New Approach Reduces Damaging Effects of Hydrogen Exposure on High-Tech Metal Alloys

New Approach Reduces Damaging Effects of Hydrogen Exposure on High-Tech Metal Alloys

High-tech metal alloys are widely used in important materials such as the cladding that protects the fuel inside a nuclear reactor. But even the best alloys degrade over time, victims of a reactor’s high temperatures, radiation, and hydrogen-rich environment. Now, a team of MIT researchers has found a way of greatly reducing the damaging effects these metals suffer from exposure to hydrogen. [More]

ORNL Discovery Could Potentially Replace Silicon for Semiconductors

ORNL Discovery Could Potentially Replace Silicon for Semiconductors

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has developed a new processing technique for two-dimensional (2D) electronic devices. This new technique has the potential to reduce the power consumption of the devices, and to increase their efficiency and mechanical flexibility. [More]
New Method Developed for Reliable and High Performance Glass-Ceramic-to-Metal Seals

New Method Developed for Reliable and High Performance Glass-Ceramic-to-Metal Seals

Stainless steel contains components that protect it from rough environments encountered in the defense and aerospace industries. These components need paths that allow electricity to power and interact with them. The paths require a genuine insulation seal to prevent them from contacting the metal case, which can limit the communication and power lines. [More]
UTA Researchers Develop High-Performing Materials to Improve Solar Fuel Generation

UTA Researchers Develop High-Performing Materials to Improve Solar Fuel Generation

Chemists from the University of Texas at Arlington have created new high-performing materials to develop cells that utilize sunlight to separate water and carbon dioxide into useable fuels, such as hydrogen gas and methanol. These “green fuels” are used for home appliances and to store energy in batteries and power cars. [More]
