NanoSIMS Ion Probes Help Measure Very Sharp Concentration Gradients in Igneous Minerals

NanoSIMS Ion Probes Help Measure Very Sharp Concentration Gradients in Igneous Minerals

Super-eruptions are not the only type of eruption to be considered when evaluating hazards at volcanoes with protracted eruption histories, such as the Yellowstone (Wyoming), Long Valley (California), and Valles (New Mexico) calderas. There have been more than 23 effusive eruptions of rhyolite lava at Yellowstone since the last caldera-forming eruption ~640,000 years ago, all of similar or greater magnitude than the largest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century.

Scientists Discover New Chemical Reaction Pathway on Titanium Dioxide

A research team comprising scientists from Tohoku University, RIKEN, the University of Tokyo, Chiba University and University College London have discovered a new chemical reaction pathway on titanium dioxide (TiO2), an important photocatalytic material [More]
Researchers Reconstruct 3-D Atomic Map of Zeolite Material to Track Down Aluminum

Researchers Reconstruct 3-D Atomic Map of Zeolite Material to Track Down Aluminum

Despite decades of industrial use, the exact chemical transformations occurring within zeolites, a common material used in the conversion of oil to gasoline, remain poorly understood. Now scientists have found a way to locate-with atomic precision-spots within the material where chemical reactions take place, and how these spots shut down. [More]
ITL Researcher Develops Two Tandem Cells Embedded with Nanoparticles for Converting Windows to Solar Cells

ITL Researcher Develops Two Tandem Cells Embedded with Nanoparticles for Converting Windows to Solar Cells

The researcher Sandra Casillas from the Technological Institute of La Laguna (ITL), in the north of Mexico, has managed to patent 20 projects, and an example of her work is the design of two Tandem cells that turns windows into a solar panel capable of capturing up to eight volts per square meter of light and allows to recharge electronics. It is also transparent, allowing visibility. [More]
