Researchers from the Department of Energy and Stanford University create super-wires

These super-efficient wires can conduct electricity without any loss of energy. It can also be knitted into a fabric. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy and from Stanford University have devised a method to make incredibly thin wires which have extraordinary properties. Researchers have used diamondoids, the smallest possible forms of diamond, to build…

Researchers document key processes of photosynthesis

This could eventually lead to improved and cheaper biofuels. In a major breakthrough researchers have for the first time been able to capture the exact set of chemical reactions that make a photosynthesis. The discovery proves that the chemical reactions which strip electrons from water and thus initiate the conversion of solar energy into chemical…
