There have been more than 700 oil spills worldwide in the past 20 years, polluting oceans and coastlines as well as endangering marine ecology and other wildlife.

Scientists work on creating molecular-sized microchip elements

Modern silicon-based integrated circuits (ICs) have reached the practical limits of miniaturisation, while the use of organics can potentially allow the creation of microchip elements as large as a single molecule. Scientists ...

You're not so tough, h-BN

Hexagonal-boron nitride is tough, but Rice University scientists are making it easier to get along with.

Interactive quantum chemistry in virtual reality

Scientists from the University of Bristol's Intangible Realities Laboratory (IRL) and ETH Zurich have used virtual reality and artificial intelligence algorithms to learn the details of chemical change.

The promise of deep grooves

A manufacturing technique that could help the semiconductor industry make more powerful computer chips began in the humblest of places—at a lunch table at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory.
