UCLA and University of Connecticut scientists design supercapacitor that could make pacemakers and other instruments safer and more durable Researchers from UCLA and the University of Connecticut have designed a new biofriendly energy storage system called a biological supercapacitor, which … Continue reading →
At the age of 20, Karan Jerath has already invented a device that could prevent oil spills, became the youngest member of the Forbes 30 Under 30 Energy list, and been selected as a UN Young Leader for the Sustainable … Continue reading →
Multicolored laser light is the key to cooling these atoms to nearly absolute zero UCLA physicists have shown that shining multicolored laser light on rubidium atoms causes them to lose energy and cool to nearly absolute zero. This result suggests … Continue reading →
ANN ARBOR — Researchers have engineered a material that could lead to a new generation of computing devices, packing in more computing power while consuming a fraction of the energy that today’s electronics require.
Berkeley Lab scientist says results could provide new target for obesity research A new study is further burnishing copper’s reputation as an essential nutrient for human physiology. A research team led by a scientist at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence … Continue reading →
Groundbreaking observations could help develop better, more efficient materials for electronics and alternative energy Using a state-of-the-art ultrafast electron microscope, University of Minnesota researchers have recorded the first-ever videos showing how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale traveling at … Continue reading →
New research by the University of Washington and the UA shows that background odors can interfere with pollinators’ ability to find flowers. Car and truck exhaust fumes that foul the air for humans also cause problems for pollinators. In new … Continue reading →
