR industry is highly adv...

Chemists document workings of key staph enzyme — and how to...

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Researchers have determined the structure and mechanism of an enzyme that performs the crucial first step in the formation of cholesterol and a key virulence factor in staph bacteria. Chemists at the University of Illino...

Tiny 3-D images shed light on origin of Earth’s core

To answer the big questions, it often helps to look at the smallest details. That is the approach Stanford mineral physicist Wendy Mao is taking to understanding a major event in Earth's inner history. Using a new technique to scrutinize how minute ...

APS releases report on renewable energy and the electricity grid

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. policymakers must focus more closely on developing new energy storage technologies as they consider a national renewable electricity standard, according to one of the principal recommendations in a newly released report, Int...

Molecular fossil

In today's world of sophisticated organisms proteins are the stars. They are the indispensible catalytic workhorses, carrying out the processes essential to life. But long, long ago ribonucleic acid (RNA) reigned supreme. Now Northwestern Universi...
