Rice lab creates RGB color display technology with aluminum nanorods
The quest to create artificial “squid skin” — camouflaging metamaterials that can “see” colors and automatically blend into the background — is one step closer to reality, thanks to a breakthrough color-display technology unveiled this week by Rice University’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP).  (September 15, 2014)

 

Rice rolls ‘neat’ nanotube fibersRice rolls ‘neat’ nanotube fibers
Rice University researchers’ acid-free approach leads to strong conductive carbon threads
The very idea of fibers made of carbon nanotubes is neat, but Rice University scientists are making them neat — literally. The single-walled carbon nanotubes in new fibers created at Rice line up like a fistful of uncooked spaghetti through a process designed by chemist Angel Martí and his colleagues.

Phosphorus a promising semiconductorPhosphorus a promising semiconductor
Rice University physicists find 2-D form pays no heed to defects
Defects damage the ideal properties of many two-dimensional materials, like carbon-based graphene. Phosphorus just shrugs. That makes it a promising candidate for nano-electronic applications that require stable properties. (September 8, 2014)

 

Rice chemist wins rare NSF Special Creativity AwardRice chemist wins rare NSF Special Creativity Award
Grant extension will bolster Zubarev’s effort to produce gold nanorods
Ounce for ounce, gold nanorods that are commercially available cost about 7,000 times more than bulk gold, but that may change, thanks to an award-winning research program in the laboratory of Rice University chemist Eugene Zubarev.  (September 8, 2014)

 

NSF renews grant for biological physics research at RiceNSF renews grant for biological physics research at Rice
$11.75 million in funding bolsters Center for Theoretical Biological Physics
Rice University has received a five-year, $11.75 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics. (September 2, 2014)

 

Synthesis produces new antibioticSynthesis produces new antibiotic
Rice University scientists confirm potent synthesis of natural tetracycline
A collaboration at Rice has led to the total synthesis of a recently discovered natural antibiotic. The laboratory recreation of a fungus-derived antibiotic, viridicatumtoxin B, may someday help bolster the fight against bacteria that evolve resistance to treatments in hospitals and clinics around the world.

New solutions needed to recycle fracking waterNew solutions needed to recycle fracking water
Rice University scientists seek long-term answers to stem increase of water use at wells
Rice University scientists have performed a detailed analysis of water produced by hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking) of three gas reservoirs and suggested environmentally friendly remedies are needed to treat and reuse it.  (August 28, 2014)

 

Rice, UT and A&M form NSF hub to move ideas to marketplaceRice, UT and A&M form NSF hub to move ideas to marketplace
Rice University, the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University have received a three-year, $3.75 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to become a regional innovation hub that translates academic research into useful technologies with commercial applications.  (August 28, 2014)
