researchers discover that chaos makes carbon materials lighter and stronger




mit aerospace researchers have demonstrated that some randomness in the arrangement of carbon atoms makes materials that are lighter and stronger, shown at lower right in illustration, compared to a more densely packed and tightly ordered structure, shown lower left. they formed a type of disordered...



chaos leads to stronger carbon fiber




the team found that the inherent disorder in this particular resin (phenol-formaldehyde) formed 3d connections that are not only tough to break, but only require a fraction of the usual carbon atoms to create their structure -- you could use much more of it in a vehicle and still have a lighter desi...

researchers shoot for success with simulations of laser pulse-material interacti




with the advent of laser technology in the 1960s, materials scientists gained a new tool to both study and modify materials. today, lasers allow researchers to manipulate materials on atomic and subatomic levels, leading to new materials and a host of other applications.



eu researchers aim to halve co2 footprint of carbon fiber production




researchers from across europe, led by university of limerick (ul), ireland, have begun a project to produce carbon fiber from forestry by-products.



czech scientists develop magnetic carbon




a dream of many generations of researchers has been fulfilled by a discovery made by scientists at the regional centre of advanced technologies and materials (rcptm) at the palacky university in olomouc. by using graphene, an ultrathin form of carbon, these scientists prepared the first non-metallic...



researchers make concrete production carbon neutral




licht is the mind behind step, a process where atmospheric carbon dioxide is sucked out of the sky and turned into carbon fibers. that would turn a gas that is slowly killing us into a cheap, and abundant, material that's both ultra-strong and ultra-light. imagine the waste products from power stati...



researchers create tough material for next generation of powerful engines




silicon carbide nanotubes attached to separate silicon carbide fibers, used by nasa, entangle each other in this electron microscope image. the material created at rice university is intended for a ceramic composite that would make rocket engines stronger, lighter and better able to withstand extrem...

molecular 'treasure maps' to help discover new materials




scientists at the university of southampton working with colleagues at the university of liverpool have developed a new method which has the potential to revolutionise the way we search for, design and produce new materials.



researchers discover tree trunks act as methane source in upland forests




credit: notneb82, wikimedia commonsa new study from the university of delaware is one of the first in the world to show that tree trunks in upland forests actually emit methane rather than store it, representing a new, previously unaccounted source of this powerful greenhouse gas. methane is about 2...

european team announces superconductivity breakthrough




"this new material (eurotapes) could be used to make more potent and lighter wind turbines," xavier obradors said, predicting it will make it possible to manufacture wind turbines one day with double the potency than existing oneseuropean researchers said tuesday they had developed a cheaper and mor...



reusable carbon nanotubes could be the water filter of the future




a new class of carbon nanotubes could be the next-generation clean-up crew for toxic sludge and contaminated water, say researchers at rochester institute of technology.



presstv-french election chaos adds to le pen’s chances




ramin mazaheripress tv, parisfrance’s presidential campaign continues to be surrounded in controversy and chaos. a lack of unity on the left and corruption scandals at the right makes the race too wide-open to predict a winner.

researchers create artificial materials atom-by-atom




researchers at aalto university have manufactured artificial materials with engineered electronic properties. by moving individual atoms under their microscope, the scientists were able to create atomic lattices with a predetermined electrical response. the possibility to precisely arrange the atoms...



ford tests 3d printer that can manufacture car parts of any size and shape




ford today said it will be the first automaker to test a new 3d printer that can build parts of unlimited size. the company is also testing the printer to make prototypes of one-piece auto parts that could be used in production of future vehicles.the use of a 3d printer capable of manufacturing part...

climate change will affect plants and soil differently




a new european study has found that soil carbon loss is more sensitive to climate change compared to carbon taken up by plants. in drier regions, soil carbon loss decreased but in wetter regions soil carbon loss increased. this could result in a positive feedback to the atmosphere leading to an addi...
