At the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, a group of researchers has shone new light on molecules that tend to alter their shape in response to light.
A sensational new solar material known as organic-inorganic halide perovskites could soon enable the United States to realize its solar goals and decarbonize the power grid. Perovskite solar materials are one thousand times thinner than silicon and can be altered to respond to various colors of the solar spectrum just by changing their composition mix.
A team of materials scientists and chemists has determined the proper stack pressure that lithium metal batteries.
The variety of humble algae that cover the surface of ponds and seas could hold the key to boosting the efficiency of artificial photosynthesis
A chemist at The University of Texas at Arlington is working to create new synthetic materials that can improve on inorganic metal oxides for use in a variety of energy-saving applications.
According to a new analysis by researchers at Georgia Tech's Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, homeowners who install solar panels wind up using more electricity than before going green, a finding that could have implications for energy planning and climate change mitigation efforts.
Hydrogen is a chemical element that has been extensively recommended as an alternative fuel with zero carbon emission. However, most of the commercial hydrogen fuel production is achieved from the refining of fossils fuels.
The abundant availability of sodium and its low cost has turned everyone’s attention toward sodium-ion batteries (SIBs). Electrodes having a higher capacity to store Na+ and more cycling stability are key to enhance the energy density and rate capability of SIBs.
Solid oxide electrolysis cell (SOEC) holds great potential when it comes to conversion of CO2 and renewable clean electricity energy storage. It has the ability to convert CO2 and H2O concurrently into syngas or hydrocar...
Lithium-ion batteries are common but can pose safety problems. Solid-state batteries are smaller, safer and store more energy. Scientists at Argonne are accelerating a new generation of better batteries.
