A theory by Rice University scientists suggests putting graphene on an undulating surface stresses it enough to create a minute electromagnetic field. The phenomenon could be useful for creating 2D electron optics or valleytronics devices.
The rising costs of hospital care -- among the major contributors to rising health care costs as a whole -- can be alleviated by requiring hospitals to be more transparent on the prices of their services, according to a new report from Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
A fraction of the wind and solar projects already proposed in Texas could eliminate the state’s remaining coal power plants and their emissions, according to Rice University engineers.
Grant recognizes a career dedicated to cultural ambassadorship between France and the United States
Rice University chemical and biomolecular engineer Thomas Senftle has won a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to advance machine learning techniques for designing new catalysts.
Getting out and mentoring elementary students in physical fitness turns out to be just as beneficial for college students, Rice University study finds.
Saudi Aramco joins Rice’s Carbon Hub research initiative to accelerate the energy transition by developing sustainable uses of hydrocarbons.
Study finds more research is needed to determine how climate change may impact El Niño.
Rice engineers discover unusual properties in magnetized colloids that surprisingly adhere to the physics described by Kelvin’s equation, which models the thermodynamics of molecular systems.
Rice computer scientists introduce Variabel, which uses sequencing data to identify “low-frequency variants” of SARS-CoV-2 in public data sets. The program has also been tested on data from patients with Ebola and norovirus.
Rice and Houston Methodist are creating a center to advance research and education in human performance.
Two-thirds of Muslims, half of Jews and more than a third of evangelical Protestant Christians experience workplace discrimination, albeit in different ways, according to a new study from Rice University’s Religion and Public Life Program (RPLP).
The United States’ immigration system is failing to provide the nation’s economy with enough high-skilled and productive workers to grow and remain competitive on a global scale, according to a new report from experts at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
“High-skilled” immigrants from Mexico are major contributors to the United States’ so-called “knowledge economy,” and fostering that relationship will benefit both countries, according to a new report from Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
Rice chemists have discovered surface interactions could be tunable at the single-protein level
