Researchers discover promising hydrogen storage material
Researchers develop treated surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move (w/ Video)
Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them. The work might enable new kinds of biomedical or microfluidic ...
High-purity hydrogen generated from a single device
Scientists create one-dimensional ferroelectric ice
Researchers turn cement into metal
(Phys.org) —In a move that would make the Alchemists of King Arthur's time green with envy, scientists have unraveled the formula for turning liquid cement into liquid metal. This makes cement a semi-conductor ...
Study raises questions on what causes silicon solar cell degradation
New bone-like material is lighter than water but as strong as steel
Materials shape human progress – think stone age or bronze age. The 21st century has been referred to as the molecular age, a time when scientists are beginning to manipulate materials at the atomic level ...
