Rice physicists and collaborators have observed quantum entanglement among "billions of billions" of flowing electrons in a quantum critical material.
Rice University researchers have identified a simpler way to rid water of cancer-causing pollutants and turn them into valuable chemicals.
Fast charge and discharge of some lithium-ion batteries with intentional defects degrades their performance and endurance, according to Rice University engineers.
George Abbey, senior fellow in space policy at the Baker Institute for Public Policy, was elected to the Lone Star Flight Museum's Texas Aviation Hall of Fame. He will be inducted at a luncheon May 8 at Houston's Ellington Airport.
Rice University engineers have created a light-powered nanoparticle that could shrink the carbon footprint of syngas producers.
Researchers at Rice and their colleagues get their first detailed look at how plant proteins reconfigure themselves when exposed to light.
Drug use among people arrested for nonviolent drug offenses should be treated primarily as a public health issue, according to drug policy experts at Rice’s Baker Institute for Public Policy and the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition.
Keeping track of a child’s shots could be so much easier with technology invented by a new Rice University professor and his colleagues.
With initial support from Shell, Rice University has launched Carbon Hub, a climate change research initiative to fundamentally change how the world uses hydrocarbons. Carbon Hub's goal is a zero-emissions future in which hydrocarbons are not burned. Instead, they are split to make clean hydrogen energy and valuable carbon materials.
A new study finds Malawi made sustained improvements in the survival of babies with respiratory illness by adopting CPAP nationwide.
Rice physicists show cerium zirconium pyrochlore qualifies as the first possible 3D quantum spin liquid.
A Rice University-led team of neuroengineers is developing nonsurgical headset technology for brain-to-brain communication "at the speed of thought."
Scientists at Rice University have discovered that the strong force field emitted by a Tesla coil causes carbon nanotubes to self-assemble into long wires, a phenomenon they call “Teslaphoresis.”
