Ultrasound Processing Cheaper, Greener Than Argon Degassing for Aluminium Alloy Production

A pilot scale study conducted by researchers at Brunel University London has helped affirm that ultrasound treatment of molten metal could help produce high quality aluminium castings through a greener, cleaner and more efficient method. [More]
Quasi-Random Pattern of Blu-Ray Discs Could Enhance Light Absorption of Solar Cells

Quasi-Random Pattern of Blu-Ray Discs Could Enhance Light Absorption of Solar Cells

An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Northwestern University have discovered that Blu-ray discs could also help improve solar cell performance. These discs have a quasi-random pattern for data storage. When this pattern is transferred to solar cells it can increase the light absorption capacity of these cells. [More]

Scalable Isolation Technique for Atomically Thin Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets

Scalable Isolation Technique for Atomically Thin Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets

Although wonder material graphene is extremely useful in some applications owing to its lightweight and ultra-strong characteristics, it cannot be the solution for all the world’s problems. In that regard, researchers worldwide are in search of new materials having the same level of potential. Graphene expert Mark Hersam at McCormick shows interest in molybdenum disulfide, a transition metal dichalcogenide. [More]
