CIRES and RASEI researchers suggest that wind resources in the next century may decrease in many regions in the Northern Hemisphere--and could sharply increase in several hotspot regions down south. The first-of-its-kind study predicting how global wind power may shift with climate change appears today in Nature

A Diamond as The Steppingstone to New Materials, Using Plasma Physics Technology

This is Yogesh Vohra.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - University of Alabama at Birmingham physicists have taken the first step in a five-year effort to create novel compounds that surpass diamonds in heat resistance and nearly rival them in hardness. They are supported by a five-year, $20 million National Science Foundation award to

Superior Hydrogen Catalyst Just Grows That Way

These inorganic 'flowers,' color added, were created by Sandia National Laboratories researcher Stanley Chou and University of California, Merced colleague Vincent Tung in a spray-printing process that uses molybdenum disulfide to create a 'flowering' hydrogen catalyst far cheaper than platinum and reasonably close in efficiency.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Replacing your everyday gas guzzler with a hydrogen fueled car could drastically reduce your carbon footprint. So why don't we all make the switch? One of reasons we don't is the expensive platinum catalyst required to operate hydrogen fuel cells efficiently. Research

Hearing Hybrid and Electric Vehicles While Quieting Noise Pollution
WASHINGTON, D.C. Dec. 5, 2017 -- Europe, as well as most of the world, faces a future with hybrid or pure electronic road vehicles that rely on alternative drive chains. But these low-emission vehicles are considered too quiet for hearing-impaired pedestrians, so the European Union is mandating that they be equipped

Sustainable Solvent Platform for Photon Upconversion Increases Solar Utilization Efficiency

Deep eutectic solvents used as the medium of sensitizer and emitter chromophores (left) and the photon upconverter developed (right). The sample converts low-intensity (a few mW) green light into clear blue emission and demonstrates high thermal stability during exposure to a burner flame for 1 min.

The conversion of solar energy into electricity is currently restricted by a concept known as the Shockley-Quesser limit. This limitation allows only photons that have higher energies than those of the bandgap to be used, while those with lower energies are wasted. In an effort to obtain a solution to this problem

Next-Generation Solvent Contributes to Next-Generation Biofuel Production From Biomass

After dissolving plant biomass by the novel solvent, carboxylate-type liquid zwitterion, hydrolysis and fermentation were consecutively carried out in one reaction pot for conversion into ethanol.

The first-generation biofuel, industrialized, ethanol, is produced from foodstuffs like maize, and thus poses great concern about a possible future shortage of food. It is therefore necessary to produce ethanol from non-food biomass like weeds, waste paper, paper cup, etc. (second-generation biofuel ethanol).
