Missouri S&T Use Thin-Film Coating Technique to Improve Performance of Lithium-Ion Battery

Batteries are everyday objects people don’t think about — until they run out of juice. That’s especially true the more ubiquitous an object is, such as laptop computers and cellphones that need to have their batteries charged seemingly every day. [More]
Rice Engineers Explore Light Absorption Properties of Atomically Thin Molybdenum Disulfide

Rice Engineers Explore Light Absorption Properties of Atomically Thin Molybdenum Disulfide

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is used as an effective lubricant in motorcycle and aircraft engines, and in the universal and CV joints of automobiles and trucks. The material also exhibits a remarkable light absorption property, according to Isabell Thomann, an engineering researcher at Rice University. This quality makes molybdenum disulfide a potential candidate for the development of photocatalytic and optoelectronic devices. [More]
Researchers Recreate Bacterial Properties to Shape Synthetic Materials

Researchers Recreate Bacterial Properties to Shape Synthetic Materials

All living cells are essentially soft and squishy balloons containing DNA, proteins, and a large amount of water. These cells are surrounded by oily membranes, which can withstand considerable amounts of stress like bending, stretching, and squeezing. It was only recently that researchers have started to understand the functions and organization resulting from that stress. [More]
