Materials scientists at Rice University and the University of Pennsylvania are calling for a collective, global effort to fast-track the mass production of 2D materials like graphene and molybdenum disulfide.
Rice University scientists use an industrial laser to turn adhesive tape into a component for safer, anode-free lithium metal batteries.
Artificial enzymes made of treated charcoal could have the power to curtail damaging levels of superoxides that appear after an injury.
The Hertz Fellowship is as prestigious as it is selective: Only 16 fellows each year are admitted to the program, which funds five years of graduate research and offers lifelong professional support through the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation.
Scientists at Rice University are using high-energy pulses of electricity to turn any source of carbon into turbostratic graphene in an instant. The process promises environmental benefits by turning waste into valuable graphene that can then strengthen concrete and other composite materials.
Fast charge and discharge of some lithium-ion batteries with intentional defects degrades their performance and endurance, according to Rice University engineers.
Keeping track of a child’s shots could be so much easier with technology invented by a new Rice University professor and his colleagues.
