Micro-engineered battery architectures, combined with high energy material such as tin, offer exciting new battery features
When bad weather strikes or illness invades, zoos and aquariums are among the most vulnerable facilities affected.
University of Illinois microbiology professor Isaac Cann and his colleagues found bacterial enzymes in the human gut that can rival those of the cow rumen in their ability to break down the plant fiber hemicellulose for biofuels production.
Substances found in bee, snake and scorpion venom could potentially act as effective anti-tumor agents according to University of Illinois researchers
Art of Science: Images from the Institute for Genomic Biology.
An art exhibit at Chicago's Midway Airport features images created by using microscopy equipment by ZEISS. Researchers from the Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) Core Facilities, affiliated with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, used state-of-the-art microscopes for pioneering research to capture images that address significant problems facing humanity related to health, agriculture, energy and the environment.
A multi-institutional team of engineers has developed a new approach to the fabrication of nanostructures for the semiconductor and magnetic storage industries. This approach combines top-down advanced ink-jet printing technology with a bottom-up approach that involves self-assembling block copolymers, a type of material that can spontaneously form ultrafine structures.
