Climate change poses a strategic dilemma for oil-exporting states of the Persian Gulf, according to a new paper by an expert in the Center for Energy Studies at Rice’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
Rice is on pace to double research funding by 2027 thanks to faculty success in attracting large, programmatic grants.
Rice University engineers build full lithium-ion batteries with silicon anodes and an alumina layer to protect cathodes from degrading. By limiting their energy density, the batteries promise excellent stability for transportation and grid storage use.
In 2000, the infamously confusing butterfly ballot led many voters in Florida’s Palm Beach County to mistakenly vote for the wrong presidential candidate, altering the outcome of the election – and American history.
Rice researchers and collaborators have created an imaging system that can see detailed objects around corners in real time.
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.
Theoretical simulations at Rice University suggest structural maintenance of chromosome proteins coil not only around each other but also around the strands of DNA they help manipulate. These strands are formed into loops that regulate transcription and other cellular processes.
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.
