Smallest-yet optical quantum memory device is a storage medium for optical quantum networks; potential to be scaled up for commercial use
From there, syngas can be converted downstream into small molecules, like ethanol, or larger hydrocarbons, such as those in gasoline.
Bioinspired approach combines pop-up fabrication with soft robotics
Cornell team conducted hundreds of experiments to capture the formation of these structures at early stages of their development.
Non-toxic, lubricant-infused coatings deter mussels and prevent their attachment by disrupting their mechanosensory and adhesive systems
UC Berkeley scientists have taught bacteria to cover themselves in tiny, highly efficient solar panels to produce useful chemical compounds.
Potential applications include more durable tires, wearable electronics, medical devices.
Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley scientists discover unique thermoelectric properties in cesium tin iodide.
Scientists have built an 'artificial material' that mimics quantum behavior.
