Scientists have come up with a material, essentially an ink, that they say could be used to safely test liquids brought on board airplanes.
MIT and oil company Eni open the doors to the Eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Research Center, where researchers are experimenting with materials and equipment for low-cost solar.
Rensselaer researchers say sulfur-doped and microwave-cooked nanomaterials could lead to refrigerators with no moving parts or cars that make electricity from waste heat.
Researchers tinker with nanomaterials in an effort to improve the efficiency of cheap quantum-dot-sensitized solar cells.
Start-up opens DOE-funded pilot facility to make nanomaterials optimized for energy storage in ultracapacitors and batteries for hybrid vehicles or grid storage.
The Eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Research Center is experimenting with nanomaterials for solar cells that can be coated onto paper and other flexible substrates.
Nanopaper shaped into three-dimensional forms ends what has been holding scientists back, researchers say. Photos: Pulp meets nanotech
Information on the long-term health effects of nanomaterials remains scarce, so a group of researchers offers recommendations to fill the void.
Got a degree in nanomaterials and wondering where to move? Try Massachusetts, but stay out of the Dakotas or Arkansas.
