3D Nanostructure Could Benefit Nanoelectronics, Gas Storage

July 15, 2014 5:48 pm | by Rice University | Comments

A three-dimensional porous nanostructure would have a balance of strength, toughness and ability to transfer heat that could benefit nanoelectronics, gas storage and composite materials that perform multiple functions, according to engineers at Rice University...

Nanophotonics Experts Create Powerful Molecular Sensor

July 15, 2014 5:43 pm | by Rice University | Comments

Nanophotonics experts at Rice University have created a unique sensor that amplifies the optical signature of molecules by about 100 billion times. Newly published tests found the device could accurately identify the composition and structure of individual molecules containing fewer than 20 atoms...

New Materials for Future Green Tech Devices

July 15, 2014 5:35 pm | by American Institute of Physics | Comments

From your hot car to your warm laptop, every machine and device in your life wastes a lot of energy through the loss of heat. But thermoelectric devices, which convert heat to electricity and vice versa, can harness that wasted heat, and possibly provide the green tech energy efficiency that's needed for a sustainable future...

Labs Characterize Carbon for Batteries

July 15, 2014 11:14 am | by Rice University | Comments

Lithium-ion batteries could benefit from a theoretical model created at that predicts how carbon components will perform as electrodes. The model is based on intrinsic electronic characteristics of materials used as battery anodes. These include the material’s quantum capacitance...

Researchers Demonstrate Novel, Tunable Nanoantennas

July 15, 2014 11:06 am | by University of Illinois College of Engineering | Comments

An interdisciplinary research team has developed a novel, tunable nanoantenna that paves the way for new kinds of plasmonic-based optomechanical systems whereby plasmonic field enhancement can actuate mechanical motion. “Recently, there has been a lot of interest in fabricating metal-based nanotextured surfaces..."

Phase-Changing Robots Move from Hard to Soft

July 15, 2014 10:42 am | by Massachusetts Institute of Technology | Comments

In the movie "Terminator 2," the shape-shifting T-1000 robot morphs into a liquid state to squeeze through tight spaces or to repair itself when harmed. Now a phase-changing material built from wax and foam, and capable of switching between hard and soft states, could allow even low-cost robots to perform the same feat...
