Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powersBoron atoms stretch out, gain new powers
Rice simulations demonstrate 1-D material’s stiffness, electrical versatility
Hold on, there, graphene. You might think you’re the most interesting new nanomaterial of the century, but boron might already have you beat, according to scientists at Rice University.  (January 26, 2017)

 

Theory lends transparency to how glass breaksTheory lends transparency to how glass breaks
Rice calculations detail forces that morph metallic glass when under stress, show where it may fail
Over time, when a metallic glass is put under stress, its atoms will shift, slide and ultimately form bands that leave the material more prone to breaking. Rice University scientists have developed new computational methods based on a general theory of glasses to explain why.  (January 23, 2017)

 

Treated carbon pulls radioactive elements from waterTreated carbon pulls radioactive elements from water
Researchers at Rice, Kazan universities develop unique sorbents, target Fukushima accident site
Researchers at Rice University and Kazan Federal University in Russia have found a way to extract radioactivity from water and said their discovery could help purify the hundreds of millions of gallons of contaminated water stored after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident.  (January 19, 2017)

 

3 Rice alumni make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 20173 Rice alumni make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2017
Three Rice University alumni made this year’s Forbes’ 30 Under 30, an honor roll of people under 30 years old who are the “brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers.” Forbes magazine featured 30 honorees on each of the lists for 20 industries.  (January 11, 2017)

 

Carbon dots dash toward ‘green’ recycling roleCarbon dots dash toward ‘green’ recycling role
Rice scientists, colleagues use doped graphene quantum dots to reduce carbon dioxide to fuel
Graphene quantum dots may offer a simple way to recycle waste carbon dioxide into valuable fuel rather than release it into the atmosphere or bury it underground, according to Rice University scientists.  (December 16, 2016)

 

Light provides pull for future nanocatalyst measurementLight provides pull for future nanocatalyst measurement
Rice University photonics lab tests photon-induced force microscopy
Rice University nanophotonics researcher Isabell Thomann uses lasers, light-activated materials and light-measuring nanoscale tips to push the boundaries of experimental nanoscience, but light is providing the pull in her latest study.  (December 14, 2016)

 

Decoding cement’s shape promises greener concreteDecoding cement’s shape promises greener concrete
Rice scientists develop ‘programmable’ cement particles to attain enhanced properties
Bringing order to disorder is key to making stronger and greener cement, the paste that binds concrete. (December 7, 2016)

 

Bioscience grants benefit cutting-edge researchBioscience grants benefit cutting-edge research
Gulf Coast Consortia announces Dunn Foundation seed grants to study genome editing, micro-temperatures, blood stem cells and brain function
Four teams of scientists at Rice University and other Gulf Coast Consortia (GCC) institutions have earned research seed grants from the John S. Dunn Collaborative Research Awards, and a fifth group won a grant to support a cancer symposium.  (December 5, 2016)
