(Utah State University) Multi-university effort develops solar energy storage to enable decentralized electrification systems in remote areas.
(Montana State University) Jack Brookshire’s work examines the climate and ecological causes of increased plant productivity in the Northern Great Plains.
(Colorado State University) CSU biologists have traced the stability of plant mitochondrial genomes to a particular gene – MSH1 – that plants have but animals don’t. Their experiments, described in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could lend insight into why animal mitochondrial genomes tend to mutate.
Researchers are advancing gas membrane materials to expand practical technology options for reducing industrial carbon emissions.
Solar energy researchers are shining their scientific spotlight on materials with a crystal structure discovered nearly two centuries ago.
(Oregon State University) Solar energy researchers are shining their scientific spotlight on materials with a crystal structure discovered nearly two centuries ago.
(Binghamton University) M. Stanley Whittingham, a 2019 Nobel Laureate and distinguished professor at Binghamton University, State University of New York, has been named to the Carnegie Corporation of New York’s 2020 list of “Great Immigrants, Great Americans.”
Researchers have developed a new environmentally friendly method for removing toxic chemicals from water. A newly invented machine, called the Matrix Assembly Cluster Source (MACS), has been used to design a breakthrough water treatment method using a solvent-free approach.
(Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Materials scientists have synthesized a new type of perovskite–one of the most common crystal structures of materials deployed for a range of uses, from superconductors to photovoltaics–that goes against conventional thinking about how such structures behave at extreme pressures such as those that exist deep in the Earth.
