Optimizing the Growth of Coatings on Nanowire Catalysts

by Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists chemically treated the surface of wire-looking nanostructures made of zinc oxide to apply a uniform coating of titanium dioxide; these semiconducting nanowires could be used as high-activity catalysts for solar fuel production

Illuminating Water Filtration

by Brookhaven National Laboratory

Researchers using ultrabright X-rays reveal the molecular structure of membranes used to purify seawater into drinking water

Surprising Discovery Could Lead to Better Batteries

by Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists have observed how lithium moves inside individual nanoparticles that make up batteries. The finding could help companies develop batteries that charge faster and last longer

Surprising Result Shocks Scientists Studying Spin

by Brookhaven National Laboratory

Findings on how differently sized nuclei respond to spin offer new insight into mechanisms affecting particle production in proton-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)
