Machine-Learning Analysis of X-ray Data Picks Out Key Catalytic Properties

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists seeking to design new catalysts to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane have used a novel artificial intelligence (AI) approach to identify key catalytic properties. By using this method to track the size, structure, and chemistry of catalytic particles under real reaction conditions, the scientists can identify which properties correspond to the best catalytic performance, and then use that information to guide the design of more efficient catalysts.

'Artificial leaf' successfully produces clean gas

University of Cambridge

A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an 'artificial leaf' that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, and which could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to petrol.

3D Printing, Bioinks Create Implantable Blood Vessels

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A biomimetic blood vessel was fabricated using a modified 3D cell printing technique and bioinks. The result is a fully functional blood vessel with a dual-layer architecture that outperforms existing engineered tissue and brings 3D-printed blood vessels several fundamental steps closer to clinical use. The results, published in Applied Physics Reviews, include details on the triple-coaxial 3D printing technology and analysis of the unique architecture, physical strengths and biological activity of the engineered tissue.

Porous Polymer Coatings Dynamically Control Light and Heat

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineers have developed dynamic porous polymer coatings that enable inexpensive and scalable ways to control light and heat in buildings. They took advantage of the optical switchability of PPCs in the solar wavelengths to regulate solar heating and daylighting, and extended the concept to thermal infrared wavelengths to modulate heat radiated by objects.

Real texture for lab-grown meat

Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences

Lab-grown or cultured meat could revolutionize food production, providing a greener, more sustainable, more ethical alternative to large-scale meat production. But getting lab-grown meat from the petri dish to the dinner plate requires solving several major problems

Argonne multidisciplinary team develops new probe for battery research: Strength in numbers

Argonne National Laboratory

An Argonne team has developed a powerful technique for probing in three dimensions the nanostructure for cathode materials of next-generation batteries. Such batteries could one day revolutionize energy storage for both transportation and the electric grid.

Ceramic Industry Should Bring Carbon Reducing Cold Sintering Process Out of Labs and Into Manufacturing Says New Research

University of Warwick

A new techno-economic analysis, by a team led by a researcher from WMG at the University of Warwick, shows that the energy intensive ceramic industry would gain both financial and environmental benefits if it moved to free the cold sintering process from languishing in labs to actual use in manufacturing everything from high tech to domestic ceramics.
