Way found to make alane a better hydrogen fuel option for vehicles

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, in collaboration with several partners, have discovered a less-expensive, more energy-efficient way to produce alane — aluminum trihydride — a hydrogen source widely considered to be a technological dead-end for use in automotive vehicles.

We’re not in Kansas anymore: Fluorescent ruby red roofs stay as cool as white

Elementary school science teaches us that in the sun, dark colors get hot while white stays cool. Now new research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has found an exception: scientists have determined that certain dark pigments can stay just as cool as white by using fluorescence, the re-emission of absorbed light.

Breakthrough in materials science: Scientists bond metals with nearly all surfaces

Through this “nanoscale-sculpturing” process, metals such as aluminium, titanium, or zinc can permanently be joined with nearly all other materials, become water-repellent, or improve their biocompatibility. The potential spectrum of applications of these “super connections” is extremely broad, ranging from metalwork in industry right through to safer implants in medical technology. Their results have now been published in the journal Nanoscale Horizons of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
