Nanoribbon film keeps glass ice-freeNanoribbon film keeps glass ice-free
Rice University lab refines de-icing film that allows radio frequencies to pass
New work by Rice chemist James Tour and his colleagues could keep glass surfaces from windshields to skyscrapers free of ice and fog while retaining their transparency to radio frequencies (RF). (September 16, 2014)


Scientists refine formula for nanotube typesScientists refine formula for nanotube types
Rice University theorists determine factors that give tubes their chiral angles
Professor Boris Yakobson and his Rice colleagues, postdoctoral researcher Vasilii Artyukhov and research scientist Evgeni Penev, have come up with the seed (or perhaps, bean) of a simple formula that describes why nanotubes have chirality. (September 16, 2014)


‘Squid skin’ metamaterials project yields vivid color display‘Squid skin’ metamaterials project yields vivid color display
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)
