The Welch Institute for Advanced Materials names Sir Anthony Cheetham and Professor Kristin Persson to its Scientific Advisory Board.
Rice President David Leebron regaled a crowd of local business and education leaders at a luncheon hosted by the Greater Houston Partnership with a fireside chat on the future of higher education, the COVID-19 response and more.
Rice University’s Gustavo Scuseria wins the American Chemical Society Award in Theoretical Chemistry.
Rice physicists have confirmed the topological origins of magnons, magnetic features they discovered three years ago in a 2D material that could prove useful for spintronics.
Artificial intelligence can speed the development of 3D-printed bioscaffolds that help injuries heal, according to Rice researchers.
Rice engineers use graphene quantum dots to trap transition metals for high atom loading in single atom catalysis.
Rice University bioengineers collaborated on a six-year study that systematically analyzed how the surface architecture of silicone breast implants influences adverse side effects.
Rice University engineers have created microscopic seeds for growing remarkably uniform 2D perovskite crystals that are both stable and highly efficient at harvesting electricity from sunlight.
A simple chemical process developed at Rice University creates light and highly absorbent aerogels that can take a beating.
With the imminent demolition of Rice University’s Abercrombie Engineering Laboratory, the space will soon be cleared for a new engineering and science building, according to Rice administrators. International architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has been selected as lead architect for the new building. Houston’s Scientia Architects will consult on laboratory design.
In a twist befitting the strange nature of quantum mechanics, physicists have discovered the Hall effect — a characteristic change in the way electricity is conducted in the presence of a magnetic field — in a nonmagnetic quantum material to which no magnetic field was applied.
The Robert A. Welch Foundation announces the largest single gift in the history of Rice University, $100 million, to establish The Welch Institute for world-leading advanced materials research.
