Stanford University scientists have found a new, highly efficient way to produce liquid ethanol from carbon monoxide gas. This promising discovery could provide an eco-friendly alternative to conventional ethanol production from corn and other crops, say the scientists. Their results are published in the April 9 advanced online edition of the journal Nature.
A new study appears to back up the idea that building more wind power in order to meet peak demand – even if the turbines sometimes produce more energy than the grid needs – could be a better strategy than spending resources on trying to store the energy in batteries.
Nanosize structure is a thousand times thinner than an ordinary sheet of paper. A highly desirable solution that can change the dynamics of solar cell design.
Organic food isn't noticeably better for people's health, according to a meta-analysis of past studies carried out by Stanford University scientists.
A team of Stanford University researchers has managed to create the world's first complete computer model of an organism.
A team of international scientists studying neutrinos have determined enigmatic neutrinos behave like other elementary particles at the quantum level.
Stanford University scientist Yi Cui says he wants a see-through iPhone - and he's done his bit to help create one by developing a transparent battery.
Batteries are often thought of as energy storage devices because that is how we use them on a day to day basis.
Google plans to build an ultra-high speed, fiber-based broadband network on California's Stanford University campus. Internet speeds are expected to hit a blazing 1 gigabit per second - more than 100 times faster than what most people have access to today.
A Stanford University team has developed a new water purifier based on nanomaterials that could cut costs for clean drinking water dramatically.
Heat waves like the one now roasting the Eastern Seaboard are likely to become commonplace over the next 30 years, say scientists at Stanford University - even if global temperatures rise by only one degree Celcius.
A Stanford University professor has sequenced his entire genome in just two weeks, and for a cost of less than $50,000.
