Team harnesses intense X-ray beam, observes unusual phenomenon for the first time
Using an enormous X-ray laser—one of only two such machines on Earth—University of Nebraska-Lincoln physicist Matthias Fuchs and scientists from around the world beat formidable odds to observe one of the most fundamental ...
Two major US aquifers contaminated by natural uranium
Nearly 2 million people throughout the Great Plains and California live above aquifer sites contaminated with natural uranium that is mobilized by human-contributed nitrate, according to a study from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Study is first to quantify global population growth compared to energy use
If you've lived between the year 1560 and the present day, more power to you. Literally.
Property of non-stick pans improves solar cell efficiency
The same quality that buffers a raincoat against downpours or a pan against sticky foods can also boost the performance of solar cells, according to a new study from UNL engineers.
New 2-D material's properties show promise
One completed a series of theoretical calculations to predict its properties with the help of a massive computing center. The other grew it in bulk before waxing its atom-thin whiskers with the assistance of adhesive tape.

UNL biologists have published a new study that lays bare several roots of how plants respond to drought.
Research team models new atomic structures of gold nanoparticle
They may deal in gold, atomic staples and electron volts rather than cement, support beams and kilowatt-hours, but chemists have drafted new nanoscale blueprints for low-energy structures capable of housing pharmaceuticals ...
Honey bee behavior altered by insecticides
Certain insecticides common to U.S. orchards appear to make honey bees substantially less busy, according to a new study led by UNL entomologists.
Engineers introduce design that mimics nature's camouflage
